Obtaining a Transcript
There are two types of transcripts: an unofficial transcript with the School of Law registrar’s signature; and an official transcript in a sealed envelope from the main campus Registrar’s Office.
When an employer requests a law school transcript, an unofficial transcript is usually sufficient (unless the employer specifies “official transcript”). A transcript printed from the web is not sufficient. Unofficial law school transcripts may be obtained from the School of Law Office of the Registrar. Students may make requests for transcripts in person, via fax 937-229-4769 or by email at LawOffOfReg@udayton.edu. The request should include the following information:
- Student name
- Term last attended
- Student ID number (if not a current student include your SS#)
- Date of birth
- Student mailbox number (if not a current student include your address)
There is no charge for unofficial transcripts, and the process usually takes three to five days. Most employers allow students to submit photocopies of transcripts, so to save time, students can order one copy of their transcripts and make multiple copies of it to fulfill employer requests.
Official transcripts in a sealed envelope (necessary for bar exam applications) may be ordered from the main campus University of Dayton Registrar’s Office. Students may make their requests online, in person or through the mail. Fax and email requests are not accepted.
