Current and former students (last enrolled through Fall 2008 or after) can print their own unofficial transcript using MyNIU.

All former students who had previous access to MyNIU will have access to MyNIU indefinitely for unofficial transcripts, bill payments, etc. If you need assistance resetting your Z-ID password for MyNIU access, contact the DoIT Service Desk at 815-753-8100.

If you are a former student who was last enrolled prior to Fall 2008 and needs an unofficial transcript, you can come into our office with a photo ID and we will print one for you. If you are not in the area you can mail us a signed request for an unofficial transcript and we will mail one back to you.
