What is a Transcript?

A transcript is a complete record of your academic history. It lists classes you have taken, grades received and other information relating to your academic career including all current registrations. Official transcripts are printed on security paper and bear the signature of the Registrar.

Student records are confidential and transcripts are issued only upon the written request of the student.

Note: Transcripts will NOT be issued until financial obligations to the University have been cleared.
