Academic Transcripts

The transcript is the official record of all coursework and grades for classes attended at the Singapore Management University (SMU) in each academic term. It shows the academic history of the student at SMU, and displays the degree(s) awarded, grade point average and academic major(s) and awards, if any.

The Office of the Registrar provides official transcripts bearing the Singapore Management University ceremonial seal and the signature of the Registrar. An official transcript is issued without charge on the first instance to all graduates, together with the degree certificate. The SMU degree certificate is a unique and important document; neither copies nor duplicates are available. However, if your original certificate has been lost or damaged, you may order a replacement from the Registrar's Office via the  alumni website.

Please note that separate official transcripts are issued for different levels of programmes, i.e., undergraduate, graduate and exchange.
