We keep a database of typical coursework for various degrees and majors. This list may not match specific classes taken at a particular high school, university, or college. Instead, standard courses relate to your specific area of study. Usually, customers find this list acceptable since the classes match close enough. An example of differences might be using "English 101" and a school calling the same course "Intro to English." We have been selling documents with our standard coursework for years now. Through it all, roughly 90% of clients find upgrading coursework unnecessary. Therefore, we are confident you will be pleased with your custom document.

If you demand something more, you are more than welcome to request "custom coursework." With this, you will provide the coursework you want to display on your transcript. You can be as precise as you'd like. You can give us classes and let us choose the grades and the order of courses.

There is also an option where you can edit a transcript file yourself. We also offer more details about our custom options on specific service pages where we sell transcripts.

Keep in mind, whether it's 100% custom-made by us (or edited by you), everything we offer, including any transcript work, is backed by our risk-free guarantee. So know that we have your back, and we will take care of any issues.

What kind of transcript paper do you use?


We use "Official Document" or transcript security paper for most requests. It's the type of paper most universities, colleges, high schools, and testing centers would use when printing academic records! The highlights of this paper include the following:

  1. When photocopied, the words "COPY" appears - precisely like an actual academic transcript!
  2. Standard or custom coursework options!
  3. A watermarked logo in the background!
  4. "Grading Key" on back

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.

Can you add a "transcript key" to the back of my transcript?


Lots of customers ask about keys. What is a transcript key? A key tells somebody how to understand the transcript. It may explain how a grading scale works, what a symbol may mean, info on course numbers, transcript terminology, etc. We often add a key to all high school and college transcript requests. This is printed on the back of the paper but can be voided at 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.
