What Are They?

Official transcripts are comprehensive records of your academic coursework and progress at the University of Colorado that reflect earned degrees as well as credits accepted in transfer or by exam.

Unofficial transcripts contains the same information as official transcripts, but:

  • Lack the authenticity features typically required by academic institutions and potential employers
  • Include your academic probation information for advising purposes, if applicable
  • Display your preferred name (official transcripts display your legal name)
