The Family Education Right and Privacy Act of 1974 prohibits the release of information recorded on transcripts to a third party without the student’s written or authenticated electronic consent.

Definition of an Official Transcript

An official transcript is one that has been received from a secure authenticated designated party or issuing institution.  It must bear an institutional validation (such as seal, logo, or watermark), date, and appropriate signature. Transcripts received that do not meet these requirements should not be considered official.  This definition of an official transcript has been endorsed by the Michigan Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers.

Accreditation

The three campuses of the University of Michigan are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the regional accrediting organization approved by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), for degree-granting institutions in the state of Michigan. Many of the departments and programs within the University are also accredited by various agencies.  Detailed information about these agencies and the accreditation process is available from the Dean’s office of each academic unit.
