Transcripts, Diplomas, Certificates, and Verifications

Transcripts for HUC-JIR Students of Alumni/ae

The transcript is the complete record of all academic work attempted at HUC-JIR, regardless of the academic program, as a degree-seeking student or a non-degree student. The College-Institute does not provide official transcripts which segregate individual courses, schools, or terms, or which reflect only study at one level.

Official transcripts bear the University seal and the registrar’s signature and are provided directly to individuals, schools, or organizations with a signed release of the student.

The Registrar does not provide unofficial transcripts or other unofficial documents. Current students who want a simple listing of their Academic Course History should use the Student Information System.
