Transcript Ordering Options
Many institutions are temporarily accepting digital transcripts that are received directly from another institution's administrative account through secure transmission. Please select “Digital” in the “C. Mailing Instructions” section of the Official Transcript Request Form if you would like the transcript to be sent to another institution. If it is a Canadian college or university, we will verify whether that institution is accepting digital transcripts. For any other institution (e.g., international), it is the student's responsibility to verify that the recipient institution is accepting digital transcripts and to provide the correct email address. You can also have a digital transcript emailed to a University of Guelph or Guelph-Humber email address. It cannot be emailed to an external address (Gmail, Hotmail, Yahoo, etc.).
Please note that the University of Guelph's digital transcript is a text-only document without official branding. It may not be accepted as an official transcript by some institutions or third parties. If you require a transcript with branding, you should order a mailed paper copy using the Official Transcript Request Form. If you are applying to another Ontario institution, you may wish to request that your transcript be sent electronically through OUAC or OCAS.
A transcript is an official document prepared by the Office of Registrarial Services recording a student's courses, grades, and degree designation. Students must have met all financial obligations to the University of Guelph before official transcripts can be released for any purpose.
Transcripts obtained using the Transcript portion of WebAdvisor for students are Unofficial Transcripts and may not be suitable for purposes such as employment applications or applications to graduate school. Official transcripts from the University of Guelph will show that a degree has been conferred only after the convocation ceremony.
Notice to Graduates
It is your responsibility to check your transcript carefully to verify the accuracy of your academic record and to ensure that there are no errors or omissions. Before contacting the University of Guelph to request an amendment to your transcript please review the following list of common queries.
- For privacy reasons, student DOB will reflect only the month and day (MM/DD), not the year of birth.
- The courses listed on your transcript may reflect a truncated version of the title listed in the calendar. As such, words may be shortened, brackets missing and lowercase letters used to accommodate character spacing. The University of Guelph is not able to amend these items on your transcript.
- Courses are listed alphabetically by subject area.
- Grade discrepancies must be addressed through the appropriate department and/or instructor in charge of the course.
- For questions or concerns related to Co-operative Work Terms, contact Co-operative Education & Career Services.
- Credit weight and Lab hours can be verified by checking the current academic calendar.
- Graduate students may direct inquiries, including errors and/or omissions in thesis titles to: firstname.lastname@example.org
For all other inquiries, please email email@example.com and attach a copy of your unofficial transcript indicating the items in question. Failure to notify the University of Guelph within 60 days of your graduation date constitutes agreement on your part that the record is accurate.
*** Please note that access to your U of G WebAdvisor account and your unofficial transcript displayed there will expire twelve months after graduation. ***
