How to Get Secondary or High School Transcript in Nigeria

A secondary school or high school transcript is an official document that contains the compilation of your secondary school results.

The WAEC or NECO result cannot serve as your secondary school transcript. It is different from the SSCE O’level certificate.

Universities and Colleges abroad like the USA, Canada, UK, Russia, Norway, Germany, etc., require your secondary school or high school transcript as part of the admission requirements.

Secondary schools in Nigeria give secondary school transcripts to students who want to study abroad or for other purposes.

It will take you less than one (1) week to get the secondary school transcript.

This post is about the procedures to get your secondary school or high school transcript in Nigeria.

Let me know in the comment section if you have questions or need further clarifications. I would love to hear from you.

    • Hello Faith,

      In your case, you will have to inform the school you are applying to of your predicament.

      They could offer you a waiver for the transcript.

    I schooled in 2 different secondary school. Jss1-3 government school. Sss1-3 private school. But I’ve gotten the transcript for my senior secondary school remaining that of junior secondary but I have my basic education certificate from junior secondary school which is the government sch.. so my question is can I upload the basic education certificate along side with the senior secondary transcript from the private sch. Just to certify and back it up that I truly attended jss and can that basic education certificate also serve as my transcript

    • Hello James,

      I hope you are doing well and having a great day!

      Your Basic Education Certificate cannot stand as a transcript.

      Have you tried to get the transcript from your Junior Secondary School?

      Your best bet is to send a mail to the school you are applying to study of your intention to substitute a part of the transcript with the Basic Education Certificate.

      I am optimistic you would get a green light to go on with the upload.

      Let me know if you have any further questions.

        • Yes, it should but that would be up to the school you applying to for admission.

          Send the admission office a mail.
