The Office of the Registrar does not issue unofficial transcripts. Only students with IU student computing accounts may view and print their unofficial transcripts.
Current students who want an unofficial copy of their transcript may obtain one without charge using OneStart Student Self-Service.
To access your unofficial transcript follow these steps:
Unofficial Transcripts, Program GPA and IU GPA
The unofficial transcript will display the same information as your official Indiana University transcript, but it includes the supporting detail about how the Program GPA is calculated. The Student Program GPA is calculated according to the rules determined by the student's academic program at the time of printing. This GPA is subject to change whenever the student changes program.
Degree programs vary widely in their repeat rules, grade forgiveness policies, and other policies and practices related to degree completion requirements and GPA calculations. For example, courses that have been retaken under the conditions of the Extended-X (Retaken Course/GPA Exclusion Policy) are noted with an "X" following the grade. Under this policy, both enrollments in the course and their grades remain on the record, but the enrollment of the "X" graded course is excluded from the university credit hour totals and grade point average (IU GPA). This "X" grade may or may not be excluded from the program credit hours and grade point average (Student Program GPA) depending upon the policy of the student's primary program.
University (IU) GPA is the traditional, standard calculation and includes relatively few special considerations and is consistent across all academic programs within an academic level (e.g., undergraduate). Term and cumulative IU Summary statistics throughout the transcript are based on university-wide rules (all "X" grades are honored for exclusion from the GPA, all other coursework/grades are included in the statistics, even if repeated, etc.).
The Semester IU GPA, as well as a cumulative to date IU GPA, are calculated at the end of each semester. The overall IU GPA summary statistics are reflected at the end of each student career level.
At the end of the transcript, you will see a Student Program Summary. These statistics are calculated according to the rules of your current program (whether "X" grades are honored for exclusion from the GPA, whether courses may be repeated for credit, etc.). The cumulative Program GPA statistics are based on the student's last active program at that career level. Certain courses may include a note indicating the course was repeated or an equivalent course was later completed. Courses with this note are excluded from the Student Program GPA calculation.
Be aware that unofficial transcripts produced from OneStart will not show the student name or student number and thus will not typically be accepted for official transactions such as application for admission or as proof of a degree.
NOTE: If you have left the university and can no longer access your unofficial transcript in OneStart, you will order official transcripts from the Registrar's Office.
To receive a copy of your official transcript, your IU account must be free of financial or disciplinary encumbrances. This may include your account with the Office of the Bursar, the Student Loan Administration, the Dean of Students/Greek Housing, or Student Ethics. If you have any unsettled encumbrances with these offices, there will be a "hold" on your record and we will not be able to issue your transcript. If you think you might have an unresolved hold from any IU office and would like a Service Representative to check your status, please call the Office of the Registrar at (812)855-7505. If you have a hold, you must contact the appropriate office to resolve your hold before submitting your transcript request.
