The academic transcript is a student’s complete and permanent academic record and reflects all work completed at NUS.
There are 2 types of transcripts available to students and graduates:
Official transcripts are prepared by Registrar’s Office and have the University seal imprinted on it. 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 RO’s commencement website for more information on graduation matters.
Unofficial transcripts do not have the University seal and are not generally accepted for official transcripts. Unofficial transcripts can be printed from myEduRec.
More information about your transcripts can be found at RO's website.
Applying for Official Transcripts
Requests for transcripts may be made at any time of the year. However, 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).
Important Note – to all Semester 2 graduating students
(i.e. you have completed all graduation requirements but have not been officially conferred)
In preparation for the Commencement ceremonies, graduating students who will be conferred their degree(s) on 30 June (i.e. current students who are graduating at the end of Semester 2) will not be issued their official transcripts from 18 to 30 June. The Online Transcript Application system will also not be made available for graduating students from 18 to 30 June.
You may generate your own Student Status Letter, as proof of your graduating status from myEduRec during the above-mentioned transcript "freeze" period. Please refer to the step-by-step guide via Student Status Letter to view and print your Status Letter.
