Requesting official transcripts

An official transcript is a complete academic record bearing the University seal and signature of the Registrar.

Your process for requesting official transcripts depends on whether you are a current or former student. Please note that requests cannot be made by email.

Current students

Current students must use the online request form, accessible in your Student Centre. See instructions for requesting official transcripts. (Mobile | Laptop)

You will be able to select your preferred method of delivery. Please see the table below for cost and delivery details.

If you encounter any issues while completing your transcript request online, try disabling your browser’s pop-up blockers and/or use a different browser. (Firefox | Chrome)


Alumni who attended after 1980 can request official transcripts online.

If it has been more than a year since you last accessed your Student Centre, you will need to re-activate your Netname before submitting your request. Even if you remember your Netname and password, you will not be able to log in until you re-activate it.

Reactivating your Netname

  • To reactivate your Netname, call 514-848-2424 ext. 7613, or email
  • As of January 2015, all 7-digit student ID numbers were changed to 8 digits. As such, former students must add the number 2 to the start of their original student ID number (ex. 21234567) when submitting requests.

See instructions for accessing your Student Centre. (Mobile | Laptop)
