PLEASE NOTE: The Registrar's Office is unable to produce transcripts at this time. NDU's Student Information System has been down for several months and we do not yet have a definitive resolution date. Individuals have been experiencing lengthy delays with their requests and this will continue until our system is returned to service. Thank you for your patience and understanding, and please continue to check this website for updates. You may still request a transcript  by filling out the Transcript Request Form and mailing or faxing the request to the University Registrar’s Office.
