Official Transcripts

Official transcripts are documents that are produced by a college or university's Office of the Registrar (or similar), and must be ordered according to the instructions provided by the university. Whether issued as secure .pdf documents, via a third party (such as National Student Clearinghouse, or Parchment), or printed on blue tamper proof security paper, official transcripts are important to third parties so that they can be assured of authenticity (originating directly from the university) and content accuracy. Official transcripts are usually issued in portrait format, and contain the seal of the university and the signature of the University Registrar.

(For Non-US Baccalaureate Degrees) Transcript Evaluation and Translation

For those candidates seeking a teaching credential, please note that, as part of your application for a state-issued teaching credential in some states, you will need to have your official baccalaureate degree transcript from non-U.S. institutions evaluated for educational equivalence by a National Association of Credential Evaluation Services  (NACES) member agency. This evaluation must be a course be a course or course analysis report that clearly states that the degree is equivalent to a US bachelor's degree Transcript Evaluation Guide. See www.naces.org for a list of current NACES member agencies that can conduct a transcript evaluation and/or provide translation services. We maintain a special agreement with WES (World Education Services); to use their service, please click here.
