Transcript and Enrollment Verification Requests
Official Union Presbyterian Seminary transcripts and e-transcripts are created as a non-reproducible document and bear the seal of the institution. Transcripts list grades for the courses a student has taken and the degree program in which the student was enrolled. A key to the grading system in use at the time of a student's enrollment appears on the transcript. Transcripts cite date of graduation if a student has met all academic and administrative requirements for her or his degree program.
If a PC(USA) student has signed a release form, UPSem may send transcripts and other relevant information to the student's Committee on Preparation for Ministry each year. Students belonging to other denominations may make arrangements for similar assistance by contacting Dr. Edna Banes, the Dean of Students.
Transcripts are issued only when the student's financial obligations to UPSem have been met, as certified by the Business Office. UPSem does not provide or send copies of student transcripts from other institutions. Transcripts for alumni/ae are issued only when financial obligations to UPSem have been met, as certified by the Business Office.
Current Student Enrollment Verification
Current students may also request enrollment verifications using the Transcript and Enrollment Verification Request Form or Self Service. In Self Service, simply write in the comment area that you desire enrollment verification rather than a transcript. You can also find paper forms for enrollment verification or transcripts outside the Office of the Registrar.
Current Student Transcript Requests
Current students may request in writing that the Registrar's Office send an academic transcript to designated persons or institutions at no charge. Paper requests using the Transcript and Enrollment Verification Request Form must bear a valid student signature. Ordinarily, student records are mailed within one week of receipt of such requests. Additional time may be needed at busy times of year.
Current students may also request transcripts through PowerCampus Self-Service or Transcripts on Demand.

Electronic Transcript Delivery
Union Presbyterian Seminary is also partnering with SCRIP-SAFE International to deliver academic transcripts electronically. This partnership allows UPSem to provide official transcripts to network recipients or outside the network (OneTime) to any third party anywhere in the world at anytime.
This initiative provides you with the fastest delivery time; is totally secure; and provides you and the school with total tracking of delivery and receipt.
- Network Delivery- Many colleges, universities and other agencies are members of this secure network and actively receive electronic transcripts. Please check network recipients to see if your intended destination is a network member.
- OneTime Delivery- If your intended recipient is not a network member (including a transcript sent to you); your transcript can still be delivered electronically. Receivers are designated and identified by you, the requestor, through the recipient’s email address.
- Your transcript is never delivered by email; instead your recipient is notified by email that your transcript is available for pickup at the specific “one-time” URL identified in the email.
- To insure prompt delivery and receipt, make sure the recipient knows that you are sending them an electronic transcript and will accept the electronic version.
- Finally, ask the receiver to white list @escrip-safe.com
