*An official transcript is printed on security paper, imprinted with the University Seal, and signed by the registrar. These are typically needed to verify degree and/or education for employers, colleges and universities, or any other agency that requires a certified record.
An unofficial transcript contains the same information as an official transcript, however it is printed on plain white paper and does not contain any signatures or certifications.
