Transcript Request

Multnomah University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide our online transcript ordering system. The instructions that follow will enable you to request your transcript online.

  • You can order transcripts using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. There is a $4.25 charge for each electronic transcript requested and a $6.25 charge for transcripts delivered via mail or held for pick-up.
  • National Student Clearinghouse will provide instructions for placing your order including delivery options and fees. You can order as many transcripts as you like in a single session. A processing fee will be charged per recipient.
  • Updates to your order will be emailed to you, and you can track your order online.
  • Transcript requests will be processed within 2-4 business days. There is an additional $10.25 charge for priority requests, which are processed within 1 business day of receipt.
  • Transcript orders may be held upon request until the current term’s grades or degree is posted. Transcripts held for these reasons will not be sent until grades and/or degrees are posted for the term.
  • Transcripts will not be processed on behalf of students who have any financial obligation or other holds at Multnomah. If you have a financial hold on your account, please contact Student Accounts at (503) 251-5345 to clear it before ordering.
  • Initiate transcript requests by selecting Order Online.
  • As part of the ordering process, you will be asked to submit your signature. You will need to print, sign, and return a consent form.

Verification of Enrollment and Degree

Multnomah University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verification. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted at:

Web: www.degreeverify.org
Mail: National Student Clearinghouse, 2300 Dulles Station Boulevard, Suite 300, Herndon, VA 20171

Students may generate an enrollment or degree verification 24/7 by logging into Self-Service. From the grades tab, select enrollment verification, and you will be redirected to the National Student Clearinghouse Self-Service Site. If you are unable to access the necessary documentation, please contact the Registrar’s office.


Priority registration occurs for current students in November for the spring term, in March for the summer term, and in April for the fall term.

After a student has been accepted, he or she will receive information in the mail and via email regarding orientation and registration.

Fall students will receive an email in June that includes information about how to create an account and register for classes.

Students returning to Multnomah after an interruption should refer to our re-enrollment page.

Students are encouraged to register online utilizing Self-Service. Students may come to the Office of the Registrar to register if they prefer or need assistance with the registration process.

Steps to Register

Plan your schedule for next semester. Consult your faculty advisor and/or Academic Plan (in Self-Service) if you need assistance.

Access and log-in to Self-Service. You already should have a login ID and password which gives access to the system. If you can’t remember your password, contact the Office of the Registrar or IT to set a new password. If you have never logged on to Self-Service, select Request Access from the menu. The student ID number is the nine-digit number on your student ID card. Do not enter the ‘P’. An error message may occur if you did not supply us with your social security number and birth date when you applied.

Contact the Office of the Registrar if you are unable to complete this process. registrar@msdnaacr.net or (503) 251-5370.

Now select Online Registration, then select Course Search. If you type the first letter of the course designator (e.g. B for Bib101 or T for TH 507), the computer will return a list of courses from which to make your selection. Add the courses you want to your shopping cart by clicking on the Add to Cart icon. Select all the classes from that course designation before going on to another selection.

After each course selection, go to New Search at the bottom of the screen to choose your next class.

Once you have selected your courses and added them to your registration shopping cart, you must register for them. Do this by clicking on Back to Registration, marking the checkbox for each course, then selecting Process. If all goes well, you will have completed registration and you can print out the page showing your schedule.

Logout when you are done.

If you get an error message when you are registering your courses, first correct the problem, then re-register your courses by again marking the checkbox and selecting “Process”. The online system checks for time conflicts, pre-requisites, and co-requisites. If you believe the system is in error by not allowing you to enroll in a course, please register for all your other courses and then talk with the Registrar.

Course Audit

Auditing a course means you can take classes, but you will not be graded or given credit. You will not receive a transcript or academic credit that could be transferred or counted towards a degree at Multnomah. Submit this PDF to request to audit a course.

Requests to audit courses are reviewed and approved by the Office of the Registrar: registrar@msdnaacr.net or (503) 251-5370.
