Transcripts 



Internal Academic Record

An internal academic record is an uncertified copy of your student academic record. It is designed to show the same information as your Official Transcript, but is printed by you and does not carry the Registrar's seal or signature.

What are the benefits of Internal Academic Record?

The Internal Academic Record provides students with a place to view current GPAs, completed courses, and courses in which they are currently enrolled. It is helpful for internal purposes, such as applying for an internship, showing courses a student has taken, applying for a research grant, or as proof of meeting a minimum GPA requirement.

Internal Academic Records are available 24/7 through this direct link on the portal, myau.american.edu (portal login required).

Official Transcripts cannot be sent by e-mail or faxed.
