What is the difference between Official and Unofficial Transcripts?Transcript

    UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS - do not have the official school seal or signature, nor are they in a sealed envelope.  An unofficial transcript is typically requested to provide proof of grades for auto insurance or other personal needs. These can be emailed to you. 

    OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS - have the official school seal and signature and are placed in a sealed envelope. Some scholarships require an Official Transcript, however most do not.
