How To Order A Transcript
Boston University follows the guidelines of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, which states that an official university transcript reflects all of the academic coursework completed at the institution.
Transcripts provide a comprehensive record of a student’s academic progress, including credit for courses that were transferred from other institutions, credit earned by examination, and degrees earned at Boston University. The grades for courses taken at other institutions are not listed on your Boston University transcript. In order to obtain this information, contact the institution that offered these courses. Both undergraduate and graduate records are included on a transcript. Transcripts cannot be separated to exclusively display either undergraduate or graduate work.
Official and Unofficial Transcripts
· Both official and unofficial transcripts contain all academic information about a student, such as classes and grades.
· Official transcripts include the signature of the School of Medicine Registrar and the Boston University seal. Official transcripts must be requested in writing and can be mailed to a designated destination.
· Unofficial transcripts carry the same student specific information as the official transcript but do not have the University seal or the Registrar’s signature.
How to Order a Transcript
Unofficial and Official transcripts must be requested in writing either by mail, in person or by fax.
