A transcript is a comprehensive record of a student's academic performance as recorded at the University of Manitoba including courses, grades and degrees awarded. Official transcripts are printed on security paper with the University of Manitoba crest and signature of the registrar.
The Registrar’s Office issues official transcripts of academic activity and achievement. Official transcripts are normally required to support applications for admission to academic programs at another institution and to support employment applications when requested.
