How to guide



Check the Hold for Degree Posting option if you want to wait for your transcript to state that you have graduated. (Currently available for August graduates only). Previous degrees are already posted to the transcript, including May 2021 graduates. 

Degree posting requires a verification process that takes extra time after grades are posted to appear on a transcript. To check and see if your degree has been posted to your transcript - log onto My.NMU, go to the Student Services tab and go to the Unofficial Transcript link. When you request a transcript, you may request one of the following:

  • Send transcript now (immediately after order submission)
  • Send after grades posted (August 2021)
  • Send after degree is posted to transcript (Summer Graduates - August 2021)

Current Students can view their unofficial transcript at My.NMU.
