Transcript Request

A transcript is an official summary of a student’s academic performance. Transcripts of courses taken and degrees received at The University of the West Indies are maintained by the Examinations Section, Office of the Campus Registrar. Official transcripts show the entire record of all courses taken, at both undergraduate and graduate levels. Undergraduate and graduate transcript records print separately, but are issued and sent together as one transcript for students who are pursuing/pursued programmes at both levels. Please note however, that a request may be made to include only the undergraduate or the graduate programme. Courses are displayed chronologically within each programme pursued. Your name appears on your transcript as it appears on your University record. Official transcripts include the University seal and the signature of the Assistant Registrar, Examinations. Electronic copies of transcripts are available, however, this process is done from Institution to Institution.
