Please note that a fee of $5.00 is required to accompany each request for an official or unofficial transcript.
An academic transcript is a complete record of all the credit-bearing coursework you attempted or completed at SUNY Upstate Medical University. In addition to being a record of your coursework, it also indicates any degree our University has conferred for you. An academic transcript is only considered official if it is printed on security paper with the seal and signature of the registrar. Any transcript our University sends directly to a student and is opened by the student is to be considered an unofficial copy of their transcript.
It is the policy of SUNY Upstate Medical University to require that all official transcripts be made out to a specific institution or agency.
An official transcript may be mailed to a student in a sealed envelope when required, but the name of an institution or agency who will be the final recipient must be provided in the request for a transcript.
It is the policy of Upstate Medical University not to release an official transcript to a student. Exceptions are made when the transcript is made out to a third party as the final recipient, sent on security paper, and enclosed in a sealed envelope bearing the Registrar’s name. An official transcript not sent on security paper (i.e. a transcript to be scanned is sent on a paper with a watermark, not security paper) may only be released directly to the official third party recipient.
