Your host institution will issue you a transcript for the term you are enrolled. In some cases, you must request the transcript – check with your on-site contact for details. Transcripts are required in order to process any credit for your term abroad (including elective hours!).
Students attending UNC Faculty-Led Programs will not receive a separate host institution transcript. The faculty-led courses will appear directly on the UNC transcript.
- Transcripts must include the actual grade (numerical or letter) earned, not simply “passed” or “failed”.
- Host institutions must send printed transcripts directly to the UNC Study Abroad Office at the mailing address at the bottom of the screen, not via the student.
- Electronic transcripts are accepted. The host institution must email them directly to the Credit Transfer Specialist (firstname.lastname@example.org) or your Study Abroad Advisor.
The Study Abroad Office will notify you when your host institution transcript arrives. You should review your transcript immediately to ensure all grades are recorded accurately. Instructions for accessing your transcript are below.
How to obtain your transcript
UNC Students who studied abroad in 2018 and beyond
Log into your application page (heelsabroad.unc.edu) and look under Attached Documents. If the UNC Study Abroad Office has received your transcript, you will be notified, and it will be posted here. You can then download a PDF copy of your host institution transcript.
UNC Students or studied abroad prior to 2018 AND UNC students who need a certified/official copy of their host institution transcript
If you no longer have access to your study abroad application page OR you need a certified/official copy of your host institution transcript for a graduate school application or other purpose, contact your host institution or third-party provider directly to request an official transcript.
