Ordering transcripts before classes start

Courses for the current session will not display on your transcript until the first day of classes. Make sure you order your transcript on or after the first day of classes if you want the current session’s courses to display.

For example, if you have registered for Winter Term 1 or Term 2 but classes haven’t started yet, your transcript won’t display any course information for that session. You’ll have to wait until Winter Term 1 classes start for the courses to appear on your transcript.
