Request for endorsed academic transcript and duplicate degree certificate

Please note that the new transcript policy does not apply to current or registered students who have not yet had their degree classification approved.

It also does not apply to Research students.

Current students and students undertaking research-based degree programmes (PhD, MRes) should email to request an official copy of your academic record.

Current students may obtain a hard copy of their Academic Transcript by visiting the ASC, 79 North Street, at any time.

From 2010 all graduating Undergraduate and Taught Postgraduate students will receive two free copies of a HEAR document at their graduation ceremony. Once graduated, should alumni require additional transcripts to be sent to them, or forwarded to a company/institution, they should follow the instructions for ordering and paying for transcripts below. 


Requests for endorsed academic transcripts

The Academic Registry can provide all alumni (graduates and non-graduating former students) with copies of their Academic Transcript. An Academic Transcript will provide the following information and provides a link to an explanation of the appropriate grading system.

  • The modules/classes which have been taken in each year of study.
  • Any credits transferred in or gained as part of an exchange programme.
  • The assessment and reassessment (as appropriate) grades for each module/class.
  • The total number of credits gained in each module taken and in each year of study.
  • The total number of ECTS credits gained in each module taken and in each year of study (where applicable).
  • The degree awarded and degree classification (where applicable).
  • Pre-1995 only - rank received and result.
  • HEAR transcripts contain further information.

Please note: Detailed descriptions of non-St Andrews courses/modules will not be shown. These should be obtained from the relevant institution.

The University charges a fee of £13 for one single endorsed transcript and £25 for a batch of ten endorsed transcripts.

These fees apply to all former students and graduates.
