A transcript is a student’s full academic record in this University. It may be issued to a student on application and upon payment of the prescribed fees. You may need this for scholarship or postgraduate programme applications.
A testimonial is an official document which certifies the qualification awarded to a student or the programme he/she is studying. Unlike transcript, it does not give details of the individual courses studied and/or completed and is usually used to attest the student status for such purposes as job hunting or sitting public examinations (e.g. TOEFL).
Please be reminded that the processing time for transcript / testimonial application is 10 working days (excluding Saturday, Sunday and public holidays). So if you need to submit the transcript / testimonial to other party, you should consider the processing time and apply well in advance.
