An academic record is a list of your courses, units and results to date. It's also known as an academic transcript.
If you've studied more than one course it can include all courses or just a specific course.
When you order a printed version of your official academic record you can also request a scanned PDF. The PDF is an unofficial copy of your record and includes 'copy' watermarked on the document. You can't request a scanned PDF on its own or a scanned Australian Higher Education Graduation Statement (AHEGS).

We can only issue official documents to you, not a third party.
If you've ordered a printed academic record but can't collect it in person, you can authorise someone else to pick it up for you. We call this 'third-party authorisation'.
You need to submit a written authorisation at least three hours before collection either through your QUT email, a third party authorisation form (no express option), or power of attorney.
We're unable to accept authorisation by phone or from a non-QUT email address.
The person collecting your document will need to show either:
