University of the Western Cape Academic Record


What Is an Academic Transcript in South Africa?

An academic transcript is an official record of your attendance, coursework, and grades from an academic institution. Usually one would only attach a transcript when an employer requests it in the application process, in which case it would be a requirement that could disqualify you should you refuse to submit a copy.

How Long Does a University Keep Your Transcripts?

AACRO guidelines suggest that a community college should retain these transcripts for a minimum of one year after the term in which you applied if you do not enroll; otherwise, it should retain them for a minimum of five years after your graduation or last date of attendance.
