To receive a copy of your transcript, all financial obligations to the University must be clear/current. This includes your account with the Student Account Services (317) 274-2451 or Student Loan Administration (812) 855-4511. If you have any past balance due with any of these offices, there will be a "hold" on your record and we will not issue your transcript. If you think you might have any past debt to any of these offices, please contact that office for clearance before submitting your transcript request. If you are unsure about any possible account holds or have any other questions about the status of a prior transcript request, give us a call (317) 274-1519 and we can check the status for you.
