Request for Academic Transcripts

Important Information You Should Know

An academic transcript is a certified record of your full enrolment history at UNSW, including all courses attempted, results received and degrees awarded. You do not need to submit separate requests for each degree that you obtained.

UNSW will not send transcripts via email or in any other digital format.

Academic transcripts cannot be issued to any student who has outstanding debts with the University. Debts include all fees, loans, library fines, housing blocks, COFA blocks, and equipment.

Please be aware that if you provide falsified documents to external agencies which misrepresent your qualifications from UNSW, then this could result in one of a range of penalties, from failure in the course or suspension (where applicable), exclusion and/or the matter may be reported to ICAC. As a student, you should be aware of your obligations and responsibilities under the Student Code which can be found here:

Processing Timeframe

Please allow 5 working days for your request to be processed and dispatched. Delays may occur during and after main assessment periods. Please allow additional processing time if you were enrolled in or prior to 1968 and have not requested a transcript recently.


For charges and payment information refer to

A free copy of your transcript can be sent directly to another Australian University or TAFE College. However, opting to have the transcript mailed using Express Post will incur a postage charge.

We will send your transcript through Australia Post standard mail within Australia or by airmail for international addresses, at no additional cost.
If required, we can send your transcript within Australia via Express Post or Internationally via TNT Courier. A delivery charge will be applied if you choose delivery with either Express Post or TNT Courier, for estimated pricing charges refer to
Items sent via TNT courier will require a receiver’s contact name and telephone number, and cannot be sent to post boxes.

Proof of Identity

To enable the University to fulfil its obligations under the Privacy and Personal Information Protection Act (NSW) 1998, you must submit a copy of your driver's license, passport or birth certificate. Your request cannot be processed until you provide this. If you do not have a current driver's license or a passport, you will need to provide copies of the equivalent of 100 points of ID such as medicare card, bankcard, student identity card, electricity bill etc.

If you have changed your name since you studied at UNSW, you will also need to provide evidence of this by providing either a copy of your marriage certificate, official change of name certificate or a copy of other relevant documentation.
