Important Tips about Ordering Transcripts

  • Five (5) to seven (7) working days are required to process  transcript requests. Please also allow sufficient time for mail  delivery.
  • Official transcripts must be sent directly to another university or  college, to an official of an organization, or sent directly to the  student in a sealed envelope. If the transcript is sent directly to the  student, the sealed envelope and the transcript will be stamped "not  official if seal is broken". These sealed envelopes are mailed in a  larger envelope that can be opened by the student. Transcripts marked  "Issued to Student" may be ordered for personal use.
  • The Registrar's office cannot release high school transcripts and  other documents on file. Contact your high school principal for school  records. For transcripts from another university or college, contact the  registrar of that institution.
  • Student records are confidential. Transcripts are issued only upon  the request of the student; third party requests will not be processed.
  • The recipient may find it helpful to know why you have submitted a  transcript. (Examples: degree program applied for, employment position  being sought, identification number).

Co-Curricular Transcript

The Co-Curricular Transcript is an official record of verified activities issued by Acadia University that complements, but are not a credited part of, your academic program or coursework. It is a unique and professional means for you to document and highlight extracurricular accomplishments, involvement in extracurricular activities, and additional learning developed outside of the classroom throughout your time at Acadia University. You will use this transcript to complement your academic transcript and resume when applying to employers, grad schools, coop placements, and scholarship programs. Co-Curricular Transcripts can only be requested through Career Services. They are not automatically provided to students until an official request is placed by emailing the Coordinator at cctcoordinator@acadiau.ca.
