Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are prepared by Registrar’s Office and have the University seal imprinted on them. These transcripts are typically accepted for any official transactions such as proof of degree(s), or applications for admissions to academic programmes or employment.

The degree title(s) and conferment date(s) will be reflected on the transcripts only when a student has been officially conferred. Please refer to the Graduation webpage for more information

You will receive a complimentary copy of the Official Transcript upon graduation.

For information on the Transcript Grade Legend, click here.

You may request for an official transcript at any time of the year.

Please note the following before you apply for a transcript:
  • Your academic transcript will be withheld if there is a “Hold” on your record. You can log in to myEduRec to check for any “Hold(s)” and contact the relevant Office to work out the necessary rectification.
  • Modules and grades of the current semester can only be reflected on the transcripts from the 20th calendar day from the day of results release (i.e. when the University has finalized all appeals for review of examination results).

    During this period, you may print the current semester’s results from myEduRec.
  • For all Semester 2 graduating students (i.e. you have completed all graduation requirements and will be conferred your degree on 30 June), no official transcripts will be issued from 18 to 30 June. The Online Transcript Application (OTA) portal will also not be made available during this period. This is to enable preparation for the Commencement ceremonies in July.

    To prove your graduating status during this period, you may generate the following documents from myEduRec:
  • As payments for successful applications are non-refundable, please ensure you require an official transcript before you apply.
  • Please apply for the official transcript via the Online Transcript Application (OTA) portal. Do note that the OTA portal is best viewed with Internet Explorer (IE) and if you are using the latest IE, you may need to add OTA to Compatibility View Settings to view (Tools > Compatibility View Settings > Add).

     

You will receive an auto-generated email to confirm receipt of your application regardless of successful or unsuccessful payment. Your application will only be processed if the payment is successful.

Please contact transcript@nus.edu.sg if you do not receive a response regarding the processing status of your transcript 3 working days after the application date.

Uncollected transcripts at the Student Service Centre will be destroyed 3 months from the date of application and you will need to make a new application.
