Transcript - Official

An official transcript is a comprehensive record of your academic progress, including transfer courses, credit earned by exam, and earned degrees.

Your name appears on your official transcript as it appears on your university record. Official transcripts include the university seal and signature of the registrar.

Student academic records are classified as confidential and may be released only with the student's written authorization and signature, in accordance with the Public Information Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974. Beginning in September 1999, transcripts sent to other Texas schools include TSI and core curriculum information if available.

Official transcripts are not issued for students with financial bars. You can check your bar status through What I Owe, if you have an UT EID. For more information on clearing financial bars, see How to Pay or call Student Accounts Receivable at (512) 475-7777.
