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.

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

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

However, before you apply, please take note of the following:
  • 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.
  • Courses and grades of the current semester can only be reflected on the transcripts from the 11th calendar day after the day of results release.

    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 21 to 30 June as the system is closed for graduation processing.

    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.
