Lions and lioness as the alumni and alumnae of University of Nigeria are fondly called, can heave a sigh of relief as they can now access their transcripts from anywhere in the world as the university has introduced anonline portal for transcripts, known as “i-transcript service”.
According to the Director, Information and Communication Technology, Mrs. Christina Oriola, the introduction of the service is to ease the burdenof students who often have to travel from within and outside the country for the sole purpose of getting a transcript of their academic records for graduate records or employment.
She added that this will enable alumni /alumnae of the university all over the world to apply for their transcripts from the comfort of their homes and conclude transcript request online and in real time. “It would also improve efficiency in transcript processing, enabling transcript to be generated, printed, endorsed and dispatched via a courier company within24 hours”.
The UNN “i-transcript”, as it is branded, is accessible on the university website alumni.unn.edu.ng/itranscript. Users are expected to fill a form with their names, matriculation number as well as email address. They can provide details of the institution to which they want the university to sendthe transcript.
The Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Bartho Okolo, disclosed that the UNN i-transcript service was borne out of the on-going work on digitizing academic records in the institution.
According to him, the first part of the exercise was the digitization of records of the last 30 years up to 1980. The school has digitized records of students’ academic work for the last 20 years. In the second phase, theuniversity would compile records up to its inception in 1960.
Prof. Okolo reiterated that “every student can get their records from the transcript portal. They apply online, pay using any of the payment servicesand get a signed and authenticated e-transcript in a few days. Hard copy records would be sent either locally or internationally and take a few moredays and additional sums’’, he said.
