Official transcripts

Message icon

An official transcript is printed on special paper, with the University of Ottawa seal and the registrar's signature. It contains the complete record of all courses in which you were registered and the results you obtained, as well as any degrees, diplomas or certificates you received.

The transcript includes your name, student number, basis of admission, advanced standing (without grades), program of study and faculty, number of credits per course, some scholarships, and special mentions.

Transcripts issued to students or to authorized third parties representing students are marked "Issued to the Student." You can request that your transcript be sent to a third party (for example, an employer) or to another university. Your transcript is then printed on security paper, sealed in a secure envelope and mailed directly to the third party.

Course titles appear in the language the course was given. The University does not translate transcripts.

When at least six students are registered for a course, the group average (at the undergraduate level only) and the number of students registered appear on the transcript.

The University does not issue partial transcripts.
