Important message from the Records & Registration Office

Due to the ongoing public health situation, some changes have taken place to Fall registration, transcripts ordering, and office procedures:

  1. Registration for Fall 2020 will be closed for longer than normal so that departments can adjust their Fall schedules to fit into the new social distancing and health safety guidelines. Students will be able to adjust their schedules and continue registering starting July 27th. Non-degree seeking special students will be able to start registering August 10th.
  2. Most staff in the Records and Registration Office are working remotely during normal business hours. Please contact us using our email at records@uwlax.edu. If you do call our number and no one answers, please leave a message and your call will be returned either by email or phone as soon as possible.
  3. In addition, we cannot take transcript requests in person. Please order electronically. Current students may use the Official Transcript link in their WINGS Student Center. Former students may use the "Order a Transcript Now" link on our Transcript page. The link to the Transcript page is below this message. 
  4. There may be a delay in processing the transcript requests for students who attended UWL prior to 1991, transcript requests sent in the mail, or requests for transcripts to be sent through regular postal mail. If the health situation requires our minimal office staff to return to working from home, the delay could add 1-2 weeks of processing time.
