At our service, we maintain a comprehensive database of typical coursework for various degrees and majors. While the courses listed may not match the specific classes taken at a particular high school, university, or college, they are standard courses that are relevant to your area of study. Many customers find this list acceptable as the courses closely align with their actual coursework. For example, a school might refer to a course as "Intro to English," while our list includes "English 101." We have been providing custom documents with standard coursework for several years, and approximately 90% of our clients do not require any upgrades to their coursework. Therefore, we are confident that you will be satisfied with the authenticity of your custom document.

However, if you require more customization, you are welcome to request "custom coursework." With this option, you can provide us with the specific coursework you want to display on your transcript, with the option to specify grades and the order of courses to your liking.

Additionally, we offer an option for you to edit a transcript file yourself, providing you with more control over the content. Further details about our custom options can be found on specific service pages where we offer transcripts.

It's important to note that whether you choose our standard coursework, request custom coursework, or edit the transcript yourself, everything we offer, including any transcript work, is backed by our risk-free guarantee. We are committed to ensuring customer satisfaction and will address any issues promptly and professionally.

What type of paper do you use for printing custom academic transcripts?

We use "Official Document" or transcript security paper for most of our requests. This is the same type of paper that is commonly used by universities, colleges, high schools, and testing centers when printing official academic records. The features of this paper include:

  1. "COPY" watermark that appears when photocopied, mimicking an authentic academic transcript.
  2. Standard or custom coursework options to suit your needs.
  3. Watermarked logo in the background for added security.
  4. "Grading Key" printed on the back of the paper for reference.

Rest assured that we utilize high-quality security paper to ensure that your custom academic transcripts are printed with the utmost professionalism and authenticity.

Do you include holograms?

We stock self-destructing holograms that we can add to any final transcript prints. They are a standard feature on security papers. However, sometimes we omit this if the transcript does not feature one.

When should my graduation or passing date be?

Some customers know what date they want. Others need a personal replacement and sometimes can't recall the specific month and day. Others who buy these as novelties aren't sure where to begin.

Graduate dates often change depending on the type of degree. Transcripts from ged testing locations, have no specific date because tests are administered year-round.

Regarding transcripts from high schools, graduations are late Spring, usually. We recommend using a May or June graduation date with transcripts from colleges and universities. If unsure what date to provide, leave this field blank on the order form. Later, we can research the most suitable date and fill this part in on your behalf.

Do you include a "transcript key" on the back of your transcripts?

A transcript key is a helpful addition to academic records as it provides a detailed breakdown of the transcript. It may include explanations of grading scales, symbols or codes used, course numbering details, and other relevant terminology. At our institution, we often include a transcript key on the back of high school and college transcripts upon request. However, if you prefer not to have a transcript key included, we can void it upon your request.

Do you emboss your transcripts?

Yes. All of our transcripts are embossed with a stamp that reads "official records". Often when you request transcripts from a school, they are embossed. To make ours look legit, we emboss our transcripts also. This is one of the many add-ons that help make these transcripts a popular hit with our customers.

The stamp is applied using embossing plates that are engraved with our own registrar seal. These plates push the seal onto the transcript

What if I need a particular field of study on my transcripts?

Like we said before, we stock coursework for many popular degrees. You may want to contact us first if you have a degree that you feel is highly uncommon. You can also upgrade to custom coursework. We are willing to print any degree you wish except for law and medical degrees. This regulation applies to both diplomas and transcripts. Diploma Company will not publish those types of degrees under any circumstances.
