An academic transcript confirms your programme of study, the modules which have been taken, the total number of credits and grades achieved and the academic award and classification (where appropriate). Transcripts are printed on official transcript paper and are endorsed with the University of Stirling stamp.
We will aim to deal with a transcript request within 5 working days. However, during busy periods, this may take longer. Please note that only the person to whom the transcript relates can make a request.
If you would like your transcripts sent to an address out with the UK, you must also separately purchase the appropriate quantity of “Mailing Overseas for Confirmation Documents” below.
Current and Graduating Students
Students are issued with a final printed and pdf copy of their transcript without charge when they complete their period of study at the University, subject to fulfilling all academic and administrative requirements. The pdf copy will be emailed within 2 working days of the official academic award date. If you choose to attend the ceremony you will be presented with your documents at graduation or if you choose to graduate in absentia the transcript will be posted to you the week following graduation.
Your Academic History will detail the modules and grades currently held on your central record and this is how they would appear on a purchased academic transcript. Students due to receive an official academic award may wish to purchase a transcript after their award has been confirmed as this would not appear on the transcript before then.
With the exception of taught postgraduate programmes in information technology grades are not held centrally for taught postgraduate students who left University prior to September 2003. Therefore you should email email@example.com before purchasing your transcript online so that we check what module and grade information we still hold.
From June 2015, a transcript includes additional student activities and achievements. Should you prefer that any of your extra-curricular activities and achievements do not appear on your academic transcript, please complete this section of the questionnaire when purchasing.
TRANSCRIPTS FOR WORLD EDUCATION SERVICES (WES)
If you require your transcript to be posted to World Education Services (America or Canada) please ensure you immediately email your WES Academic Records Request form to firstname.lastname@example.org ensuring the subject of your email is entitled “WES Academic Request Form”. Please also ensure you include your transcript order number. Failure to comply with this will result in your online order being rejected.
