Ordering Academic Information on Deceased Students
The Office of the University Registrar will evaluate each request for the release of a transcript or other academic records of a deceased student on the individual merits of that request. The University of Nebraska-Lincoln reserves the right to deny the request in whole or to release only part of the academic records that are requested. The decision will be based on what is deemed to be in the best interest of UNL.
