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 bears the signature of the Registrar.

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