College Transcripts : What to consider while sending your transcripts to colleges

Do you need a copy of your transcript in order to apply to college, find a job, or for your own personal use, but aren’t sure how to get one? This article will explain why you need a high school transcript and how you can get yours, even if you are no longer a high school student.

Transcript is a record of all your academic accomplishments in college. It lists every class you took, when you took them, and the grades you received. Every student who attended college has a transcript, and if you attended more than one college, you will have a transcript from each college

You generally need  a transcript for three reasons:

  1. To apply to college:Most Universities require an official copy of your college transcript when you apply.
  2. To graduate or transfer colleges: Colleges will look at your transcript in order to make sure you have met all your graduation requirements or to determine which classes you should enroll in if you transferred colleges.
  3. To apply for some jobs:When applying for a job, you may be required to submit your college transcript so the employer can look at your grades or see if you have taken certain courses applicable to the job.

Do You Want an Official or Unofficial Copy of Your Transcript?

There are two versions of your college transcript: official and unofficial. Both versions contain the same information and will look the same or nearly identical, but an official transcript often includes an official seal or tamper-proof marks or is enclosed in a sealed envelope. This ensures no information on the transcript is altered.

Most universities want an official version of your college transcript. Official versions are often sent directly by your colleges, either through snail mail or as an e-mail. Your college may also give you an official version of your transcript inside a sealed envelope for you to send yourself. If they do, do not open this envelope, it will make the transcript no longer official. If you just want a copy of your transcript for your own personal use, an unofficial version is fine.

How to Get Your College Transcript?

Picking up a copy in person from your college’s office

If this is the case, stop by the office and tell them you’d like a copy of your transcript. You may need to bring an ID or know your student identification number in order to get your transcript. In general, unofficial versions of your transcript can be printed off very quickly, sometimes right then, but receiving or sending official versions may take a few days longer.

Requesting a copy online

If your college has this, there will often be a page on their website where you can request a transcript. It may allow you to print off an unofficial copy for yourself and/or request for an official copy to be sent on your behalf.

Using a third party site

Most colleges will give you a copy of your transcript directly if you are a current student, but there are some that outsource to a third party. Itranscripts helps you get your transcripts from various universities.
