The transcript is an official permanent academic record which contains all courses and grades obtained by a student during the period of study at NTU.
Upon completion of their degree requirements, students will receive a complimentary hardcopy official transcript together with their degree certificate. These documents are issued at Convocation for students graduating in Semester 2. Students graduating in other periods (e.g. Semester 1) or who are unable to attend Convocation will be notified via their NTU email account once the documents are ready for collection at One Stop @ SAC.
An electronic transcript (eTranscript) will also be issued to graduates after the release of the hardcopy official transcript and notification of eTranscript retrieval will be sent to their NTU email account.
The eTranscript is:
- digitally signed and certified by NTU
- considered official and valid only in their certified PDF electronic form
- to be viewed through Adobe Reader versions 6.0 or higher or through Adobe Acrobat version 6.04 or higher. The latest Adobe Reader can be downloaded free from www.adobe.com
The eTranscript is available for those who graduated from 2008 for undergraduate programmes and from 2017 for graduate programmes.
Non-graduating students who have completed their courses in NTU will receive a hardcopy official transcript through their home university or their school:
- For exchange students, the transcripts will be mailed to their home university via the Office of Global Education and Mobility, with one copy given each to the university and the student.
- For non-exchange students, the transcript will be mailed directly to them via their schools.
Note: eTranscript is not applicable to non-graduating students.
Current students, including non-graduating students, may self-generate their Record of Examination Results at any time with no charges imposed via the Self-help Transcript System.
