Students are required to submit official transcripts for all postsecondary institutions attended. To transfer coursework to UA, the student must request that the transferring institution submit an official transcript to the Office of the University Registrar Box 870134 Tuscaloosa, AL 35487. UA will accept electronic transcripts that are submitted directly from the sending institution in a format that the sending institution has certified as being 'official'. These are normally sent through a third-party provider such as the National Student Clearinghouse, Parchment, or eSCRIP-SAFE. Electronic submissions by the transferring institution or through these third-party providers can be made to firstname.lastname@example.org. UA will not accept electronic copies of transcripts sent directly from the student. Transcripts can be accepted in person at the front desk of the Registrar’s Office (Room 206, Student Services Building) as long as the transcript is presented in a sealed envelope in a format that the sending institution has certified as being 'official'.
