Students and alumni who attended after 1986 can order an official transcript as a secure electronic PDF. Due to shorter mailing times, electronic transcripts are the quickest method for receiving your transcript. Anyone with Adobe Reader will be able to receive the secure transcript. You will also be able to track the status of your transcript requests online.

To receive a copy of your official transcript, your UNO account must be free of financial or disciplinary encumbrances. If you have any unsettled encumbrances with these offices, there will be a "hold" on your record and we will not be able to issue your transcript. If you think you might have an unresolved hold from any UNO office and would like a Service Representative to check your status, please call the Office of the Registrar at (402) 554-2314. If you have a hold, you must contact the appropriate office to resolve your hold before submitting your transcript request.

I have a hold on my record. Can I receive my transcript?

Can I receive an unofficial copy of my transcript?

Why do I need to provide consent?

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. Generally, schools must have written permission from the student in order to release any information from a student's education record. During the order process, you will be asked to provide consent. You may complete your order but it will not be processed until your consent has been received.

Visit for more information regarding FERPA.

General Electronic Transcript Questions

What is an electronic transcript or eTranscript and how does it work?

An electronic transcript or eTranscript is a certified PDF of your official transcript. The University of Nebraska at Omaha has partnered with Avow Systems, Inc. to securely process your transcript request. Recipients of the official eTranscript receive an email with instructions on how to retrieve the document from our secure website. Official eTranscripts can be sent to any valid email address.

How can I be sure an electronic transcript is real?

The University of Nebraska at Omaha’s official eTranscript is a certified PDF that displays a blue ribbon on the notification bar across the top of Adobe Reader, ensuring the recipient that the digital signature is authentic and the contents of the eTranscript have not been altered. Recipients of UNO’s official eTranscript must use Adobe Reader to view the transcript.

Why does my eTranscript say COPY OF OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT when I print it?

An eTranscript is considered official in PDF format only. If printed, the words COPY OF OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT will appear to indicate that the paper copy is not an official institutional document.

Who accepts PDF transcripts?

PDF transcript delivery is becoming increasingly common. However, before requesting PDF transcript delivery, you should verify that the recipient will accept an electronic transcript. Additionally, it is important that you verify the appropriate e-mail address for transmission of the transcript.

Can I forward a PDF transcript to someone else?

Each transcript issued in PDF format has warnings that the document is intended for the recipient only. In addition, the e-mail notification to the recipient states the same. The University of Nebraska at Omaha will not certify the authenticity of any PDF transcript that has been replicated or forwarded to any person or organization other than the intended recipient.

What file formats do you accept for user supplied attachments?

We accept the following file formats: jpg,jpeg,gif,png,eps,cdr,ai,pdf,tif,tiff,bmp,zip,doc,docx,xls,xlsx,txt,xml

General Document Download and Opening Questions

How long does the recipient have to download my PDF transcript?

The recipient has 30 days to download your PDF transcript before it expires. Recipients who have not downloaded your PDF transcript receive a reminder e-mail a few days prior to expiration.

What if the recipient does not receive the e-mail required to download the PDF transcript?

Please have the recipient check their junk mail for the e-mail.

What is a certified PDF?

It is an official transcript that has been digitally signed and therefore contains special characteristics. If this document has been issued by the School, and this document is viewed using Adobe® Acrobat version 6.0 or greater, or Adobe® Reader version 6.04 or greater, it will reveal a digital signature that has been applied to the transcript. This digital signature will appear in a pop-up screen or status bar on the document, display a blue ribbon, and declare that the document was certified by the School with a valid certificate issued by GeoTrust CA for Adobe®. This document certification can be validated by clicking on the Signature Properties of the document. The blue ribbon symbol is your assurance that the digital signature is valid, the document is authentic, and the contents of the transcript have not been altered.

If the transcript does not display a valid certification and signature message, reject this transcript immediately. An invalid digital signature display means either the digital signature is not authentic, or the document has been altered.

The digital signature can also be revoked by the transcript office if there is cause, and digital signatures can expire. A document with an invalid digital signature display should be rejected

Why am I receiving blank emails?

This behavior is caused by the security settings on some mail applications, such as Microsoft Outlook. The email is not actually blank, rather the mail client is suppressing the image in the email and displaying a large blank box instead. If you scroll down, the email text will appear. To fix this issue try the following:
  • Scroll down and the email text will appear.
  • Right Click on the blank image box and select “Download Pictures”. You can also select “Add Sender to the Safe Sender’s List” so that future emails will appear correctly. The Image will appear in normal size and the email text will be visible. “"This computer must be connected to the network in order to open this document. Your permission to open this document offline has expired. Make sure this computer is connected to the network and the Adobe LiveCycle The reason is because the recipient is behind a firewall (school,company,military, etc. ) that is preventing the PDF from contacting our security servers. One resolution is to have them try to open it on a separate network such as their home.
