A transcript is a comprehensive record of an individual’s academic progress at the University; it contains all the significant facts about a student’s admission, academic level, and scholarship. The contents of an official transcript are listed in 9–400 of the Institutional Rules . No partial or incomplete record (such as a record with grades of F omitted) will be issued. A student who owes a debt to the University may be unable to obtain an official transcript until the debt is paid.
