Official electronic transcript requests are processed within 1-3 business days after the order has been placed and are the fastest way to receive your transcript. If you need a paper copy of your transcript sent via expedited delivery, you can select this option from the Mailing Method drop-down menu on the transcript ordering page. Please be aware that shipping and handling fees will be applied to your order for expedited shipping.

Unofficial transcripts are only available to currently enrolled students. These are available on MavLINK under the Academics drop down link by clicking Unofficial Transcript.
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.
Learn more about FERPA.
You may request up to five (5) copies of your transcript per day. At the initial cost of $15 per transcript ordered.
When your order is initially placed your credit card will be authorized for the purchase amount, however, it will not be charged until the document has been delivered.
* If you selected to have any documents in your order processed after the next semester's grades are posted (hold for grades) or once your degree is officially awarded (hold for degree), you will be charged in full immediately even though your document will not be processed until a later time. You will not see a pre-authorization charge in this case.

When creating a new account, you may be prompted with a notification that the Student ID you have used conflicts with an existing Student ID. This occurs when you have previously requested a transcript through MavLINK. You will need to verify your previous school email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). You will then need to select YES to De-Activate Your Old Account and Create a New One. Then click the De-Activate Old/Create New Account button.
Yes.Currently Enrolled Students (Hold for Grades): If you are enrolled in the current semester and want all your current semester grades posted on your transcript prior to the transcript being sent out, you can select Hold for Grades when completing your transcript request in MavLINK. Your transcript will be held and sent out after all of your semester courses are graded at the end of the semester.
Graduating Students (Hold for Degree): If you are graduating in the current semester and would like your degree posted on your transcript before it is sent out, please select Hold for Degree when ordering your official transcript in MavLINK. Your transcript will then be sent out after your current semester courses are graded and your degree is posted at the end of the semester. Note: It can take up to three weeks after the degree conferral date before your degree is posted to your transcript.
General Electronic Transcript Questions
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.
The University of Nebraska 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.
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.
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.
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.
The preferred format is PDF or JPEG, but we accept most any format.
General Document Download and Opening Questions
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.
Please have the recipient check their junk mail for the e-mail.
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.
In order to open a certified PDF, the free Adobe Reader must be installed. Download the latest version of the free Adobe Reader.
As an authentic PDF, this document has embedded restrictions specified by the creator that may or may not allow for the following:
- Alteration of content
- Copying and extracting content
- Limited viewing privileges
It is important to note that the use of this document may be monitored. The rights are subject to revocation. To learn more about secure PDF's please visit www.Adobe.com.
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.
