Official Law School Grade Reports are prepared and provided by the Law School Registrar. Official Transcripts are provided by the University Registrar. In rare instances, the Law School GPA reflected on the University transcript may be slightly lower than the GPA reflected on your official Law School Grade Report. You should always provide the Official Law School Grade Report from the Law School Registrar to employers.
You are not permitted to estimate letter grades or your overall rank within the first-year class. You may only provide the precise information that faculty members give you concerning your numeric scores in each course.
Any explanation of your numeric scores must be in the context of your section, not the entire first-year class.
Consistent with your obligations under the Law School’s Honor Code Constitution, you must be truthful and accurate in all that you report.
For 2Ls and 3Ls
Applying to Jobs through Direct Contact
Only submit a grade report when requested by the employer.
For most employment purposes, when you are asked to submit a "transcript" or "grade report," the unofficial transcript generated through Athena will be perfectly acceptable. If you are asked for an "official" transcript, contact the Law School Registrar to order one (Hirsch Hall, Room 109 or (706) 542-5123).
Applying to Jobs through Symplicity (OCI or Resume Forward)
When applying to jobs in Symplicity, you must upload an unofficial transcript available in Athena. Follow the instructions for creating a PDF (or Word document) of your grades through Athena. ***Be sure to include the explanatory language on Athena provided by the Law School Registrar.

Never use a transcript from the University Registrar or printed from OASIS when reporting law school grades. For students who went to UGA for some other degree, make sure to send a Law School Grade Report from the Law School Registrar along with the University transcript.
