Important Transcript Information/Options:

  • Electronic Transcripts: Any student who has attended JMU since Fall1995 may request a transcript be sent electronically.  Before ordering, contact the recipient to determine if they will accept an electronic transcript in their email.
    • If you attended JMU at any time prior to Fall 1995, your student record is in a format that is not compatible with electronic delivery.  
  • Expedited Transcript Shipping Options: To reduce transcript shipping time, your only option is to privately purchase a UPS Label by visiting www.ups.com.  Please contact UPS directly if you have questions about filling out your label or payment options.  The UPS Label can be submitted along with our transcript request form by uploading the label as an attachment (See Document Attachments).
