Requesting transcripts and certificates

The International Baccalaureate® (IB) provides an official transcript of grades for the Diploma Programme (DP). It is an official copy of an IB candidate’s results.

Transcripts can be sent directly to an institute of higher education, such as a university. These documents are not sent to students or other organisations.

Before results are released, students can request to have results sent to six universities. This service is free of charge.

Of these six, only one can be requested for the USA and only three for Canada.

All requests must be submitted by the programme coordinator of the school where the student is taking the DP.

Additional transcript requests can be made and will incur a fee. You can read more about this in the section below.
