You can take between 12-17 credits at Notre Dame that can transfer back to your home institution. Credit transfer policies are specific to each student and their home institution. Thus, you should work with your major department and home institution prior to coming to Notre Dame to ensure that the credits you earned at ND will transfer back.
You can order your transcripts on the website of the Registrar at the end of each semester. You should do so before you leave campus. You may pick up your transcript in person once grades are published (if you are still in town) or choose to send it to your home or university address.
If you do not order your transcript before your departure, you will have to order through the "Former Student Transcript Request" form since your NDID and NetID will be deactivated. An additional fee will be charged to you, since you will no longer be an ND student.
NOTE: OUR OFFICE IS UNABLE TO REQUEST TRANSCRIPTS ON YOUR BEHALF!
