An official academic record is the official record of your JCU enrolment. It details:
All subjects studied
Grade Point Average (GPA) for each semester
The overall GPA for your studies
If you have graduated, it will also include the date your award was conferred.
Academic Records are produced according to your current academic status.
If you want your results and/or graduation conferral details to appear on your record, please check your My Results and Graduations tab in eStudent to confirm that the desired details have been released before submitting your application.

Official academic records are printed on blue JCU security paper without alterations or erasures and are certified by the University Registrar. When photocopied or electronically scanned, the word ‘COPY’ appears prominently across the front of the document. The micro-printing security line, which reads ‘James Cook University’ under magnification, is not legible on a copy.
You can obtain an unofficial academic record (listing your subjects and grades) via eStudent:
