Resources for Alumni
Grand View's greatest strength lies in its people. Even if you haven’t been in touch since graduation, it’s easy to reconnect. Former Vikings are strategic partners in our continued success at Grand View University.
Did you know Grand View's services don't end when you leave campus? As alumni, you have access to many points of connection. This section will help you to explore the valuable resources available to you.

|To request transcripts, go to www.getmytranscript.org and place your order through the National Student Clearing house. It is fairly simple, just follow the step by step prompts.
Grand View downloads all requests and will have them processed within 1-2 business days. Grand View does not offer unofficial transcripts but we are happy to scan and email a copy of your official transcript before it is mailed out with an email request. Additional questions can be sent to registrar @ grandview.edu and a staff member from the Registrar’s Office will respond.
Grand View invites people who are 65 and older to audit classes without charge.
The policy for senior citizen students (persons aged 65 years or over on the first day of the class) is divided into two categories of students: degree seeking students and students who are not degree seeking.
Degree-seeking senior citizen students follow the same policies and processes as any other degree seeking student including payment of all regular tuition and fees. They are required to meet admission requirements, apply for Federal and State financial aid, and meet with an advisor to register after they have been admitted.
Senior citizens who are not degree-seeking are eligible to register for undergraduate classes at a discounted rate, equal to the fee assessed for audited courses (see fee schedule published by the Business Office each year) if they plan to earn credit for the course. To audit the course (attend the course without earning credit for it), the student must declare at the time they register that they do not wish to take the course(s) for credit, and they may attend at no charge. This standing cannot be changed at a later time. To receive this benefit, students must submit proof of age and a completed request form at the Registrar’s Office.
Those interested in auditing classes can contact the Registrar’s office at registrar @ grandview.edu to register.
The schedule of classes this fall can be found here.
