1.1.1.
Student unofficial academic transcript

The unofficial academic transcript is a document that, once enrolment has been finalized, contains the student's personal details and all the courses listed in the program structure.

Subsequently the transcript is updated with the dates and marks of exams passed.

The updated transcript - with dates and marks of exams passed - can be printed at anytime by accessing, through the yoU@B student Diary, from the Punto Blu terminals located at the University and selecting the menu Administrative Area - Certifications.

The unofficial academic transcript can be used as a memo as it is not a certification. On this transcript, during exams, teachers may write the mark and date of exam passed.
In addition it includes the single grades of courses subdivided in modules (if included in the program structure) valid exclusively at the University for rankings such as ISU scholarships, Exchange programs etc.).
