What is an official transcript?

An official transcript is your certified academic record.  An official transcript displays the terms you attended, graded courses, academic programs, and other relevant academic information. 

Current students, former students (include study abroad) and alumni can place an order for an official paper transcript or an electronic transcript (eTranscript).

Unofficial transcript: Office of the University Registrar does not provide copies of unofficial transcripts. Unofficial transcripts are available for review in Self-Service Banner for current students and alumni.

Transcript key explaining the grading system is available for download.
