Default ACS Application Documents

On visiting the ACS site, I notice one of the bits of info they require is :

"- The detailed official academic transcript/mark sheets, showing all the subjects/units studied for the qualification/awards obtained. If possible, please obtain details of the percentage of relevant computer content in the course from the appropriate tertiary institution. "

Does this mean I've got to chase my old University lecturers to get these details even though my degree is in Computer Science.
I finished my degree over 10 years ago, so am a little concerned that these details may no longer be available??

What have other people done??

Any help greatly appreciated...
Cheers
Greg.

I'm in exactly the same position, I studied Computing at Glasgow over 10 year ago and I wasn't even aware that such a thing as a Transcript even existed. I went down to the Uni last week & paid £10 to get my Transcript. I haven't ereceived it yet so I've no idea what's on it. I assume that it, plus my degree, should be enough proof but I can't be sure.

It is a little confusing. I'll send them a letter in the first instance, and see what happens.
Thanks for the reply,
Greg.

That is what I did and my uni sent me a breakdown of my course and marks. My degree
was only 4 years ago though, but I would imagine that the uni will have kept some
sort of record.

Did the ACS say these materials should be sent by your university?

Just one thing to remember...

http://www.acs.org.au/static/national/lodgeappn.htm

All qualifications will be verified through the university, students must therefore
grant permission to the university to release this information to the ACS, when
requested.

I completed a degree in computer studies 14 years ago. Never had a transcript though,
so I submitted my application to the ACS in mid Feb without it. I got an email a few
days ago saying they could not process my application without the transcript and that
I have 49 days to submit it or my application will be closed. I've contacted the
university who say they can provide the transcript for £15. Although, prior to my
application I asked them about it and they didn't volunteer the information and just
provided a general cover letter.

I suggest you contact the university administration and ask about student archives.
It won't be lecturers that can formally provide the information.

Interestingly the ACS say they need a copy of my degree certificate, which I did
supply. Makes me wonder about their competence, so I'd better send them another copy!

The ACS are expecting me to supply the documents. There won't be any direct dialogue
between the university and the ACS.
