When will I receive my grades?

An Unofficial Transcript will be issued by regular mail with your official grades within 4-6 weeks from when your grades are submitted to the Registrar’s Office at UOP. Along with your unofficial transcript, you will also receive information regarding how to request an OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT. However, you DO NOT have to wait until you receive your unofficial transcript to order your official transcript.

If you would like to order your transcript immediately, you can request official transcripts one of two ways. You can download the form and route it to the Registrar’s Office with a check as payment (go to http://web.pacific.edu/x31133.xml to get information about Requesting Transcripts).

Or you can request an official transcript over the Internet. Go to the website of the registrar’s office: http://web.pacific.edu/x7062.xml and choose the National Student Clearinghouse option which is under the heading Former Students. This is an instant way to request transcripts online. You must pay with a credit card and there is a $7 charge for using this service. Transcripts cannot be requested by email, through fax, or over the phone.

It is imperative that you very clearly indicate ALL PEDU numbers that you wish to appear on your official transcript. Otherwise, your transcript could be sent out to you missing a course(s). When requesting online, please write your classes in the fields marked “Degree/Certificate Title.” You can write more than one class on a line if you have more than 4 classes.

Also, on the second page under the heading Delivery Options, choose the Processing Option “After Grades Are Posted”. If you do not, your transcript could be sent without important information and you will have to re-order/ re-pay!

PDUs are determined by the amount of credits a teacher is getting from a graduate or non-graduate course at a university. All educators who have obtained a final license type will soon be required to complete Professional Development Units (PDUs) to renew, regardless of employment status. A “final license type” is defined as a license that an educator could choose to renew indefinitely, for the remainder of a career. This State of Oregon change takes effect January 1st, 2013.
