In the summer of 2019, the University of Wisconsin Colleges officially closed.  The 13 two-year institutions were renamed Branch Campuses and were realigned with a UW System 4-year Univesity within the region.  In the fall of 2019, the University of Wisconsin Extended Campus was named the data custodian of the education records for all former students who attended a UW College 2-year campus prior to the fall of 2019.

  • UW Extended Campus partnered with Parchment to process transcript orders.
  • The UW Colleges transcript remains the official academic record of these former students.
  • You may order official transcripts only.  The fee is $9.00 per transcript request.
The ordering process for your UW COLLEGE transcript is dependent on your Dates of Attendance at the 2-year campus
  • If you were enrolled at a UW College 2-year campus BEFORE 9/1/2019, use the “Order your Transcript” link below to place your transcript order.

Transcript FAQ

How long does it take to receive a UW Colleges transcript?

Regular processing time is 1-3 business days from the date your completed request is received by the Registrar’s Office. If there is a hold on a student’s record or any outstanding obligations to the UW Colleges (such as unpaid fees), the official transcript will not be released until the hold or obligation is resolved.

  • For enrollments prior to 2003, please allow up to 7-10 business days for your transcript orders to be processed.  We are currently digiting archived transcript records, which may cause a delay in the time to fulfill your transcript order. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Why are unofficial transcripts not available?

After the UW System restructure, which involved the dissolution of the UW Colleges and the new Branch Campus each being assigned to one of seven 4-year UW institutions in the region, the UW Colleges student information system (PRISM) was no longer accessible to former students to access their unofficial transcripts.  Since access to PRISM is no longer available, the custodian of these records provides an official transcript only.

  • Note: If you request to have an official transcript sent to yourself, the order would be issued to the student and is considered an unofficial transcript request. A transcript sent to you may be kept for your own personal records and referenced in the event that you need an unofficial transcript.
What information is needed to order a UW Colleges transcript?

You will need to provide your name (including maiden), date of birth, and email address.  While a student ID number is not required, your former UW Colleges student ID number or the last four digits of your Social Security Number can assist with processing an order.  An email address is required, as you will be contacted by email in the event there are problems with your transcript request.

What is included on your UW Colleges transcript?

An official UW Colleges transcript is a complete record of a student’s enrollment at any of the 14 UW Colleges campuses.  Student records that include enrollments at more than one of the UW Colleges campuses are combined on one transcript. The student’s record is confidential and is not released from the UW Colleges without authorization from the student.
