What is the difference between Unofficial and Official transcripts?

Unofficial transcripts can be any record of transcripts you have on file. Most schools allow you to access this at any time, especially for a degree in progress. This can be printed, scanned, and submitted as initial unofficial transcripts required for the application process.
Official transcripts are requested through your school, usually from the Registrar, and must be signed, sealed, and delivered from your College. If the seal is broken, they are not considered official. Official transcript are required 30 days after your start date in the position.
