Ordering a Transcript / Academic Records 

Students have access to an unofficial copy of their transcript via their PowerCampus Self-serve account. For those who require an official transcript, students can email studentrecords@auaf.edu.af to complete the temporary eform. Prior to submitting this request, please be sure you have processed the required 500 AFN fee for each copy you request. It is the same fee for paper copies as it is for electronic. The bank wire information may be found below with detailed instructions. Please allow 3-5 business for processing requests. Please note that transcripts will not be issued to students who have disciplinary or financial holds on their records.

If you are sending a transcript to another University, the AUAF Registrar’s Office will send the official transcript directly to the receiving institution and you will be notified once this is done. 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.

Transcripts issued directly to the student will indicate this on the transcript. Only AUAF academic records are kept by the university. Other records must be obtained from the originating institution. 

Students will be notified by email upon completion of processing their request so that they may make arrangements for pick up in person or we can arrange for the courier of their documents at an additional fee. 

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 can print their unofficial transcript online through PowerCAMPUS Self-Service. Once you log in, select '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. Please note that student's with 'stops' on their account will not be able to access their unofficial transcript until they have reconciled their account and the 'stop' removed.  

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 to all of your grades in one document
  • Allow you to print your unofficial transcript request any time day or night.

Option 2: Official Transcript

Transcripts may be ordered through email or in-person during open office hours from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. Instructions to make payment by wire transfer are listed below. Please fill out the request form provided by studentrecords@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 are payable to the Student Finance office.

Remember that the student must be the one emailing or dropping off the request. 

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).

AUAF GRADING SYSTEM

The university uses a letter grading scale that includes, as of the Fall 2015 semester, plus and minus letter grades (see charts below). Plus and minus grades 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 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 a 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 to award degrees.
