Transcripts are the full academic record of your studies, validated by an official University signature and seal. They will show which papers were taken and the numerical marks or alphabetical grades for each paper. All attempts at examinations will be shown whether passed, failed or referred. Registration dates will be indicated (where known), as well as the classification and date of award (where appropriate).
Some of the University records are incomplete and may not show the full range of options offered, or grades obtained in individual papers. Where you have passed certain papers of a qualification, but failed to qualify for an award, it may not always be possible to specify these papers on your transcript. Records for the BSc Special degrees and those taken under Special Relation may be incomplete. A full a transcript as possible will always be provided.
When you submit a Graduation Document Enquiry we will investigate whether we can provide your documents. However, note that we cannot provide transcripts for MSc or MA awards prior to 1988. We are also unable to provide transcripts for research-based qualifications such as PhD’s or MPhil awards. If you apply for a Letters of Certification for a research-based qualification it will stipulate that no transcript is available.
Transcripts extracted from diploma supplements:
If you graduated from University of London's Distance Learning programme from 2007 onwards you will have automatically received a Diploma Supplement with your Certificate. This includes details of the award itself as well as the information that would be indicated on a transcript. If you subsequently apply for a transcript via this service, you will receive a copy of the relevant pages from your Diploma Supplement, bearing the signature and seal of the Vice-Chancellor of the University of London.
Partial transcripts are records of examinations taken to date. If you are currently studying for a qualification, or did not complete an award, and require a partial transcript then the transcript fee is still payable. If you later require subsequent transcripts showing further exams then a new application and fee is required.
If you are due to sit examinations this summer it may take up to three months from the date of award for your official Graduation Documents to be issued. In the meantime you may apply for a transcript via this service, although a complete transcript is unlikely to be issued until at least two working weeks after the examination results have been confirmed. If you are submitting a Graduation Document Application in these circumstances, please indicate clearly on your application form if you require partial or complete transcripts, or both. If you require both, you will need to pay two application fees.
