What is an academic transcript?
With thanks to the Open University for the definition!
An academic transcript from a university can also be referred to as an academic record, a diploma supplement, a statement of learning, a record of achievement or something else similar. It should list all the modules or subjects you studied in each year, the marks or grades you achieved for each module and the credit value and level of each module. It should be stamped or signed by the registry of your previous institution and be on official letter-headed paper. If you do not have an academic transcript you will need to contact your previous institution to request one.
A transcript from a professional body will list all the units completed, grades achieved and confirmation of any exemptions. It should be stamped or signed by your previous institution and be on official letter-headed paper.
Transcript processing can take a significant amount of time, from capturing data, to processing and sharing transcripts among departments across campus. If you think transcript software could make a positive difference, but assume transcripts are too varied and too unique to be understood by today’s technology, think again.
