Academic Record

Transcript of Academic Record

The transcript is a student's official academic record and includes the student's complete record at the University. Student records and transcripts are confidential and transcripts will be issued only at the request of the student or appropriate agencies or officials.

Apply for a transcript online through the Student Service Centre or in person at Enrolment Services in Brock Hall. Please allow at least one week from the date the application is made. Transcripts will not be issued to students who have any outstanding fees, including library and other charges, to the University. Fees for transcripts are payable in advance; transcripts will not be provided until payment is received.

Students are encouraged to order transcripts as early as possible. Transcripts may be requested up to six months in advance of a due date.

Retention of Student Records

UBC academic records, including all information appearing on a Transcript of Academic Record, are retained indefinitely. Notations of student discipline are retained according to the terms of the penalty imposed. Materials supporting applications for admission, correspondence, and transcripts from other institutions and similar material may be destroyed five years after a student's last registration, except for doctoral students, where materials may be destroyed after two years from the date of graduation. Other material may be destroyed sooner.

Students who submit irreplaceable material may request the return of that material. Such requests must be submitted with the original material. The office to which the material is submitted will return the material as soon as possible, and not later than six months after the student's graduation or last registration.
