Duquesne University offices will be closed for the holidays beginning Wednesday, December 24, 2014 through Sunday, January 4, 2015. All transcript requests* and enrollment verification requests* received by 11:00am on Tuesday, December 23 will be processed the same day. All requests received after 11:00am will be processed when University offices re-open on January 5th. The last express mail shipment of 2014 will be sent from our office on Tuesday, December 23 at 11:00am. The first express mail shipment of 2015 will be sent on Monday, January 5, 2015.

When we re-open on Monday, January 5, 2015, the processing of requests will resume. We will have a large volume of requests to sort and process, so we ask for your patience as we fill the requests. Please avoid calling the office on Monday, January 5, if possible, so that we can fulfill the requests as quickly as possible. Processing time will be extended to 2-4 business days during the first week of the year.

Degree verification is handled online at www.degreeverify.org year-round. Transcript requests for current students can also be submitted through DORI and Self-Service Banner. Former students can fax transcript requests to our office in our absence.

Thank you for your cooperation, and enjoy the holidays.

*Requests will be completed provided that the student transcript data resides in our student system and not just as hard-copy. Other provisions include the receipt of signed requests and that there are no issues involved that would prohibit timely processing.
