Do you need a transcript, proof of studies, or copy of your diploma? Here's what you need to know.

  • Normally, only you, the student, can request copies of your official documents or come and pick them up at InfoService after ordering them online. However, you can authorize a third party to obtain copies of your documents by filling out the Third-Party Authorization Form to Release Student Information (PDF).
  • Official documents are only issued to students in good financial standing at the University of Ottawa.

In accordance with PCI Security Standards Council policy, the University of Ottawa can no longer accept any official document requests by email as credit card numbers cannot be sent through this medium. Requests can be made through uoZone, in person, by fax or by regular mail.

I want a transcript

Official transcript

Information Icon

An official transcript is printed on special paper, with the University of Ottawa seal and the associate registrar's signature. It contains the complete record of all courses in which you were enrolled 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 units 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 and the number of students registered appear on the transcript.

The University does not issue partial transcripts.
