Processing your eTranscript

eTranscript orders are processed and transmitted from UCalgary to MyCreds™ every business day. You’ll receive an email notification from MyCreds™ once your eTranscript is available.

Sharing your eTranscript

Once you receive a confirmation email that your eTranscript is available, you simply log in to the MyCreds™ Learner Portal. From the portal, you can share your eTranscript with a recipient by purchasing share credits, clicking "share" and entering the recipients email address.

How-to Videos on the MyCreds™ website can help troubleshoot if you encounter any issues.

Note: You can only share your eTranscript with a number of recipients equal to the amount of share credits you purchase when ordering from MyCreds™.


Your recipient

The recipient will receive an email notification from MyCreds™ that includes your name and indicates you’ve shared a document with them. The recipient can click on the link provided in the email notification to view your transcript and they can also download your transcript.

How your document is shared

You have full control over how your document is shared. You can designate recipients, specify how long they can access your document and/or require them to use a PIN that you select. You can also send the document to another post-secondary institution directly through the MyCreds™ platform (if the school is registered on the MyCreds™ network). 

Instructions on how to share your eTranscript are available when you "Take a tour" of MyCreds™

Your eTranscript is free to you as a student. If you would like to share your eTranscript, you’ll need to purchase a specific number of share credits from MyCreds™.

Note: you can only share your eTranscript with a number of recipients equal to the amount of share credits you purchase when ordering from MyCreds™.

Each share credit allows you to share one secure eTranscript with one recipient, such as an employer or an educational institution. You aren't paying for the eTranscript itself, but instead the number of shares that you would like to complete.

For example, say that you want to apply to graduate programs at two universities (University A and University B). If you need to submit an eTranscript with your application to each university, you can purchase two share credits on the MyCreds™ Learner Portal.

When you’re notified that your eTranscript is ready for sharing, you’ll then log in to the MyCreds™ Learner Portal and use the first share credit to send your eTranscript to University A and the second Share Credit to send your eTranscript to University B.

In the MyCreds™ Learner Portal, you’ll be able to see how many share credits you've purchased, how many you’ve already used and how many are remaining.

When you’ve used all of your share credits you’ll no longer be able to share your eTranscript with additional recipients. If the remaining share credits reach zero and you need to share your eTranscript with another recipient, you can purchase more share credits on the MyCreds™ Learner Portal.

Your eTranscript is not available for download from the documents page in your MyCreds™ Learner Portal. This is one of the ways that UCalgary ensures the integrity and authenticity of academic records for employers, graduate schools, government authorities and other verifiers. When you share the document with a third-party recipient directly through the MyCreds™ platform, the recipient is able to verify with UCalgary that the document is authentic and current. They’ll also have access to the transcript in PDF format, which they can download and retain for their record-keeping purposes.

If you need to download a copy of your official transcript for your own records, you can share the document with yourself so you can access and download the PDF. This option will use one share credit. If you need to share the document securely with another third-party within the platform, you’ll need to purchase additional share credits. Learn how to purchase share credits from MyCreds™

You can follow the complete step-by-step instructions for sharing your eTranscript by clicking on the "Take a tour" link in the MyCreds™ Learner Portal.

You can also view and download your unofficial transcript as a PDF directly from your Student Centre at any time. Downloading your unofficial transcript from your Student Center does not use any share credits. Learn how to download your unofficial transcript.

Important: If you choose to download your transcript from MyCreds™ and send that downloaded transcript to a third-party, institutions and organizations may not consider it valid. This is because third-party recipients will have no way of verifying that the document you send them is valid, current and up-to-date.

By sharing documents within the MyCreds™ platform, third-parties can verify the documents directly with UCalgary. If there are any updates to a document, the third-party recipient will immediately be able to access the updated version.
