Academic Transcripts

As part of our ongoing commitment to enhancing our student experience and promoting positive sustainability practices, The University of Cambridge issues official University transcripts digitally online through Digitary CORE.

What is Digitary CORE?

Digitary CORE is a trusted, secure cloud platform that helps University students from around the world to access and share their verified academic documents online.  Verified documents can be stored, accessed and shared with employers, other education providers, governments and third parties, 24/7, from anywhere in the world. This allows for an efficient and effective way to view and share your documents, providing a platform where you are in control of who views your documents and how.

Access to your documents can take up to 5 workings days from request, you will receive email confirmation once these are ready.

For Graduands who matriculated on or after Michaelmas Term 1980 we strongly advise that before ordering an official transcript that you check your unofficial transcript to ensure the content matches your requirements. Your unofficial transcript is available prior to purchasing any official copy via Student self-service or ESS.

Key benefits of Digitary CORE include:

  • Students can access their digitally certified official academic documents online
  • Students can securely share their documents with third parties, quickly and easily
  • Students have full control over who they share their documents with and for how long
  • Students can present their documents in CVs, online profiles and applications to stand-out
  • Employers and others can quickly and easily verify students’ academic documents


Current Students

Please log into CamSIS Self-Service and click on the Academic Tile to access transcript services.  Once you have access to your documents in Digitary CORE we strongly advise that you link your account to a personal email address in addition to your @cam address.

Former Students

Please log into CamSIS Extended Self-Service and click on the Academic tile. Please see the ESS FAQ page if you have any further questions.

Please note, if you matriculated before 1980 you will not be able to access a digital transcript. Please purchase a paper copy instead.

The Transcript

The content of the transcript cannot be modified as it represents an accurate record of your course(s) at the University of Cambridge. If you believe your document contains errors please check your personal details and course registration in CamSIS. If you need help doing this or would like further information, please contact:

If the transcript does not match your requirements, please contact your College or Department who may be able to provide further course statements. Please be advised that Tripos (undergraduate) paper marks have only been collected for transcripts since 2003, and there are gaps in some subjects. If your transcript does not contain the individual paper marks it will still contain the paper titles and the overall class obtained for each Part. Marks for other examinations, where available, have been attached to records after this date. For example, marks for MPhil exams have only been collected since 2006.

There is a one-off charge of £25 for lifetime access and unlimited use of Digitary.

This service also allows you to access your academic verification document which you can then share directly and securely with a third party. More information is available here.

We are unable to provide bespoke transcripts and verifications, students should approach their College or Department if they require such documentation.

The University no longer provides academic verifications to third parties - organisations must contact students directly.

Paper Transcripts

** Due to the coronavirus pandemic we are unable to process any requests for paper copies of transcripts until further notice. If you wish to have access to your official transcript electronically and share it on-line with other organisations for job applications and other education institutes you can access this via Digitary (further information given above) **

The instructions below are only relevant when the lockdown period is over and staff return to the office

These can be requested via the University online store; priced at £25 for the first copy, then £10 for each additional copy within the same order. They are identical to the online transcript and are available to order online;

The online store offers an optional DHL delivery service at an additional cost of £15.00 per address for overseas delivery only. This service is strongly recommended to ensure safe delivery. The University does not accept responsibility for items lost in transit. Where multiple deliveries are required, the £15.00 is payable for each different address.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have an existing Digitary account (prior to May 2018) linked to an @cam email address which I no longer have access to. How do I regain access?

Please email with your full name, date of birth, College and the email address with which you wish to register.

I am having problems accessing Digitary; are there any issues with browsers?

We recommend using the latest versions of Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Safari, plus Android and iOS for mobile browsers.

I completed more than one course at the University, do I need to purchase multiple transcripts?

No, your transcript contains your entire academic record with the University. Therefore if you have completed multiple courses they will be listed in chronological order on your transcript.

Can I add/change/remove information from my transcript?

No, your transcript is produced automatically by pulling all of the relevant information from your student record and formatting it accordingly. Therefore there is no way to change or amend it. However you may be able to have your department or your College provide you with an unofficial supplementary transcript if you require extra information. Please contact your departmental or College administrator for information.

What if I forgot/don’t know my CRSid or USN?

You will need to contact the Student Registry, giving your full name, date of birth, College and matriculation term, by emailing to confirm your details.

What is my matriculation term?

This is your registration term, the term you first started as a student at the University.

I have received the notification email to advise that my document is ready but when I log in to Digitary CORE there are no documents available. What should I do?

Check that you have registered/signed into Digitary using the same email address that the notification email was sent to.  If the documents are still not available to view clear your browser cache and sign back in to Digitary CORE.

I have registered with Digitary CORE, how do I request my documents?

You have inadvertantly subscribed to Digitary CORE before requesting your documents via student self-service or ESS.  Further guidance on how to subscribe/order is shown above.

How does the sharing of my transcript work in Digitary?

Document sharing works by generating a secure and unique URL to the Digitary site. You can control the level of access associated with the URL and you can choose how the URL is delivered to the person you wish to share your document with. Further FAQs on how to use Digitary are available on the Digitary core website
