Transcript Official but Incomplete?

Recommended Posts

On my UAlberta Launchpad, I recently submitted my updated transcript with Fall grades and it shows that it has been received but with this label:

Transcript, 1st Term Results & 2nd Term Registration (Official but Incomplete)

Does anyone know if this is a problem or is this normal?

I wonder if they take these grades into account for January waves, or if early admission extends into January? The email I got in December says that they receive the second term grades in February

On their website it says the deadline for documentation is Feb 1st - maybe they only consider Fall grades after early admission is over? and early admit continues till Feb 1st?

*pure speculation*

Official transcripts need to be provided by your university. Uploading your own transcript deems it to be an "unofficial transcript." If you are a student attending university in Alberta, then U of A will access your official transcripts through ApplyAlberta. If you are a student out of province, then your university must be the one to e-mail or mail transcripts with fall grades.

The ambiguity between 'official vs unofficial' and 'final vs. incomplete' transcripts has caused quite a headache for a few folks, it seems. Including me.

I submitted my transcripts through my university (out of province) rather than uploading them on my own, so they are official. Does your Launchpad say something different?

And the unending spectrum of terminology for application statuses...I don't know why half the statuses I have are not even listed in the respective university's status options.

NOT STARTED --> STARTED --> PARTIALLY COMPLETED --> HALF COMPLETED --> THREE-FIFTHS COMPLETED --> UNDER REVIEW --> REVIEWING --> PROCESSING --> PROCESSED --> PREPARING --> COMPILING --> COMPLETED --> EDITING --> FINISHED --> SUBMITTED --> and so on.

You forgot UNSCRAMBLING and SEVEN-EIGHTHS COMPLETED.

I will say I sent in an official transcript and mine says the same thing as Samii. I'm sure it has to do with the fact that it's an incomplete transcript because we're in 4th year and not finished the degree

Have any U of A students not had transcripts uploaded on launchpad yet? Mine still says not received.

So I was told to upload an unofficial transcript before my fall grades came in, so that is already checked off for me. I believe U of A will access my official transcripts on my behalf so that will check off the "official transcript" requirement. I agree with many comments above that the way they have categorized it is confusing.

Yes, I also uploaded my unofficial transcript before fall grades came, and I think when they got my official transcript recently with fall grades they went in manually and edited the wording on the checklist item, lol. So weird.

    • another thing to consider is the river valley in Edmonton. It's one of the biggest urban parks in the world, and is connected all around by pedestrian bridges and trails (go on google maps to see the size and range of it). Calgary is more built-up so the development often goes up to the river bank on many of its shores. That's arguably an effect of Calgary's corporate and shiny feel that other posters have brought up, so it's a matter of OP's preferences. I'm partisan to UofA cause that's where I go, but having been to Ucalgary for a debate tournament their campus feels somewhat newer but I still like mine better. UofA has an old english town red brick feel to it from the central walkway between campus st jean and the dentistry building, the old arts building and its opera house, and the alleyway between the campus bar and some other buildings. The building layout is also much more cohesive and not broken up by too many parking lots, whereas ucalgary had a few of them.  
    • @ghoogle @Ewith017 Congratulations to both of you! I am beyond excited for you guys! I wrote the January LSAT so I am still waiting on my score to finalize my application. I took a huge chance this year but really want to get into the program, so will apply for future cycles if it does not work out this time. If you guys are comfortable, could you let me know what GPA and LSAT score you were accepted with + how you think you did on the other application components.   
    • just thought it might be helpful to have a thread started since UofC/UofA invites are going out today! what firms have people heard from?
    • Agree with artsydork.  Yield protection is not a thing at Canadian law schools. To speculate that that is a reason for someone not being admitted is not only silly and unhelpful, it's not factual.
