How To Easily Get Your Transcript To Study Abroad

a transcript

 Processing Transcript in a Public Nigerian University is not easy and can be challenging, however, In a private university, there might be few challenges or no challenges faced compared to that of a public University. Aside from the costly processing fee, delay; an inaccurate transcript is also part of the challenges faced in processing a transcript in Nigeria. 

There’s no detailed explanation that could be attributed to this cause, though, the high cost of transcript processing has been widely rumoured to be a source of revenue for the Institutions. This is against the traditional process in the past whereby such students could apply for such documents, pay directly to the school and pick up the transcripts within a short time.

A Typical Example of the Problematic processes

Many Nigerian universities now make use of consultants to issue electronic and hard-copy mailed transcripts on behalf of their ex-students especially those applying for scholarships or admissions to schools overseas.

For OAU, graduates of the school who required their transcripts now have to apply through the consultant online (ETX) and after paying between N20,500 (for electronic transcripts) and N25,000 (for transcripts to be mailed to institutions abroad), the consultant carries out the process on behalf of the client and ensures the document is sent to the said destinations.

After registering on the electronic portal, and paying the prescribed fees, the ex-student is notified of the different stages of the application process till the document reaches its destination.

Some of the stages span online documentation/approval at the office, the school’s alumni body, the school’s records office, the applicant’s department and the registrar.

The applicant is notified at every stage via email but from the experience of many alumni, the process usually gets delayed or truncated when it gets to the school and in the end, the documents are sent late after specified deadlines or not sent at all.

Due to this form, Many students who had banked on scholarships to study outside the country for their Master’s degree have lost the opportunities to study due to its long period of processing.  For admission the school you are to study in require you to order fresh transcripts (an official certificate of a student’s work, showing courses taken and grades achieved) from all the higher institutions you have attended. which is an essential part of documents.

This development has made many to start afresh from bachelor’s degree in other for them Study abroad leading to a wasted time of years and money

The good news of this is that there is an alternative to this using the World Educational Services (WES)…
