What is an Official Transcript?
An official transcript is the University's certified statement of your academic record. The official transcript is printed on security sensitive paper and contains the University seal and signature of the University Registrar. It lists courses completed and grades earned, and the semester in which they were received. The official transcript also contains notations of distinctions, majors, minors, options, and degrees received. Potential employers, graduate schools, and professional associations most typically request that the student authorizes release of an official transcript. For your protection, we will not release an official transcript without your signature. There is NO CHARGE for transcripts. You may request up to 5 transcripts per day and up to 50 transcripts per semester.
What is an Unofficial Transcript?
An Unofficial Transcript is a print out of all work completed at the university however unlike the the official it does NOT contain any security features, the University seal, or the signature of the University Registrar. Unofficial transcripts carry no significant endorsements from the University. Much like an advising transcript, this is printed on white paper. An unofficial transcript cannot be mailed, but when requested the university will fax unofficial transcripts. Unofficial transcripts can be obtained at anytime, via contacting the Registrar's Office and submitting a written request.
What is an Advising Transcript?
An advising transcripts is intended for academic advising, on-campus use. Currently enrolled students may obtain a copy of their advising transcript, without charge, by using myLeo, or by presenting a picture ID at the Registrar's Office. You will not be allowed to collect an advising transcript from MyLeo if you have "Holds"on your account. Advising transcripts contain the same information found on an official transcript, however the advising transcript is not certified by the Registrar's Office as a complete and accurate record of the University. The advising transcript is presented directly to the student, on plain white paper and may be duplicated.
The Registrar's Office will not mail advising transcripts to any third party regardless of permission from the student.
