Transcripts of Records

An official transcript is a certified copy of a student’s permanent record that shows the academic status of the student at the time of issuance. The registrar in Rapid City will release transcripts upon formal written request by the student. Requests must include the student’s full name, as recorded while attending National American University; Social Security number or Student ID number; date of birth; campus last attended; current address, telephone number and e-mail address; number of copies desired; last term of attendance (if known); to whom and where the transcripts are to be sent; and the student’s original signature. Transcripts may be withheld because of indebtedness to the university.
