Ordering a Transcript / Academic Records 

The University will not issue a transcript that reflects only a part of the student record, nor will it make copies of transcripts on file from other high schools, colleges and universities. It is the student's responsibility to keep all syllabuses from their courses.

We are not able to scan transcripts, diplomas, or any other student records. Students must make arrangements to have the copies sent through postal mail or authorize someone to receive their record. Only AUAF academic records are kept by the university. Other records must be obtained from the originating institution. A notation will be made on all AUAF transcripts confirming that English is the official medium of communication and instruction for all undergraduate and MBA courses taught at AUAF.

How to Order a Transcript at AUAF

There are two ways to obtain a transcript at the American University of Afghanistan. 


Option 1: Unofficial Transcript:

Current students with no STOPs on their account can print their unofficial transcript online through PowerCAMPUS Self-Service. Once you login choose GRADES from the top menu and then Unofficial Transcript. A button on the left will allow you to print your unofficial transcripts of all your completed classes at AUAF. The unofficial transcript will not print courses that are in progress.

Unofficial transcripts can be used to check your academic progress, unofficial evaluation for graduate schools, record keeping, etc.

This process allows you to:

  • Eliminate the need to come to AUAF to place your order.
  • Eliminate the delay created by submitting requests by email.
  • Provide instant access of all of your grades in one document
  • Allow you to print your unofficial transcript request any time day or night.

Option 2: Official Transcript (or unofficial from our office) - student must not have any stops on their record:

Transcripts can be ordered through email. Currently registered students can submit the form in person if school is open. The office is located in the Annex (near BICT) from 8:30am to 4:00pm. Instructions to make payment by wire transfer is listed below. Please fill out the request form in advance and email it to Student Finance at st.finance@auaf.edu.af before submitting the final request through email to the Office of the Registrar (registrar@auaf.edu.af). Payment verification will be needed before a transcript can be issued. Official and unofficial transcripts, when ordered through our office, cost 500 AFS each and is payable to the Student Finance office.

Remember that the student must be the one emailing or dropping off the request or have a letter authorizing a person to drop off the request for the student. Official transcripts can be used for graduate schools, employment reviews, scholarships, visa applications, etc. (Transcript request form can be found at: https://www.auaf.edu.af/media/1193/transcript-request-form.pdf

If you are applying to graduate school or transferring to another university please make sure to ask the admission's office if there is any language requirement. The American University of Afghanistan teaches all academic undergraduate and MBA courses in English since the school opened in 2006. All instruction and student group activities are in English (except for the foreign language courses).

  1. AUAF uses the standard definition for a semester credit hour. It is defined as an amount of work represented in intended learning outcomes and verified by evidence of student achievement that is an institutionally established equivalency that reasonably approximates not less than (1) one hour of classroom or direct faculty instruction and a minimum of two additional hours of student work each week for approximately sixteen weeks for one semester of credit; or
  2. At least an equivalent amount of work as required in paragraph (1) of this definition for other academic activities of instructional delivery and design modes including laboratory work, internships, practical, and other academic work leading to the award of credit hours.

The university uses a letter grading scale that includes, as of Fall 2015 semester, plus and minus letter grades (see charts below). Plus and minus grade are not available for classes taken before Fall 2015. Letter grades are assigned specific numerical quality points (noted below). Grade point averages (GPAs) are calculated on the basis of a 4.0 grading scale. GPAs are calculated on a semester and a cumulative basis. The semester GPA indicates a performance in a particular semester while the cumulative GPA indicates the overall academic performance since enrollment. Students must maintain a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA to remain in good standing. Grades are assigned and counted only for courses taken for credit. Courses taken with an S/U (Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory) or P/F (Pass/Fail) option are not calculated into the GPA. No grade changes are allowed after the first week of the following semester that the original grade was assigned. Once a student graduates their GPA becomes static. No additional courses after graduating will count toward the GPA calculation.

Degree Verification

If a student has been approved for graduation and a degree has been posted to their record (approximately twelve-fifteen weeks after the end of the semester in which the student graduates), the student can order a degree verification. Degree verifications display the degree completed without GPA, course titles or grades and can only be issued once all grades have been posted.

Many offices are involved in facilitating the degree awarding process, taking several weeks after the last day of the semester/session to process the degree in full, and therefore the Office of the Registrar is unable to expedite or rush degree verification letters before all students graduating that semester/session are officially awarded. The Office of the Registrar promptly processes degree verification letters after all campus offices have worked together award degrees.
