Q. What is a transcript?
A. A transcript is a complete record of a student's academic activity at Champlain College, listing all courses taken and grades earned. Other information on the transcript includes degrees earned, Dean's & President's List notations and GPA, term by term and cumulative.
Q. What is the difference between an official transcript and an unofficial transcript?
A. Both an official and an unofficial transcript reflect a student's academic performance at the College. An official transcript is printed on security paper and bears the registrar's signature and a raised seal. An unofficial transcript is printed on white paper; it does not contain the registrar's signature or the college seal. Official transcripts are mailed to other schools or businesses in specially prepared envelopes; unofficial copies may be sent directly to the student via fax or US Mail.
