Unfortunately UO uses a different electronic transcript system than LSAC, so it is necessary to request paper transcripts from UO in a way that will ensure LSAC’s Transcript Request Form is included with the transcript UO sends to LSAC.
To request your UO transcripts in a way that ensures your LSAC Transcript Request Form is included with your transcript, please follow these instructions:
- In your Student Menu on Duckweb, select Grades and Transcripts Menu.
- Select Request Official Transcript.
- Ensure current contact information and attendance information, etc. is accurate.
- Under “Where to Deliver Your Request” select “Send to Professional Society / Organization” and hit the Select & Continue button.
- In the box next to “Enter Professional Society” type “Law School Admission Council” and hit the Continue button.
- Fill in the Professional Society information using the LSAC address information found in the letterhead of your transcript request form. (Instructions for accessing your transcript request form can be found here.)
- Review and verify your transcript request by following the on-screen instructions.
- Print out the Transcript Request Form, sign it, and either bring it in person to the Registrar’s Office (Oregon Hall, 4th floor) or email it to email@example.com with a request for the Registrar’s Office to include the form with the transcript they send to LSAC. This visit should take place or email should be sent within a half an hour of requesting the transcript on Duckweb.
If you have any questions about the transcript request process for law school, please feel free to contact UO’s Office of the Registrar at 541-346-2935 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
