College Advising Center FAQ

What is the difference between my official and unofficial transcript?

Official Transcripts are issued by the Records Office, 312-369-7769. Official Transcripts are legal documents bearing Columbia's official seal. If you are applying Columbia credit to another college or university or verifying your graduation date, you will need a copy of your Official Transcript.

Unofficial Transcripts are available in the Records Office & the College Advising Center. Your unofficial transcript is available online via Oasis under "Academic Record". Your unofficial transcript is used for evaluation during advising sessions as well as self evaluation, GPA information, etc.
