Transcripts

This section provides information on Unofficial Transcripts and Official Transcripts.

Unofficial Transcripts

In most cases, when an employer asks for a transcript, an unofficial one will do. An unofficial transcript simply provides a list of the coursework, grades, credit hours, and overall GPA for the employer and does not contain the University's official seal like an official transcript does.

To obtain a copy of your unofficial transcript first complete a Transcript Release by following the link below. OCPD will keep your Transcript Release on file and your unofficial transcript will be uploaded to Symplicity. Transcripts will be uploaded to Symplicity at the end of each semester.

Official Transcripts

Students and alumni should know how to order official transcripts from all secondary educational institutions (undergraduate, graduate, or others attended for credit). An employer, especially judges, may ask for official transcripts as part of the application process. Contact the other institutions you have attended for information on how to obtain official transcripts.

An official UW transcript must be ordered from the UW Registrar's Office, located at 333 East Campus Mall #10101, Madison, WI 53715-1384 (608-262-3811). The Registrar's website for ordering transcripts is: http://ordertranscript.wisc.edu/.
