Transcript & 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 reverse of the transcript. Transcripts cite date of graduation if a student has met all academic and administrative requirements for her or his degree program.
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 are issued only when financial obligations to UPSem have been met, as certified by the Business Office.
