The Records and Documents fee will be assessed upon entry to the university for all new undergraduate, graduate, and professional students including new direct from high school, transfer, and reentry students. This fee will replace the transcript fee, schedule change fee, and application for graduation fee.
Degree seeking students will be assessed $130. Non-degree seeking students will be assessed $50. Students will only be charged this fee once in their lifetime, with the exception of students who move from non-degree to degree seeking. Additional Information about the Records Fee.
