Unofficial Records

Student academic records are classified as confidential and may be released only to the student with student’s written authorization and signature, in accordance with the Public Information Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

Students with financial bars may receive only an unofficial transcript, not an official transcript. You can check your bar status through What I Owe if you have a UT EID. For more information on clearing financial bars, see Paying Your Tuition or call Student Accounts Receivable at 512-475-7777.

Academic Summary

An academic summary is a free printout on plain paper released only to you, the student, from the Office of the Registrar. It is not a transcript. It lists your major and all of your coursework by department, and it includes both lower and upper division GPA by field of study (except for the School of Law), as well as date degree expected.

To request an academic summary, stop by the Office of the Registrar in the Main Building between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. You must present a valid photo ID for records release.

Unofficial Transcript

An unofficial transcript is a comprehensive record of your academic progress, including transfer courses, credit earned by exam and earned degrees. It does not include the university seal or signature of the registrar. Your name appears on your unofficial UT transcript as it appears on your university record. The cost is $20 per copy.

Unofficial transcripts are released only to the student requesting them; they cannot be released to a third party. Non-barred students requesting unofficial transcripts will receive official transcripts Issued to Student and not sealed in official envelopes.

Unofficial Previous School Transcript

You may order unofficial copies of your transcripts from other schools if they were submitted to the university and remain on file. The cost is $20 per copy, payable at time of request, and available for immediate pickup or can be mailed out to you the next business day. Previous school transcripts are released only to the student requesting them; they cannot be released to a third party.

How to Order Unofficial Academic Records

Unofficial transcripts ONLY for barred students cost $20 per unofficial transcript; they print on demand, available for pickup immediately when you order inside the Office of the Registrar. Written requests received by mail, fax or email will be mailed directly to the student by standard U.S. mail within five business days. Processing time may be longer during peak times, particularly at the end of semesters.

Non-barred students requesting unofficial transcript will receive official transcript Issued to Student and are subject to five business days of processing time.

Order in Person

Come to the registrar’s office on the ground floor of the Main Building (MAI), Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. You must present a UT ID card, valid state-issued ID or driver’s license, current passport, or military ID. Cost is $20 per transcript. If mailing, you must provide your full mailing address; unofficial transcripts cannot be sent to third parties.

Order by Proxy

You may authorize a third party to order or pick up your unofficial transcript by using our proxy authorization form. Requesting unofficial transcripts using an authorized proxy cannot be ordered online. Proxy must present the proxy’s own valid student photo ID, state-issued ID or driver’s license, current passport, or military ID for transcript release. Note: Information provided on proxy form will be followed exactly; changes after form is submitted will require a new form.
