Information on how to fill in the Academic Transcript:
An academic transcript is a table/overview of the courses and examination results achieved in your studies so far. Please use our template only if your examination office or department at Goethe University does not offer the service of transcripts in the English language. If they do offer it, you don't need us.
Some examination offices provide transcripts in the English language only upon request (Dep 02 and 05). Please inquire with your examination office first.
If your examination office does not provide transcripts in the English language, please use our template. Please fill in the marks you received exactly as they originally appear (incl. decimal places or "+" or "-"adendum). Do not make the conversion into another grading system yourself. An explanatory grade conversion table can be found at the bottom of the transcript form. Please present us the transcript you assembled during our office hours and do not forget to bring the original course certificates or QLS-printout so we can certify the transcript s correct. Additionally please bring the document as a file on a memory stick, so in case of alternations or corrections we can do those while you are here and print the correct version out and certify it.
