The University of the arts



For your convenience and security, all official transcript requests must be made online through the National Student Clearinghouse website. Full details and instructions are available online at

Along with this order process being more secure, the University is now offering official electronic transcripts, which is the fastest and most affordable method to receive your transcript. You can request one copy for yourself, save it and then forward it to as many places as needed. The transcript is official and does not expire.

Current students can also view and print their unofficial transcripts through the Self Service Student Planning module, or through the student portal under their Academic Profile Menu.

All questions pertaining to transcript requests should be directed to the Office of the Registrar at 215.717.6420.

Graduate Credit Petition

Students who have completed course work in the Professional Institute for Educators program earn graduate credit but this has not been reflected on the transcript type issued by The University of the Arts.  PIE students are asked to list their highest university credentials on registration materials but to date have not been required to provide official documentation of these credentials.  If a student would like for his/her official University of the Arts transcript to reflect Graduate Record, please complete the steps below for a Graduate Credit Petition.  In addition to completing the Graduate Record Petition, students will be required to submit a copy of their transcript from universities attended where the highest level degree was earned.

The completion of the Graduate Credit Petition will convert all existing and future coursework taken through either PIE or SMS to be listed on The University of the Arts transcript as an academic level of "Graduate Record" instead of "Continuing Studies."  This petition will only need to be completed one time in order for a student’s coursework to be reflected as Graduate Record.
