I can't help but ask why Nigeria Universities charge ridiculous amounts for Transcripts. Imagine Uniben Charging 35,000naira to send a transcript to an email address while a UK University is charging below 10,000naira to send it via post.

Indeed, there was a country!

You didn't even mention the amount of stress one will go through to get the unofficial transcript. Having to bribe a long line of school staff to obtain what you worked so hard for.

In a sane country, once you graduate you are meant to have access to your transcript without much hassle. Nigeria must always be different.

And, the funny thing is that they can delay you to the point of losing what you are looking for with the transcript.

Something that could be done without much stress.

my current condition. So frustrating

Whether or not one will need the transcripts, the best thing to do is to apply for it right after you're done with school, applying when you need it, is attracting high BP �

What you apply for after schooling in Nigeria is called Statement of Result. And it is for you. Schools in abroad call it Student copy of transcript. Everytime you apply for admission, good schools require you to order fresh transcripts from all the higher institutions you have attended. Simple as ABC.

You are right, applying for transcript in public Nigerian schools is not easy. However, private schools may be easy. My suggestion is that you get your WES equivalency for all your degrees and stop going to those useless schools. Do the wahala one time and start sending your transcripts from the comfort side of your bedroom.

Then, pray to God to bless you so you dont study again in Nigeria. It is not worth it. Even you lose your certificate in Nigerian public schools, they willl not replace it. Lol. What a funny way of life!!!

Goodluck!

It's really saddening and adding the stress makes it frustrating!

For my case, I had to improvise by converting my transcripts in my school portal to pdf and notarizing them.

It also depends on the receipent uni of the transcript, cause some are rigid and will prefer the transcript to be sent directly from your Alma mater.

I don't know of other Nigerian universities, but UNN transcript is easy to get.
I applied online, paid around 13k via remita and got my soft copy with 10 working days.


My wife paid for her own last year 20k Univ. of Abuja, it was not processed last year because of covid 19 so this year, they said she will pay again that the last year payment has expired.

35k for soft copy of academic transcript is on the high side. Well, the fee that UNN charges for academic transcript is within the range of 12k-14k for soft and hard copies within Nigeria and it's accessible through the varsity's website. Plus, delivery is within 5 working days. That's been my experience with my alma mater.

Cos it's basically a money making opportunity for them. And free, unaccountable money at that.

My UK university charges less than half (with free delivery) of what my Nigerian uni charges for transcrip.
