How To Request an Official Transcript

Requesting Official transcripts via SPIRE:

IF YOU HAVE ACCESS TO SPIRE, please request your transcripts via your student center.  Here you will have all the options for transcript delivery that are detailed below.  If you need help accessing your SPIRE account, please use the 'Forgot Your Password?' option on the SPIRE page.  An email with your SPIRE ID and password will be sent to your non-UMass address. Important: if you order a paper transcript and you need it to reflect grading for a specific term or to show degree information, generate an unofficial transcript first to determine if the information has been posted to your record.

Requesting Official transcripts for off-campus delivery through our automated transcript delivery system:

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO SPIRE, you can order an electronic transcript or have a transcript mailed through our automated transcript delivery service.  There is a cost for this service:  $3.00 for electronic transcripts and $5.50 for paper transcripts.  While the fastest, most economical option is to order an electronic transcript, we do offer expedited mailing services of paper transcripts for an additional cost.

Requesting official transcripts to be delivered to UMass Amherst on-campus offices:

Former students also have the option to order transcripts to be picked up at the University Registrar’s office or have them delivered to other UMass Amherst offices at no cost.  Please use the transcript request form and mail or fax your request to our office.

If you do not have a SPIRE login, and are unable to use the transcript request form, the University will provide your official transcript(s) upon receipt of your written authorization to on-campus recipients or for pick up at the University Registrar's office.  Your request must include:
•  your signature
•  all names used on your academic record (last, first, middle/maiden/other name)
•  Student ID # or Social Security number
•  your date of birth
•  your address, telephone number and email address
•  any additional information which will enable us to locate your record
