Transcripts from Other Universities in Student Files

Can the University forward transcripts from other institutions and/or test scores? (SATs, APs, etc.)

No. The information that is contained in your file is for University use only. The University does not forward that information to any other institution. If you need a transcript from another institution, or test scores, you have to request that information from the original providing institution.

Difference between Official and Unofficial Transcripts

What is the difference between official and unofficial transcripts?

Official transcripts bear the University seal, and are sent directly to institutions concerned. Students may also receive an official transcript in a sealed envelope to forward or hand deliver to another institution. When an official transcript is sent to a student, the envelope must remain unopened. Opening the envelope will invalidate the official transcript. Official transcripts are only for the use of the institution that they are sent to. Official transcripts cannot be forwarded to a third party. An unofficial transcript is used for informational purposes only.
