A transcript is a record of a student’s academic performance. The transcript lists all courses in the specific year and semester/session in which they were taken, the final grade for each course and the semester and cumulative grade point average (GPA).
Students should monitor carefully their transcripts at the end of each semester to ensure they are in good academic standing. Students who are not in good academic standing, that is whose GPA falls below 2.00, should meet immediately with their academic advisor. [link to Calculating the GPA]
Students whose accounts are current may request an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office. Effective Tuesday, 1st December 2020 electronic transcripts (e-transcripts) are being provided. Please be advised that the issuance of electronic transcripts for students who were in enrolled in The College of The Bahamas/University of The Bahamas prior to fall 2006, are not accessible in Parchment. Therefore, requests will have to be made for paper transcripts instead via the Parchment portal or at the Cashiers window on campus.
Students and alumni may apply online for an official transcript that will be securely and electronically forwarded directly to the intended institution or organisation. Once payment is remitted, the provision of the transcript is expected to take no more than two business days. To access the Parchment Storefront portal, click here. The option of requesting the traditional printed transcript is still available. For this option, the transcript request form is accessible here.
To submit questions or feedback, please email email@example.com.
