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.

The Office of the Registrar does not fax or scan transcripts and academic summaries into a digital format under any circumstances. Unofficial records cannot be sealed in an envelope or sent directly to third parties.

Transcripts are sent when payment is processed.

Academic Summary

An academic summary is a course list that is printed on plain white paper and issued as an unofficial document and is free of charge. 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. It is not a transcript. It will not have the university name printed on it, and it will not confirm degrees. An academic summary can only be picked up from our office in person or by proxy. An academic summary will not be emailed, faxed or mailed. If you were last enrolled prior to Fall 1979 or if you only took dual credit/extension/correspondence courses, we may not have an academic summary for you.

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 UT Transcript

An unofficial UT 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 UT transcripts are released only to the student requesting them; they cannot be released to a third party. They are only issued to current or former students with a financial bar. If you do not have a financial bar, an official transcript is available to you. You may request an official transcript, instead, for the same price. Copying or scanning an official transcript will render it unofficial.

Unofficial Previous School Transcript

Previous school transcripts are transcripts that were submitted to this university for admission purposes or to claim credit for coursework taken elsewhere. You may order unofficial copies of your transcripts from other schools if they were submitted to the university and remain on file in a PDF format. The transcripts may have staff notations and markings on it. 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 or their proxy; they cannot be released to a third party.
