An electronic transcript is a certified PDF of the official transcript.
The e-transcript will be transmitted electronically to the recipient, and is intended solely for use by that recipient. The e-transcript is no longer considered official if it is subsequently provided to someone other than the original recipient.
An e-transcript is considered official in PDF format only. Printed e-transcripts will display a watermark notating that they are a Copy of Official Transcript.
The e-transcript is digitally signed and therefore contains special characteristics. The document will reveal a digital certificate that has been applied to the transcript, and for optimal results, it is recommended that the document is viewed with the latest version of Adobe® Acrobat or Adobe® Reader. The digital certificate will appear in a pop-up screen or status bar on the document, display a blue ribbon, and declare that the document was certified by Cleveland State University, with a valid certificate issued by GlobalSign CA for Adobe®. The document certification can be validated by clicking on the Signature Properties of the document.
