Definition: A transcript is an official copy of a student's academic record. Every course and experience for which you have earned academic credit is listed. All courses are listed as well as courses that you have withdrawn from after the registration or withdrawal deadline has passed. Every graduate program requires that your official transcript be submitted. An official transcript is one that arrives directly from your undergraduate institution and stamped with the institution's seal.
