FAQs and Ordering HELP
• What does Handling Type "Sealed" or "Unsealed" or Signature on back of envelope mean?
Sealed and signature on back of envelope mean the same thing. You may want to request this if you are having your paper transcript mailed to you then sending on to another address. We stamp the back of the envelope with our Registrar signature. If you open the envelope the signature is voided, and the transcript may no longer be considered official if you send it on to another address. As long as the signature on the flap has not been tampered with then the transcript can be considered official. Official transcripts from the University of Iowa are not sent in a signature stamped envelope unless so requested. You do not need to request this option for electronic transcripts or for transcript mailed directly from us to your recipient.

Partial = only the part of your Academic record you choose will be produced and sent ( we can only separate by colleges not by courses.
