What is an Official Transcript?
An official transcript documents the academic record of an individual from a school. To ensure the validity of this record, an official transcript is printed on security paper, often featuring a watermark and signature. Unofficial transcripts are typically
copies of this record (printed, emailed or photocopied) and cannot be used for application at a higher education institution. Typically an unofficial transcript will be marked “Issued to Student”. Unofficial transcripts can be submitted
for a preliminary review by completing our Undergraduate Transcript Review Request form.
As a transfer student applying to Bellarmine University, an official transcript must be mailed directly to Bellarmine University’s Office of Admission, should not be marked “Issued to Student”, addressed to the student, or hand delivered
by the student. To submit your official transcript for review, reach out to your previous learning institution and they will help you with their process.
Official transcripts should be directed to:
