Academic transcript/record

COVID-19 UPDATE: Due to current health orders, we have limited staff access to campus and document printing facilities. This may mean that there is a delay in processing of your order for printed academic documents. Please allow at least 2 weeks for your document/s to be processed and posted via Australia Post. Delivery delays may also occur due to high demand. We are going live with our new Student Management System on 6 October. To prepare for this change, academic documents will be unavailable from 7pm Sunday 26 September.

What is an academic transcript/record?

An academic transcript is the official record of a student’s study, including all subjects and awards undertaken at Western Sydney University or The College (for Diploma students).  An academic record is the official record of results achieved in all enrolled units in a foundation studies course undertaken at The College.
