Transcript Information

It is important to see if the scholarship or college/trade school/university you are applying for is requesting an official or unofficial copy of your transcript.

 

An unofficial transcript is a current transcript showing what classes you have taken up to the moment of the request for the transcript.

 

An official transcript is a signed and stamped document officially stating completion of all high school or college requirements. It is highly recommended to request for multiple copies. (10 or more).
