If you need proof that you are a student, one method is to order a transcript. There is a fee of $3 for each transcript. The cost will rise to $10 per transcript on Jan. 1. Transcripts can usually be produced in three to five working days.
How to order
Requests for a copy of your Anderson University official transcript may be submitted online through our Online Transcript Ordering service provided through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC), a non-profit organization serving the higher education community. We encourage you to use this secure site to order your official transcript as it:
- Supports payment by credit card (fee varies based on delivery option choices)
- Allows you to order anytime – day or night
- Provides email and text communication with you while your order is being processed
- Permits you to track the status of your order online
Through this service, you can request your transcript order to be delivered to your chosen recipient via multiple methods: USPS mail, Hold for Pickup in the AU Registrar’s office, or FedEx. This service also allows us to send electronic transcripts in a PDF format. The electronic transcript link is valid for 30 days. Electronic PDF official transcripts must be delivered directly to the intended recipient. If you order a transcript to be sent directly to yourself, you will be unable to forward the electronic transcript to another recipient.
If other documents must be sent with your transcript, you will have the option to upload them at the time of your request.
Only use the Special Instructions field to communicate special circumstances regarding delivery methods or attachments. Do not use this field to request for additional information to be added to your official transcript (I.e., SSN, LSAC ID, etc.). We cannot alter information that prints on an official transcript.
LSAC and AMCAS applicants: The National Student Clearinghouse provides delivery of electronic transcripts directly to LSAC and AMCAS. When ordering an electronic transcript for delivery to LSAC, the individual is prompted to enter his or her LSAC account number. Individuals submitting a transcript to AMCAS need to provide both their AAMC ID and Transaction ID when ordering. There is no additional charge for this service.
If you have trouble ordering or retrieving your electronic transcript, please go to the National Student Clearinghouse Help Center and review their Help Topics.
Verification of Enrollment
If you need proof that you are a student, one of the ways the Registrar’s office can help is through a verification of enrollment. Verification of Enrollment can usually be produced on the same day.
Anderson University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide both registration and degree verifications. This is the easiest way to obtain a verification instantly 24/7.

What is an Apostille?
An “apostille” is a form of authentication issued for documents that will be used in countries that participate in the Hague Convention of 1961. A list of countries that accept apostilles is provided by the U.S. State Department.
The Office of the Secretary of State provides apostille and authentication service to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals for documents that will be used overseas. Types of documents which can be authenticated include corporate documents such diplomas; transcripts; and letters relating to degrees.
IMPORTANT! Apostille certificates are issued by a state government only for documents which have been signed by a government official (or a Notary Public) of that same state.
In order to obtain an apostille you must provide the following information to the Indiana Secretary of State along with the document(s) to be authenticated:
An original signature;
An original signature and seal/stamp of a Indiana State Notary Public or records custodian; and
Cover Letter, which must include the following:
The name of the country where the documents will be sent. (Different countries require different certifications, and the documents cannot be certified without this information.);
A daytime phone number where the customer can be reached for questions; and
Information as to where the documents should be mailed after processing.
POSTAGE PAID ENVELOPE FOR DOCUMENT RETURN
There are no fees for apostille services.
