FAQ

There are two ways to tell if your class is online.

  1. Look at the location on your schedule. If it is Web Based, it means your class meets online at the times and dates listed. If it lists MISU Blackboard, it is completely online and you need to follow the deadlines to submit work; however, there is not normally a specific time or day you need to meet with the rest of your class.
  2. The mode of instruction lists Online Synchronous (location will be Web Based) or Online Asynchronous (location is MISU Blackboard).

You will be able to see on the class syllabus or in class notes if the course is available only in-person or remotely part of the time or for the entire semester.

  • Transcripts are mailed general USPS unless the FedEx option is chosen.
  • Transcript requests cannot be accepted over the phone.
  • Photo ID is required to pick up transcripts.
  • Former MSU-Bottineau students should contact Dakota College at Bottineau directly with transcript orders.

  • Faxed transcripts are unofficial. Verify the type of transcript needed before requesting a copy to be faxed.
  • Current and former students with online Campus Connection access may view and print an unofficial transcript free of charge through Campus Connection (Academic Records>View Unofficial Transcript).
    • NOTE: Unofficial transcripts are only available online for students who were enrolled at MSU Fall 2005 or later.

For more information, go to MSU's Transcript Requests page and see "Delivery and Payment Options" for expedited shipping or processing information.

Transcript Resend Policy: A student will be allowed one transcript resend to a company/school address as indicated on the initial transcript request with an address verification. The resend request will only be granted within 2-4 weeks of the initial request if it has not been received by the company/school. If a student wants the resend to occur prior to the 2-4 week waiting period, they must pay a $8.00 service charge for the official transcript to be sent.

Resends will not be processed after modifications to the official transcript have been made (i.e. grade postings, degree postings or grade changes) and cannot be resent to a personal address. If the transcript is going to a different address, it will be considered a new request and the student will have to pay the $8.00 service charge for official transcripts.

Please be aware that most institutions require the transcript to arrive in our unopened University envelopes. If you open the sealed envelope, you will need to place a new order (including payment).
