What is a Transcript?

An official transcript is a copy of your permanent academic record.

Prior to receiving your degree, it includes your legal name, class year, courses and the assigned grades taken at Williams and Williams affiliated programs, transfer credit toward the degree (specific courses and grades are not posted), dates of attendance, and semester and cumulative grade point averages (GPA), and Dean’s List if appropriate.

After your degree is awarded, your transcript also includes your degree, date of graduation, major(s), concentration(s) and awards and honors received.

    Official paper transcripts are issued on purple, heat sensitive security paper which includes the Williams College seal.
