  • Comprehensive - Transcript will show all Ohio University coursework and all degrees

  • Undergraduate -  Transcript will only show Undergraduate coursework and all degrees

  • Graduate -  Transcript will only show Graduate coursework and all degrees

  • Medical -  Transcript will only show Medical coursework and all degrees

Note: Electronic transcripts are only available for students enrolled after Fall Quarter 1985-86. If an electronic transcript is ordered, the institution should receive the transcript by the end of the business day.

Ohio University transcripts are printed on security paper with the transcript key on the back, or are made available as secure electronic documents with a transcript key included.

Because all academic transcripts are official, an "unofficial transcript" cannot be ordered. Please note, if you have a hold on your account, preventing an "official transcript" from being sent, please contact the office issuing the hold. Please visit Bursar's Late Fees and Financial Holds for more information.
