Transcripts

Effective February 22, 2021 - Due to the pandemic we have reduced in person services. We are open for pickup of previously ordered items ONLY.

What is a transcript?

A transcript is a copy of a student's permanent academic record at this University, duly certified by the Registrar and bearing the embossed seal of the University. A transcript is privileged information and is available only upon the written or online request and payment of the fee in effect at the time by the student.

Why would you order a transcript?

A transcript is required as one of the supporting documents for: applications to other universities and graduate schools; fellowship and scholarship applications; and is commonly required by prospective employers. The transcript is a record of a student's academic progress. If you are considering having your transcripts issued to you, check if this is acceptable to the other institution.  Your transcript will show as being issued to you.  You cannot return your transcripts to us to be redirected. 

Note that a transcript reflects the current status of a student's record at the time it is issued. Students should ensure that any changes to the transcript (e.g., from an INC to a final grade) are recorded before ordering a transcript. Courses will not appear on the transcript before the last day to add a course for that term. See the Western Calendar for official dates.

*A full course (1.0 units; running September to April) normally consists of three lecture hours each week. Each full course is equivalent to six semester hours or nine quarter hours. For a full explanation of courses suffixes, their corresponding weights and scheduling guidelines, see: Course Suffixes. *correction to transcripts printed after February 2020, the course number suffixes should read 'B 0.5 course in second term'.
