An official transcript is a complete record of a student's academic history at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU). It includes:
- All undergraduate, graduate, law and continuing education courses
- Grades earned
- Academic progress
- Honours and graduation information
- Admission to and withdrawal from programs of study
- Other credits granted towards a program
Courses dropped by the deadline without academic penalty do not appear on the official transcript. A transcript sent to a recipient from an individual personal email as a PDF is not official.
All official transcripts are complete and unabridged. Partial transcripts are not issued.
Most organizations recognize and accept official electronic documents from verified providers like MyCreds. If your recipient does not allow this option, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. You will need to provide an email or a link to a website from the organization that confirms that they do not accept electronic transcripts.
TMU's official transcripts are issued through MyCreds (external link, opens in new window) , powered by Digitary. MyCreds is a leading digital credential expert and platform for certifying, sharing and verifying academic credentials in a secure digital format.
These digital transcripts can be shared securely with educational institutions, employers, government authorities and other third parties.
Please do not create your own account on MyCreds. You will not be able to retrieve your transcripts this way.
Before you place your transcript order, please view your unofficial transcript first to make sure your grades are finalized and displayed on your student record.
Note: TMU will not provide refunds for transcripts issued with grades missing.
Please visit MyServiceHub Support: How to Request an Official Transcript for a step-by-step guide on how to order your transcript in your Student Center in MyServiceHub. You will be able to choose a specific number of Share Credits during this process.
A Share Credit is $20 CAD. Each Share Credit lets you share the secure transcript with one recipient, like an employer or an educational institution. Transcript Fees are non-refundable.
Your transcript will be processed within 1-2 business days of your payment in MyServiceHub. When it is ready for you to use, you will get an email from MyCreds giving you instructions on your next steps. If you do not see the email, please confirm which email you used and check your spam or junk folder.
If it has been 2-3 business days and you still have not received the email, check your MyServiceHub account to see if your order has been completed. If it has, proceed to Step 3.
How to Check the Status of Your Transcript Order
Log in to my.torontomu.ca (opens in new window) and click the MyServiceHub tab and then select the Academics tile. Select Request Official Transcript and click the Review Orders button at the bottom of the page.
If the Transcript Processing Status for your order is Completed, it means your transcript has been transmitted to MyCreds. The Share Credit is ready to use.
Please do not create your own account on MyCreds as you will not be able to retrieve your transcripts this way.
Instead, use the link and instructions in your confirmation email to share your document. You can also follow the steps below.
- Sign in using this link: MyCreds (external link, opens in new window) .
- In the institution drop down menu, select Toronto Metropolitan University.
- Sign in using the same username and password you used to sign into MyServiceHub when you ordered your transcript. If you have issues with your username or password, please contact the CCS Help Desk.

In the MyCreds Learner Portal, you will be able to see how many Share Credits you have purchased, how many you have already used, and how many are left.
If you have tried the instructions above experience any issues logging into your MyCreds account, please contact the ServiceHub for help.
When you have used all the Share Credits that you purchased for your transcript, you will no longer be able to share it with more recipients. If you still need to share your transcript with another recipient, please submit a new transcript order through MyServiceHub and purchase more Share Credits.
Not All Downloads are Considered Authentic
Your transcript is not available for download from the Documents Page in your MyCreds Learner Portal.
It is important for the Registrar’s Office to ensure the integrity and authenticity of academic records sent to employers, graduate schools, government authorities and other verifiers. When you share the document with a third party through MyCreds, the recipient is able to verify with TMU that the document is authentic and current. They will have access to the transcript in PDF format. From there, they will be able to download the document and keep it for their record keeping purposes.
If You Need a Copy of Your Transcript
As a Learner, if you need to download a copy of your official transcript for your own records, you have the option to share the document with yourself. This will allow you to access and download the PDF. This option will use up one Share Credit. If you need to securely share the document with another third party in the platform, you will need to purchase extra Share Credits.
Follow the step-by-step instructions for sharing your transcript from the MyCreds Portal, but enter your own email address under Recipient Email. When this is done, you will receive a new email notification from MyCreds.ca|MesCertifs.ca (<email@example.com>) that includes a link to access your downloadable transcript.
You can also view and download your unofficial transcript as a PDF directly from your Student Center in MyServiceHub at any time. Downloading your unofficial transcript from MyServiceHub does not use any Share Credits.
Please note that downloaded versions of your transcript may not be considered valid by some third parties. The recipients will have no way of verifying that the document you sent them is valid, current and up-to-date.
By sharing documents within the MyCreds platform, third parties are able to verify the documents directly with TMU. If there are any updates to a document, the third-party recipient will immediately be able to access the latest version.
If you need a form or Third Party attachment to go with your official transcript order, Student Records will send it to the recipient on your behalf (separate from the transcript).
After you place your official transcript order through MyServiceHub, please send an email to Student Records at firstname.lastname@example.org with the form attached. Make sure that you have completed your parts of the form and add your signature if necessary. Include the recipient’s email address and any additional instructions you have.
If you have questions about this process before you place an order, please contact Student Records.
As a student, you have full control over access to your documents. In the MyCreds Learner Portal, you can view the individual share that you would like to change and disable the recipient’s access at any time.
If you set an expiry date when you shared your transcript using a Share Credit, your recipient will lose access once the expiry date passes.
An expired or disabled share still counts towards the number of Share Credits you have used.
TMU is a MyCreds institution that issues all transcripts in a secure digital format. However, in some cases the receiver may be unable or unwilling to accept digital documents through MyCreds.

- Student Records will process your request and send you an email confirming that it was mailed or emailed.
