A transcript is an official record of a student's entire tenure at Columbia. It reflects all coursework and grades per term for each school attended within the University. Other information on the transcript includes:
Name as it appears in the Columbia University records
School and departmental affiliation
Degree/certificate program (if applicable)
Degree/certificate conferral date (if applicable)
Honors earned (if applicable)
G.P.A. is printed only on transcripts of students from CC, GS, SPS, and SEAS. Note: G.P.A. will not be printed on transcripts of students who attended prior to 1982.
There is no fee for this service. Transcripts cannot be produced for anyone whose record has been put on hold for an outstanding University obligation.
Current students and recent alumni with a UNI should request transcripts and certification online using SSOL. The Student Service Center is unable to print transcripts at the counter during the first three weeks of each semester in order to focus on the provision of quality service to all students and their families.
The Office of the Registrar's eTranscript service is available in SSOL to both current students and alumni. We’ve partnered with a premier electronic transcript vendor to provide a new application that allows you to electronically send secure, official PDF transcripts to the destination of your choice within minutes, in addition to standard services including online ordering and fulfillment of traditional paper transcripts.
When you order a transcript through this service, you can track your request online and receive email notifications when the transcript is generated and delivered electronically (or mailed, based on the delivery preference). The tracking mechanism also allows you to monitor when an electronic transcript is actually opened by the intended recipient.
Additional benefits of this service include:
To order, follow the instructions below. If you have any questions, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently enrolled students and former students with access to Student Services Online (SSOL) should order secure electronic or paper transcripts using SSOL.
Recent alumni: you can reset your UNI password for SSOL access by visiting http://uni.columbia.edu/. Transcript requests that can be completed using SSOL will not be printed or mailed by the Office of the University Registrar.
For information regarding Library fines, please see the Butler Library Circulation website.
Any requests for Columbia to send transcripts by express, next-day service to other parties must be accompanied by a prepaid FedEx shipping bill.
To create the prepaid shipping bill (Fedex only):
Please note that this is for overnight shipping and should be processed the same day in order for the transcript/certification to get to the intended destination by next day.
Students and alumni/ae engaged in the process of medical school admission can request that their transcripts be transmitted electronically through secure, pdf transfer from SIS/SSOL directly to AMCAS (American Medical College Application Service). Students sending their electronic transcripts to AMCAS will log into Student Services Online (SSOL), click the “Transcript Ordering” menu option, then click the “Order Transcript” button, and, finally, select the “AMCAS Transcript (PDF)” option (see image below). Students will be prompted to enter their AMCAS ID number thereby ensuring that AMCAS can link the transcript request to the correct account.
