Student Transcript


Definition: A student transcript is a student’s permanent academic record.

What This Means: The student transcript is now defined narrowly to be the secondary school document that certifies the student’s academic record, typically for exchange with a postsecondary institution, employer, or other agency.

The student transcript’s contents and formats have been defined by SPEEDE/ExPRESS, SIF, PESC High School, and various state-specific standards. The contents actually exchanged are determined by the sender, the receiver, and the purpose of the record.
