What is an Official or Unofficial Transcript

Official Transcript -

An official transcript is one that has sent directly from DSCC to the receiving college, business, institution, or person. An official transcript copy cannot be issued to a student. Official transcripts are printed on official transcript (blue and white) paper. It must bear college seal and the signature of the Director of Records. Electronic transcripts are considered official if delivered securely through the National Student Clearinghouse. Official transcripts are required for transfer to another college or university. Official transcripts are also provided to confirm education for professional employment opportunities, teacher or nursing licensure and other credential verification.

Unofficial Transcript -

Unofficial transcripts are those issued for use by the student for their personal use. Unofficial transcripts cannot be used to transfer to another college or university. Current students may login to MyDSCC and click on Student Records and then Academic Transcript to display your unofficial transcript. If you are not a current student, we recommend using the DSCC Transcript Request form to obtain a free copy of your DSCC unofficial transcript.
