Academic Record and Transcript of Credits

A record (transcript) is permanently maintained for each student who enrolls at Missouri State University-West Plains. This record includes a list of courses in which the student has enrolled (except for those dropped during the Change of Schedule Period) as well as the credits and grades earned in those courses. For students with transfer credit, an entry will appear on the transcript indicating the number of credit hours awarded for each institution attended.

All students are issued an official copy of their transcript upon graduation. Requests for additional copies must be submitted in writing on a Transcript Request form available at the office of registration and records, at or by providing the following information:

  1. Student's full name and any former names;
  2. Student's ID number or social security number;
  3. Student's birthdate;
  4. Last semester of attendance;
  5. Student's current address and daytime phone number;
  6. Address to which transcript is to be mailed; and
  7. Student's signature to authorize the release of transcript.

Transcripts will not be released for students who owe $25 or more to the University. Such debts must be paid in full before the transcript can be released.

No fee is charged for transcripts issued to the student or sent via regular mail. A $25 fee will be charged for transcripts sent via express or overnight mail.
