LMU Offers Online Transcript Ordering with Electronic Transcripts

LMU has appointed Credentials Inc. as the designated agent for processing and sending official transcripts on behalf of LMU. Credentials Inc. has been granted the authority to deliver all transcript requests on behalf of LMU, and respond to inquiries regarding the transactions. The PDF transcript that is produced using this service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company's website that is provided during the delivery process. All of the actual transcript records are maintained by LMU. In requests for paper hard-copy transcripts, the University produces your transcript and delivers it per the instructions you provide in the ordering process.

TranscriptsPlus is the name of the ordering and processing system owned by Credentials Inc.


TranscriptsPlus requires that each requestor be authenticated before processing a request. Signing in through PROWL authenticates the student. Those who cannot authenticate through PROWL choose the TranscriptsPlus direct link which uses an electronic signature authentication.

Order a Transcript

  1. All transcripts must be ordered through TranscriptsPlus.
  2. Before ordering, please verify that all grades have been posted. If you are a recent graduate, verify that your degree has been awarded. 
  3. For grade changes and repeated courses, please verify in PROWL that your record reflects your updated requests before ordering your transcript online.
  4. When ordering a transcript, please make sure and request the correct transcript (career) type. You may have up to three careers at LMU: Undergraduate, Graduate, and Extension/Continuing Education. Each type must be selected and sent separately; if you choose a transcript type for which you have no records, this will cause a delay in processing.
  5. PDF (electronic) transcripts are only available through TranscriptsPlus.
  6. Choose the correct login below: PROWL or TranscriptsPlus.

LMU is unable to assist in the ordering or status of an order placed.

TranscriptsPlus does not charge your credit card at the time you place your order. Instead, they validate your card information and "pre-authorize" the amount that will be charged to your card when your order is completed. If your order is cancelled (or a financial hold prevents the issuance) before it is completed, there will not be any charge to your credit card.



Check the status of your order - Cancel incomplete orders - Obtain an authorization form
Upload a scanned authorization form - Request a copy of your order receipt - Review the recipient(s) on your order

    The Common App Transfer Form requires prior verification from the Office of the Registrar.

    1. Complete the form as required and submit to the Office of the Registrar for verification.
    2. The form will be returned to you to attach to your transcript request

    NOTE: A submitted without prior verification will cause a manual review in the processing of your request. This increases the amount of time it will take to print the transcript.

    Other documents such as resumes, letters of recommendation, transcripts from other universities, birth certificates, etc., cannot be sent with your transcript. If attached, this increases the amount of time it will take to print the transcript.

    For the list of application services (below), TranscriptsPlus will automatically generate the application service's cover page attachment when a student orders a transcript from an institution that utilizes eRoboMail. Students can now expedite the processing of their order by entering their application service ID and transcript number during transcript order entry and completely eliminate the need for faxing or uploading an attachment to complete their order.
