Unofficial transcripts display a student’s entire academic history exactly as it would appear on an official transcript. The unofficial transcript is available through a student’s Banner account to save as a PDF; whereas an official transcript is printed on security paper and contains the seal of the University. Unofficial transcripts may not be accepted by all organizations.
