The University of Alabama official transcript is a complete record of a student’s enrollment at UA, including all undergraduate, graduate, and professional courses. Partial transcripts are not available. Unofficial transcripts are only available to currently enrolled students through myBama. The Office of the University Registrar does not issue unofficial transcripts. Additionally, The University of Alabama will not provide customers with copies of another institution’s transcript that we may have in our possession. The one exception to this policy is international student requests. Requests in this category will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Transcript requests for records from fall semester 1983 to present are electronic records which will be processed immediately and mailed within two business days. Records prior to fall 1983 are hard copy records, cannot be processed immediately and will be mailed within five business days.

The University of Alabama transcript represents an extract of the student’s record which reflects his or her academic performance at the institution based on common University criteria applied across the University for all students. As a result, the University of Alabama limits recognition on its transcript to Latin Honors, University Honors programs, and the Dean’s List.

We do not include membership in honorary organizations, departmental/college honors or awards, scholarships/fellowships, or other academic/non-academic distinctions or awards on the transcript.
