Transcripts for currently registered students

You may order 1 x free copy of your transcript per academic year providing the order is made prior to the end date of your programme. If there are marks on your record that have not been conferred by UCL, your transcript order will be held. The marks will need to be confirmed by examination boards before we can complete your order. Please note you are no longer considered a current student once your end date has been reached. 

Transcripts for final year graduating students

The results and awards for final year graduating students are not official until they are conferred by UCL. Once your award has been conferred by UCL, you will automatically be sent 5 copies of your transcripts together with your degree certificate. This will be posted to your home address as held on Portico within 3 months from the date your award is conferred by UCL.
