A designee is permitted to collect your academic transcript with a hand signed note of permission from you.

This is my first term of enrollment. How do I get an official academic transcript?
During your first term of enrollment, we are unable to process an academic transcript request until coursework and final grades are posted to your academic record. Coursework and final grades are posted to academic records approximately ten (10) calendar days following the end of fall and spring semesters and of the first summer session. To request an official academic transcript that includes your final grades for the current term, select the Grade Posting processing option when submitting your request.
If you have immediate need for a record of your enrollment for the current term, you are encouraged to view and print a copy of your schedule or unofficial transcript through the Student Center of My Akron.
I have an outstanding account balance, and the Office of Student Accounts placed a hold on my record. I need an official academic transcript for a job opportunity. What can I do?

If the Office of Student Accounts/Bursar determines that a special exception is warranted, you will be directed to complete the Special Exception Official Academic Transcript Request.
