Obtaining an unofficial copy of your transcript
An unofficial transcript, available to you in OneStart for up to five years after you are no longer enrolled, is designed to show information identical to your official transcript. Term and cumulative IU GPA statistics are based on university-wide rules (for example, all X grades are honored for exclusion from the GPA, and all coursework and grades are included even if repeated).
Log into OneStart. The
"Student Center" area should be visible; if it is not, select the
Servicestab, and choose the
Student Self-Servicesection on the left.
Go to Student Center.
Note: If your Internet pop-up blocker is set to block all pop-ups, you'll need to turn it off or change the setting to allow them; refer to your browser help for instructions. For further assistance, contact your local Support Center.
- Under "Academics", click
My Academics & Grades.
- Under "Transcripts", click
View my unofficial transcript.
- On the next page, from the drop-down menus, select your campus or
program and the type of report you want (i.e., select
Unofficial/Cur Enrl/All Careerto include your current classes in the transcript, or select
Unofficial/All Careerto leave them out). Click
At the end of the transcript, you will also see the Student Program GPA summary. These statistics are calculated according to the rules of your current program (e.g., whether courses may be repeated for credit). Certain courses may be designated with a note indicating the course was repeated or an equivalent course was later completed. Courses with this note are excluded from the Student Program GPA calculation.
Obtaining an official transcript
Your official transcript is available through the Office of the Registrar; see Transcripts. You can also order a copy of your official transcript online through eTranscript Request.
The eTranscript Request service allows students to request official
transcripts through the
Student Self-Service area in
OneStart. It uses secure credit card purchasing from Nelnet Business
Solutions. The eTranscript Request service is available
Monday-Saturday 6am-5am, and Sunday 8am-12am.

- If you want the request to be held until a grade change occurs, you must select the institution and term as well as the class for which you are awaiting the change.
- If you request that the transcript request be held until grades are awarded for a particular term, eTranscript Request will check to see if you were enrolled for the prior term or are currently enrolled, and verify that some of the grades have not yet been awarded. If all grades have been awarded or you were not enrolled in the prior term or currently enrolled, this option will not appear.
