Grades

Your grades can be viewed in PAWS. Only instructors of 100-level, six-credit unit classes are obligated to report midterm grades through PAWS; for all other instructors reporting midterm grades through PAWS is optional.

Transcripts

Transcripts will not be available from November 8-11. We will resume normal operations on November 12.

Transcripts are an official and complete listing of a student’s educational record at the U of S up until the day the transcript is produced. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that their record is complete to their satisfaction prior to ordering transcripts.

The U of S will not be held responsible for meeting deadlines or ensuring delivery.

Most universities require your transcripts be forwarded directly from the U of S.

The University does not fax or e-mail transcripts. There are 2 ways you can choose to receive transcripts:

Have it delivered to a 3rd party or yourself.

Universities and organizations normally require that transcripts be forwarded directly to them from the University of Saskatchewan. You may wish to request your transcripts to be Signed and Sealed if you are having it delivered to yourself.

Pick up by you or 3rd party.

Transcripts can be picked up at Student Central. Photo identification is required to pick up transcripts.

Transcripts will not be released to a third party without authorization by the student. If you ordered online you must provide that person with a completed Release of Information Authorization form or a letter with your signature authorizing release of the transcript to them. If you orderd using the paper form you can indicate who will be picking up the transcript on the form.

You may wish to request your transcripts to be Signed and Sealed if they are being picked up.

You can request your transcripts to be Signed and Sealed if they are being picked up by or delivered to you. The envelope containing the transcript is then affixed with a seal across the flap containing the Registrar’s signature as proof that the transcript has not been accessed by you.

Do not choose Signed and Sealed if your transcripts are being delivered directly to a third party as all transcripts sent to persons or organizations other than the student are deemed to be Signed and Sealed.

Transcripts are $10 per copy.

If you are having transcripts delivered via courier, specific rates will apply. Both courier charges and transcript charges are non-refundable.

Courier Rates

Courier delivery requires a street address and a contact telephone number for the recipient person or organization.  Transcripts cannot be delivered to a box number.

Before placing a transcript order:

  • Students should confirm through PAWS that all grades for their classes have been reported
  • Degrees, diplomas and certificates do not appear on transcripts until after Convocation.  If you would like your degree to appear on your transcript, please check the “Do not produce my transcript until after my degree, diploma, or certificate is awarded at Convocation” box on your transcript request form
  • Pay all outstanding accounts with the University otherwise you will not be able to place a transcript order

Transcripts can only be ordered the following ways (they cannot be ordered over the phone, by e-mail, or by fax).: 

Alumni who took classes prior to September 1986 may have a hold applied to their account which prevents viewing of the Unofficial Transcript or online ordering of Official Transcripts. The hold has been applied because academic records exist outside of the University's electronic records system. If you have such a hold and wish to access your transcripts online, please contact Transcripts.

(NEPS) Students - Effective March 1, 2014, the University of Saskatchewan will no longer include SIAST and FNUC transcripts for the Nursing Education program of Saskatchewan (NEPS) students.
