The academic transcript is an official and complete record of academic achievements at Richmond, The American International University in London, and carries the University seal and signature of the Academic Registrar.
Transcripts can be posted or handed directly to students, or mailed from the Academic Registry to other academic institutions, employers or organisations in sealed envelopes. Transcripts posted to other institutions (particularly those in the US) may require the transcript envelope to be received by them unopened, sent directly from Richmond’s Academic Registry.
We do not provide electronic transcripts. We do not send transcripts by e-mail as they contain a large amount of personal information, and we do not issue unofficial transcripts (although current students and recent graduates can download these from their Self-Service accounts).
Transcript requests should be made well in advance of the date the transcript is needed. We aim to process transcript requests within 3-5 working days, but this may take longer during busy periods in the University. You should allow time for us to resolve any queries, and for international postage timeframes (both Royal Mail and the postal system of the country to which it is being sent).
We do not acknowledge transcript requests separately, or notify students when they are sent.
