1 • No. The University Archives is often mistakenly contacted for enrollment and registration information, especially concerning transcripts and diploma replacement. Please contact the UMC Registrar's Office (Enrollment Services/Registration) for such information requests. Beyond regular UMC transcripts, the Registrar's Office also has Laboratory School transcripts as well as Distance Education transcripts before 1980.
Please use the contacts listed below:

2 • Due to staff and resource limitations, the Archives' staff cannot conduct extensive research for patrons. Staff is often limited to an hour or two of searching for one particular patron. There is an option to hire UMC students at an hourly rate to conduct research for you.
Please contact the staff for more details:

3 • The Archives has thousands of photographs and negatives in its holdings, so only a very small amount have been scanned and digitized. What you found from the website is merely a description of the holdings; the image itself is not available online.
Contact a staff member concerning the image you are interested in:
