What is a transcript?
- A transcript is an educational document that shows the course work a student has taken, the grades earned, and a breakdown of various grade point averages (GPA). Transcripts are either “unofficial” or “official”. A transcript is not a diploma.
- Transcripts are often used by college admissions advisors and used for a variety of educational scholarship opportunities. They also provide valid proof of a student’s grade point average (GPA) for potential employment and for a possible “good student discount” for insurance companies.
- An unofficial transcript is a copy of the student’s transcript that is not signed, stamped or certified. It may include the word “unofficial” on it. This transcript is generally requested from a student or parent to review for accuracy or other personal reasons.
Unofficial transcripts may be downloaded from the PARENT PORTAL . Please contact the academic advisor or front office if you have misplaced your Verification code that was sent to you from CUSD.
