Transcript - Unofficial

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

Your name appears on your unofficial UT transcript as it appears on your university record.

Student academic records are classified as confidential and may be released only to the student with student's written authorization and signature, in accordance with the Public Information Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

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