Visit to VTU(Visvesvaraya Technological University, Jnana Sangama, Belgaum)

First off, this is what I would like to tell anyone who is planning to obtain their transcripts from VTU – apply early!! This would mean a lot of savings – both money and time-wise. For those applying early, there is the option of applying through the college. You could get the necessary info from the Examination Section of the concerned engineering college. You could take receipt of the transcripts in about 5-6 weeks from date of application. However, I dint have the liberty of applying early, so what I did was as follows:Pre-preparations: From what I read on a few blogs, I came to know that Xerox copies of original marks cards have to be submitted along with the application. One blogger had even written that the copies had to be attested by the college principal. Not wanting to take any chances, on the eve of my departure to Belgaum, I coerced my dad to go to my college armed with the originals and copies of the marks cards, and try to get them attested. I was very lucky in that the attestations were done on the same day (it usually doesn’t work that way in my college!!).I also got dad to obtain a DD of the required amount from Bangalore itself, since we did not want to waste time running around for DDs in Belgaum. The DD has to be payable at Belgaum.I had also read that the Registrar – Evaluation (whose signature is mandatory on the transcripts) is not available on all days at the university. Accordingly, I got dad to try and call on the registrar’s office phone number, which was given on the university website, but I got no response. Dad enquired with the regional office in Bangalore, but they too provided him the same number. No response. The date was 28th November. The deadlines for university applications were fast approaching. With no other option left, dad and me decided to leave for Belgaum the same evening. We booked our tickets on the Rani Chennamma Express, scheduled to leave Bangalore at 21:15 hrs.Travel: we reached the railways station at around 20:15 hrs. Ample time left. The rake was yet to be shunted onto the platform. We loitered about here and there, and at around 20:45 hrs, the train was shunted in. Another 5 minutes for the reservation charts to be pasted. We quickly identified S1, entered the coach and claimed our seats. The train departed punctually at 21:15 hrs. We were on our way to Belgaum. There were a couple of school children who were going to Belgaum for a sports-meet. Had some fun chit-chattering with them. I was feeling really sleepy, so I climbed up onto the berth, covered myself with a warm sheet and fell asleep. I was awakened by the T.T.E., who had come to inspect the tickets. Dad showed him the ticket, and I fell into a deep sleep again. The next thing I knew was the train halting with a jerk at Hubli. The date was 29th November, and the time, 06:15. Most of the passengers were still sleeping, so I too closed my eyes and lay quietly. After about 25 minutes, the train slowly departed Hubli station, and within minutes, everybody was up. I woke up dad, and we both came down to our seats and sat down to watch the scenery flash by. The sights of the countryside were especially soothing. Rolling grasslands punctuated by small water-bodies, lush green fields, mountain-tips sparkling in the early-morning sunshine, small patches of human habitation and at intervals, the earth being excavated to lay down a parallel railway line. The morning was beautiful. The train halted at various stations like Dharwar, Alnavar, etc., but no sight of tea-vendors for a long time. Dad and I are accustomed to the morning cup of tea, so we waited anxiously for one. Finally, we spotted a vendor, and bought two cups of elaichi tea from him for Rs. 10. Sipping the steaming tea with the cold wind from the window lashing against the face was a heavenly experience. It was 08:15. Belgaum was fast approaching. Dad and I took turns to watch the baggage while we went to the toilet to freshen up. Soon, the tile factories on the right side of the train, houses, shops, etc., and a busy road on the left (on which, incidentally, we spotted a bus of the university) heralded the arrival of Belgaum. We gathered our luggage and got out of the train. The time was 09:00.One of the blogs that I had read had mentioned a bus-station just opposite the railway station. However, we thought it wise to check with a traffic policeman who we spotted regulating traffic outside the railway station. He pointed us away from the bus-stand, saying that we would get buses from the intersection of the main road. Imagine our consternation, when a policeman at the intersection directed us back to the bus-stand opposite the railway station! We trudged back to the bus – stand and enquired with the station master there, who told us to wait for the bus that goes to “Santhibastawad”. It was here that I met two boys fresh out of college. Safair and Abu had studied at the Don Bosco engineering college in Bangalore, and had come to Belgaum to collect their consolidated marks-cards and provisional degree certificates. We talked for a while, and then dad and I decided to hire an auto to the university. The auto-wallah asked for 100 bucks, and dad asked for seventy. Since the auto-wallah did not understand the word “seventy”, I had to summon up my last reserves of Hindi and said “Saat aur dus”!!. AW grinned at me and said “satthar”? Ok. Soon we were along to the university. We passed the KLE’s Institute of Technology and the Gogte Institute of Technology. Soon the crowded streets gave way to a road lined with trees and thickets on both sides. After a 10-km ride, we reached the university; AW dropped us off in front of the administrative block. The time was 10:00 sharp.Optimum route: at the bus-stand opposite the railway station, if you do not spot any buses that go to VTU, it is better to take a bus to C. B. T(very frequent), and take a bus to VTU from there. AWs fleece you.There were clear pointers as to where the examination section is located(2nd floor), and we went up there in a lift. I entered the examination section and asked the receptionist for an application for transcripts. The receptionist, while giving me the application, informed me that I would not be getting the transcripts that day, since the registrar was not in office. I called up my counselor, who told me not to worry, just submit the application, and return to Bangalore. Accordingly, I filled up the application, attached the attested copies of marks cards, and the DD(Rs. 250 for the first copy, Rs.150 for every subsequent copy, all on a single DD – the rates are subject to change, better to check with VTU before taking a DD), and submitted the same. When dad enquired for the phone number, he was given a totally different number than what is mentioned on the website!! I reproduce the number here for anybody who wishes to call up the registrar. The number is 0831- 2498136. Since we had booked our return journey on the Karnataka Sampark Kranti express that leaves Belgaum at 18:55, we decided to hang around the university and try our luck at the end of the day.We soon located the cafeteria and breakfasted on vegetable rice and ksheera. After breakfast, we settled down under a tree on a bench to pass time till 16:00, at which time we had decided to leave for the railway station. Somehow we passed time till about 13:00, after which we decided to move to a different place. Three more hours to go. We went outside the administrative block and settled down on a patch of grass under a tree. Other visitors like us had already settled down there. Safair and Abu were there too. We had a banana and biscuits that mom had had the sense to pack for us. Dad slept for sometime, while I watched the buses to Santhibastawad go to and fro. Around 15:30, just to try my luck, I went up to the examination section, but the transcripts were not ready. The receptionist promised me that the transcripts would be mailed by the following week. Around 16:15, we took a bus bound for C.B.T. However, since we spotted the railway station on the way, we got down near the station itself. Near the station, we spotted a small restaurant, and we had dosa and tea there. The time was 17:00 hrs. Two hours to go. We settled down on the benches in the railway station. After sometime, when it was announced that our train would arrive on platform 3, we moved to platform 3. During this time, we noticed that activists of a political party were traveling to Bangalore. They first crowded into the Rani Chennamma express, but their leaders directed them to the Sampark Kranti express. These people did not possess reservations, but nevertheless crowded into the reserved compartments, despite repeated requests by their leaders over the P.A system, not to do so. They occupied the berths forcefully, and reacted rudely to anybody who dared question them. Perhaps it was the crowd-psychology – they were making it a point to act rudely, and act boisterously. However, by some stroke of luck, our berths were cleared out and we settled down to sleep by 21:00. However we had not had dinner yet, since the train had not stopped anywhere, and the pantry car had closed down since the time the activists got on. However when the train reached Hubli, there was a large contingent of the Railway Protection Force waiting to receive us. They swarmed on to the train and expelled people without reservations from each reserved coach before meticulously locking and securing the coach. However, we could not purchase any food from Hubli either, since there was a lathi-charge outside. Each time the train moved, somebody would pull the chain, and the train was forced to halt. After a series of such halts, we left Hubli about 45 minutes behind schedule. We had to sate our hunger with a pack of biscuits and water.However, the train made up for lost time, and we reached Yeshwantpur ahead of schedule. We reached home in about 20 minutes and then began the wait for the transcripts.. Hope it doesn’t take more than a week… 🙂



  1. Thanks a lot for the detailed account 🙂 .. It did helped me to prepare for my transcripts.
    Could you let me know on whose name should the DD be drawn ?

  2. Yup.. The DD has to be drawn in the name of: “The Finance Officer, VTU, Belgaum”

  6. hi…just wanted to know if registrar of evaluation is needed to get pdc also n do i need to get transcripts when i get to the university in the US or is it just for application coz some ppl here are taking abt 10 transcripts even after getting admits…thx a lot n on what days is he available?

    Comment by sk — July 1, 2008 @ 1:51 pm | Reply

  7. @Hemant: I guess you have to apply through the examination section of your college. Probably this can be done on your behalf by someone else; better to check with the college.

    @SK: I’m not sure about PDC.. Look, if you’re not in too much of a hurry, you can apply for PDC and transcripts through the examination section of your college.. Transcripts are a must for applying to universities in the US.. I think 2-3 extra copies of transcripts should suffice.. Once you get to the university you MUST produce original marks cards and certificates.. As regarding registrar’s availability, you must call on the phone number mentioned above and check out – there are no fixed days on which he is available.. Hope this answers your query, guys 🙂

  12. Hey Nishanth.. I do not know of any form that’s available on the net for this purpose.. the examination section of your college will have a procedure, and you should ask them about it.. or you could send a DD with a letter stating the purpose directly to Belgaum.. good luck with your transcripts!!

  14. Hey Sourabha.. They claim to send it within a week of getting ur application on file.. in any case, it shud be well within a month.. and it is better to send attested copies of marks cards.. i did it that way.. never know what rules these guys have currently.. anyways, all the best!!

  16. @Gopinath: I dont think you need to get 2nd PUC transcripts.. U can just send copies of the 2nd PUC marks card, and produce the original when u arrive in the US..

      • Hi Priya,

        Do you mean provisional degree certificate or 8th sem marks card? For the PDC, I think there is a form available with the examination section of your college, you just need to fill that up and send it. I don’t remember whether the xerox copies are required, but you can check that with the exam section in your college when you go to submit the PDC application form. Good luck!!

  18. Hi Jayashree,

    I think you need to call VTU and find out the days that the registrar is available. If you go to the university on the day the registrar is available, you may be able to get the transcripts the same day. Good Luck!!

    Are the application form for the transcript available online. I might not be able to go to belgaum….Is there anyway possible for someone else to collect the transcripts for me…

    Comment by Mayank — October 21, 2008 @ 12:28 pm | Reply

  21. Hi Mayank,

    I never found the applications online, but you could write them a letter clearly explaining how many copies you want, the address to which it should be sent to, the DD and attested copies of marks cards attached. And yes, anybody else could collect them on your behalf at belgaum too.. Good luck with your transcripts!!

    Comment by sayan — October 27, 2008 @ 2:00 pm | Reply

  24. hi dude…
    i need a little clarification on the dd amount.

    i called up the registrar he said Rs. 250 for the first copy, Rs.150 for every subsequent copy and i did not understand his english properly

    i am confused…

    my question is …

    now suppose i want to have 6 copies of transcripts for each semester

    how should i calculate my total amount

    for eg: for 1st semeter transcripts
    250 for 1st copy
    and 150 X 5 =750 for other 5 copies
    and a total of 1000 rupees for 1st semester transcripts.

    is that correct?


    a total of 250 for 1-8 semester transcripts(first copy)
    every set of subsequent 1-8 semester transcripts is 150..

    dude please help me… i am going to belgaum on
    5th of november

    i am waiting for your response…

    please …please..please..

    Comment by gopinath — October 31, 2008 @ 1:15 pm | Reply

  25. Hi Gopinath,

    The transcript is a single sheet of paper with the marks of all semesters printed on it. Therefore, your calculation should be as follows:

    1 x 250 = 250
    + 5 x 150 = 750
    = 1000.
    You get all you need for 1000 Rs.
    Did I confuse you further? 🙂

  26. dude..thanks….
    u did not confuse me now….
    u have introduced a new concept ,,,,, just kidding!!!!

    anyways i wasn’t knowing that all semester marks are printed on a single transcript…………that is bit new.. i totally misunderstood the concept before….

    dude where r u currently?, i mean , which school have u joined nw? what r u doing?

  33. Yup thanks a lot. Will check into that. and also for the transcripts do i have to take the DD in denominations of 250 and 150 bucks or say full amount 1000 bucks for 6 transcripts? and also may i kno wat all a transcript contains? i know its a stupid question but haven seen it before thats why:)

    Comment by Bhuvana — November 12, 2008 @ 2:23 pm | Reply

  34. You may take a single DD for the whole amount. From what I remember, a transcript is a single sheet of paper with the marks of all semesters on it, much like a consolidated marks card. It also has a nice little letter that introduces the university and grading patterns to the recipient. Don’t worry, they will give you an extra copy, you can keep that for yourself 🙂

  40. The best way would be to ask your counselor to draft the letter to VTU.. 🙂 or else, u can ask VTU guys for semester-wise transcripts.. if you are going there personally, tell them that you would like the transcripts for each semester separately.. and when u manage doing it, please leave a comment on the procedure!!

    If anyone has an answer to this, please post it as a comment.. would help the others.. 🙂

    Comment by scavenger32 — November 24, 2008 @ 9:56 pm | Reply

  48. Hi guys
    I ve been to Belgaum a couple of days earlier.
    Every thing went on well. As everyone on this blog saying, u need to confirm the registrar’s availability before heading to VTU.
    For that u ll ve to call the registrar’s office before booking ur trip.
    If u can submit all the request forms with the corresponding photocopies by 11AM at the Registrar office, u ll get ur required documents by 4PM or else u can request them to post the documents to ur mailing address which u ll mention in the request form, but it might take a week or ten days.

    Carry everything u ve got (photocopies x 2 sets).
    For those who r applying for consolidated marks cards..carry all the MCs (photocopies) . Calculate ur first attempt totals and the no of attempts u took to clear that particular semester for which u require a consolidated marks card.

    Hereunder are the amounts for which DD is to be drawn favouring
    “The Finance Officer, VTU, Belgaum” payable at BELGAUM

    PDC — 200/-

    Transcripts — 250/- for 1st copy
    150/- for each subsequent copy

    Consolidated MC — 300/- per semester
    (for this u need to submit the photocopies of all the MCs including the FAIL MCs and u should ve cleared all the subjects of that particular semester)

    Single consolidated statement of marks — 500/-
    (for this u need to submit photocopy of 8th sem MC and u should ve cleared all Engg. subjects)

    * Draw separate DD for every individual document.
    However u can draw a single DD for all the semesters consolidated marks cards
    i.e 300 x no. of sems for which con. MC required..
    Same as above in the case of Transcripts also
    eg:- a single DD of Rs.1000 for 6 Transcripts

    Buy DDs at ur home town to save time but make sure that the amount is correct and exact.Otherwise there is State Bank of Mysore in front of VTU admin office which will be open by 10.30 AM.

    For those who r planning a jolly trip…..
    U can accomplish ur work at VTU in a single day (if u r early enough) and u can spend the rest of ur vacation at Goa which is a 250 minute drive from Belgaum, but the road is really horrible.

    Thank u guys.
    Thank u Sreejith.

  51. hey guys, i need a consolidated marks card of my 5h sem and also transcripts. I have applied for the consolidated marks card thru post (sent a copy of 5th sem marks cards along with a letter). its already been a month and i havent yet recieved it. How can i enquire about the status?

    Also, wat difference will a consolidated marks card make with respect to the contents in transcripts? should i get my consolidated MC first and then apply for the transcripts?

    Please advice.

  52. Hi Darshini,
    I think you should call the registrar’s office on the number mentioned in the blog. They would be able to tell you the status of your application. 1 month is a long time. I do not know the exact difference between a consolidated marks card and the transcript, but for most universities, transcripts suffice, you don’t need both. Anyways better to check with the university.

    Good Luck!!

  60. hi darshini….

    with respect to consolidated marks card is concerned,

    imagine that you have 2 marks card for a single semester,that is because u cleared a subject of the semester in 2 attempts,
    a consolidated marks card mentions all the subjects of a given semester, in a single marks card along with the subject for which you had 2 attempts to finish…

    but transcript is a single sheet of paper, that mentions the marks of all the semesters (1-8 semesters) if you have finished the degree or (1-6 semesters) marks if you are in the final year of engineering irrespective of the branch.

    so as you can infer, a consolidated marks card will never have any effect in the transcript information as transcript indicates only the marks and the number of attempts, done to clear the subjects…..

    is this the answer to your question?

      i read ur comment and i have 1 doubt regarding consolidation of marks be franks i have taken 4 attempts to clear a subject and i have lost one fail marks card and the one i it is possible for me to get consolidated marks card by submitting photocopy of other 2 marks cards? please help me…thank you

  61. Thanks for the info Gopinath.

    Yes it is definitely an answer to my question.

    I thought if i could provide my consolidated marks card, for the transcripts, i could have the “number of attempts” not printed on the transcripts. 😉

    So, u suggest i go to VTU for the transcripts without waiting for my consolidated marks card, right?

    Comment by Darshini — December 9, 2008 @ 11:42 am | Reply

  62. Hi Darshini

    The answer to your question is YES.
    You can go to VTU and get your transcripts which most of the foreign universities demand.

    Instead of waiting for your consolidated marks cards you can get ur Transcripts and apply to universities right away.

    The no. of attempts will be printed on the Transcripts but on the consolidated marks cards only the actual semester exam month in which u cleared the subject will be printed for all the subjects.

    Even u can enquire about ur applied cons. mark cards and also take them personally if they are not yet posted.

    But remember to carry necessary proof that u r the one to whom the documents belong, for this college ID will do good and also dont forget to carry all the marks cards (photocopies) including fail marks cards.

    Good Luck.

    Just a question. I need to get my degree certificate attested. Can I initiate this process by post or do I have to physically go to Belgaum? If yes, do you know the postal address and what I need to send besides the DD? I don’t reside in India hence it’s kind of difficult. Do let me know.

    • Hi Fahad,

      My experience has been that you have to physically go to get your certificate copies attested. Also, it need not be done by VTU, you could get it done by the principal of your college; however, you will need to show him the original certificate before getting the copy attested.

  72. Hi Augustborn,
    Nice work it cleared most of my doubts:)

    I suppose to complete my B.E (VTU) on July 2009.And I’m planning to apply for M.E at SA university, Adelaide.Courses will be commenced from feb 15th.So i need to apply as soon as possible..

    1)When do I get my original degree certificate?(Approx month)

    2)When do I get my 8sem original marks card?
    (approx date)

    4)Is it possible for me to get a provisional 8sem marks card as soon as I get my results, in case of 8sem marks card is late?

    3)How provisional degree certificate looks like?
    Is it a simple paper or properly printed certificate like our marks cards?

    waiting for your reply 🙂

    • Hey Divya,
      I give you these answers based on my experience:
      1)Approximately around February-March.
      2) 8th sem original marks card will take as much time as it took for other semesters.
      4) I have not heard of a provisional marks card for 8th sem; you could check witht he examination section of your college, though.
      3) Provisional degree certificate is a proper certificate, though not laminated like the degree certificate or semester marks cards(atleast during my time it was like this).

      Good luck!!

  73. Thank you Augustborn:)
    Do you mean 8sem marks card is released before degree certificate?So When did you get your 8sem marks card ?Did you get it atleast on Oct?
    And what heading they have mentioned on Provisional degree certificate?Is it “Provisional degree certificate” or just “Degree Certificate”…?

    Were you asked to submit original degree certificate when you enter to your uni?(I mean on the first day because if I get my Degree certificate on March then I have a problem on my hand..)

    Comment by Divya — February 15, 2009 @ 2:24 am | Reply

    • Divya,
      Yes, 8th sem marks card is issued way before the degree certificate.. I do not know when it came to the college, i picked it up somewhere in November or December, after they called repeatedly n begged me to collect it 😀 provisional degree certificate mentions clearly that itz a “Provisional Degree Certificate”.. Most universities accept the PDC and allow you to submit the degree certificate when you receive it.. but best to write to the university and ask.. 🙂

    I just finished my BE in mech this year (a month back) and even got my Provisional Degree Certificate by mail too. I even got an admit in University of Kansas, Lawrence and my VISA too. I’m leaving next month.
    Do I need transcripts at this stage, i.e. to show them once I arrive in US?
    (I never used transcripts while submitting all my documents to the US univ. but used photocopies of my marks card attested by my college registrar).
    SO do I need it at this stage? Please help me cause If I don’t need, I can save a trip to belgaum from mysore.

    • @Dhaval: That’s really surprising, since universities rarely admit students without providing their transcripts.. Please look at your admit letter and make sure it is not a provisional admission – meaning you have to show them your transcripts when you arrive here.. If I were you, I would still go ahead and get some transcripts just to be on the safe side.. If at all you decide to shift your university later, you will need them.. better to carry them with you rather than have it sent from home, right? But it’s really your discretion.. 🙂 Do email me if you have any doubts regarding your travel or anything else.. Good luck!!

    I just sent them a mail and they said its better to get the transcript. The only thing mentioned in the e-mail was that I need to show them my original marks sheet of all semester before Dec.15. Nothing about it was mentioned in the acceptance letter accompanying the I-20. Also congratulations on you shifting permanently to California.
    Coming to transcripts: When I enquired in the exam sec. of my college, they said I can apply by mail and I’ll get them soon (I got my PDC by mail within 9-10 days). They gave me an old sheet with the procedure to apply (very old cause the cost of the first copy was still Rs.200/-). According to it I need to send them:
    1.A requisition letter (whats that and addressed to whom?)
    2.Photocopy of semester wise marks sheet.
    3.DD (addressed to the finance officer).
    4.A-4 size envelopes, the number being equal to the number of transcripts required.
    So has any one tried this? If yes how long did it take?

    • @Vijaya: I too faced this problem while applying to universities in the US. One solution would be to check with VTU whether you can pay some fees and have the transcript directly to the university(normally you specify your address and the transcripts are sent to you. Instead, if you can specify the university’s address. This might work, but better to call and check with VTU first). The other option is to tell the university that you are able to send the transcripts in sealed envelopes and ask them if this is acceptable. All the universities that I applied to accepted transcripts in sealed envelopes 🙂

    Is GRE a must for US Universities? How difficult is GRE? What score is normally acceptable? Please give more information on this. I appreciate.

    Comment by ROY — August 11, 2009 @ 12:23 pm | Reply

    • @Roy: As per my experience, GRE is a must for all universities in the US. I have not come across a single university that does not ask for GRE scores. GRE is not very tough – the quantitative section can be cleared with knowledge of high school maths and some 2-3 months of dedicated study will see you through the verbal part. There are different universities that you can apply to, based on your GRE scores – the best universities generally demand a high score. Personally, I think a GRE score >1300 would be preferable. Hope that answers your questions.. good luck!!

  99. hey sreejith, nice work to provide the details buddy.. helped me a lot when i visited vtu, some 2 weeks back. i had applied for consolidated marks cards but as they were busy releasing results they said the database is being updated currently and they wouldnt add extra work to it by accessing now as many students would be logging in now and itll be painfully long to get the reqd detail.. so they would send the consolidated marks card by courier in a week.
    its been 3 weeks to-date and no couriers yet! i tried calling them up but they give evasive answers and no one owns up the responsibility n they ask me to call different numbers from 24968135 – 8139 and on top of it they dont pick up 90% of the time!
    I’m considering going there AGAIN! because i don ve too much choices n in interviews they chck my marks n i ve a back in each sem, so thatll leave a bad impression in the beginning itself, atleast by consolidating i’d make it less obvious while browsing thru it. If u have any other phone numbers probably that might help.. thank u fr ur time

    Can you please provide some info about reaching VTU from bus stand? Any idea about the bus frequency to VTU?
    Thanks 🙂

    • @Sudeep: Don’t remember much, but I think you should go up to the bus stand and ask for buses that go to Santhibastawad/VTU. Buses were not very frequent(about once an hour or so) when I went there 2 yrs ago.. There are a lot of autos around too, if you prefer that.. Good luck!!

  102. Hi,

    I called this number of VTU today (0831-2405468) to check the 8th Sem MC and they told me to call Registrar 0831-2405460. Surprisingly they answered my call! I was told that that are sending the MC within a week. Good Luck Everyone!

  103. Does VTU also convert our percents into GPA? and one more is it necessary to have 8th sem marks card to take transcript as i have not received it till now.Please do reply.

    Comment by Prashant — September 9, 2009 @ 12:55 pm | Reply

    • @Prashanth: I don’t think VTU converts percentages into GPA. If you are applying to universities/institutions that require GPA, they will do the conversion themselves. Each institution has a different scale for conversion. Not sure about your second question – better to check with VTU.. Good luck!!

  109. I really need lots of doubts to be clarified. Please help me.

    Graduated in july 2009

    I’ve given GRE, got 1420 and will be giving TOEFL around 18th Oct. I live in Delhi but did my engg from New Horizon college of engg, Bangalore, which comes under VTU.

    I am planning to go to Bangalore in 1st week November to get the LORs done.

    1.I heard that the form for transcript doesnt ask for the number of transcripts required. So, how do i get 6 copies??

    2.If I go to Bangalore and fill up the form for transcripts, according to people on the net it may even take a month for it to be mailed. So, I may get it by december 1st week. It’ll be quite late. What’s you opinion?

    2. What about provisional degree? Required? how many copies?

    3. Or should I skip all this wait, muster up my courage and go to Belgaum and get it done? How many days would I need in Belgaum, if that’s the case?

    4. Any other stuff needed from college?

    I know its a lot of doubts, but I have nowhere else to get them clarified. Kindly help

    Thanks in advance

    • @Anoop:
      1) I don’t remember exactly, but I do think the form asks how many copies you want. In any case, this is straightforward, because I got 10 copies made and I don’t remember facing any difficulties.
      2) Yes, mailing from Bangalore might make it late. Better to call up VTU in Belgaum, ask when the registrar will be available and then go to Belgaum and get it done(you will get it on the same day). However, be prepared to stay in Belgaum for a couple of days.
      3) I think they issue just one copy of the PDC(pls clarify with VTU/your college). I xeroxed the PDC and got the copies attested by the principal.
      4) Going to Belgaum seems to be the best option. Like I said, if the registrar is available, you will get the transcripts on the same day.
      5) I don’t think you would need anything from college. Don’t forget your marks card copies/DD though.

      Hope this clarifies your doubts to some extent. Good luck!!

    Could you plz tell me which marks are mentioned in consolidated marks card and Transcript respectively.

    1)Is it first attempt marks or the marks you obtained when you cleared that subject?
    2)And what about the total marks ?
    3) what is the single consolidated marks card(which we have to pay 500)?What they have mentioned in it?And the difference between transcript and this?

    And if you can plz post some scaned photos of those marks cards .So we will come to know exactly how it looks like(you can erase your personal data :-)… )

    plz take your time to clear my doubts..

      1) I have no idea on this one. I never had any re-attempts, so don’t know 🙂
      2) Ditto
      3) Consolidated marks card is essentially where all your subject marks for all sems are on a single sheet. The transcript is much the same too, except that you can get many original transcripts. A copy of the transcript is generally invalid. I THINK.. 🙂
      4) I never applied for a consolidated marks card, just got the transcripts done..

      Good luck..

      Comment by augustborn — October 20, 2009 @ 11:19 pm | Reply

      • Consolidated marks card is a merged marks card of first attempt marks card and second attempt marks card(where only second attempt marks are present). The final one would contain the second attempt marks, BUT there will small text below marks “second attemp”

    • @Liah:
      1) PDC just mentions that you have completed the course and that the degree WILL BE CONFERRED on you on the graduation day. Basically you use it until you get your degree certificate. No idea whether you can get it in Belgaum in a single day. Do call VTU and check.
      2) No idea on marks card. Check with VTU.
      3) For consolidated marks card, don’t know whether it is completely necessary, but better to take attested photocopies.. Better than facing trouble in Belgaum, right?

      Hope this helps..

I don’t think there’s any need for an authorization letter, either. And though I’ve heard of people getting transcripts done with unattested copies of marks cards, I think it is safe to get them attested. Better to call up VTU and clarify, though. Good luck!!

  119. Hey All,

    The past 72 hours have changed the little good opinion that I had about the university that we studied in. The name Visvesvaraya has been spoiled. If he were alive today, he would have asked them to change the name of the university to something else. It cant be more horrible than this. People say that Bangalore University is useless. I claim that ours is 100 times more horrible than BU.

    I got to the VTU site to find contact information. Found a number and tried calling it. The guy who answered told me that the info that I need can be provided by the exam section and gave me 4 different numbers. I have called all of them more than 30 times each – totalling up to more than 120 calls. Nobody has picked my call till now. I called the first number again yesterday and told him about this. The answer that I got was this “You have to call the exam section!!!”. If these guys are normal human beings, they’l understand that nobody is picking calls on those 4 numbers. The idiot finally gave me another number this time and asked me to call on that.

    I just finished a call now and am writing this mail. The person told me to talk to exam section and that the number I had called was not the right one. This fellow if I am not wrong is the Registrar Evaluation, VTU. He has no respect for other people. When I told him that I have been calling the 4 numbers since monday, he told me to stop lying and hung up the call. When I called the first number again, that idiot told me to contact the EXAM SECTION. Are these people playing with us? Havent we paid money for our education? Has VTU not profited from all the money that they have taken from us? Is it wrong to ask for info? Is this the state of the university? Is it so low?

    What is the best thing that we can do in such cases??? CONTACT THE EXAM SECTION TILL SOMEONE FINALLY DECIDES TO PICK UP???

I called up the regional office in Bangalore since that is where I stay and that was the last option I had before talking to the administration department at college. Though I got the info, the call was equally horrible. I tried explaining to them what had happened but the reply I got was this “Don’t explain all that to me!!!”.

        I told this to many people I know. 95% of them had only one thing to say…”Adjust and move on. It happens”.

  120. Hello,

    @Sreejith – your doing a fantastic job! keep it up!

    I am planning to study in the UK and got admits in 3 of the univ’s.
    I applied for Consolidated marks cards on Aug 12 and received it on Oct 30. According to my college, Atria Inst of Tech, Bangalore, people in exam section told me CMC’s will be available within a month or max 1 month! On the contrary, I received it just before 90 days! I forgot to ask my counsellor about the PDC and even got unconditional offer from three univ’s. Now in order to apply for VISA in UK, my counsellor told me that PDC is mandatory. I feel sorry now as I have only about 15 days time to apply for the VISA, I have no other option other than a trip to Belgaum.

    In my college, I asked exam section, they told me to visit Belgaum instead of waiting. They told me I would receive the PDC same day.

    I have CMC’s so my query is that do I also require transcripts at any stage, or CMC’s will suffice?
    Do I require any other documents, transcripts or marksheets as I am planning a trip to Belgaum soon?

    Thanks a lot in advance!
    You guys are doing wonderful job!

    • @Karthik: Thank you 🙂 Congrats on your admits buddy.. way to go!! Don’t worry about the pdc and cmc.. you have 15 days right, just go to belgaum and get it. I’m not sure whether you will require transcripts, but if I were you, I would get 2 copies of the transcripts, just to be on the safe side!! For transcripts, you need to take along attested copies of your marks cards. On the other hand, don’t despair if you don’t get transcripts – most universities will oblige if you produce original marks cards.. you will need transcripts when applying for jobs, etc. abroad.. Good luck and congrats again!!

  121. Thank you buddy!!:) As per your advice, I will get two transcripts.
    Official transcript costs Rs 250
    and additional copy – 150
    Provisional degree certificate – 200
    Am I correct?
    Two transcripts would be sufficient right? I am not applying to any of the universities.
    Is there any other transcript or sheets available in VTU that I may require? 😀
    I got to be safe atleast this time, dont mind asking this again:)

    Due to my negligence, I did not enquire about the PDC before. It is a pain VTU does not have any branch office (atleast to provide transcripts) in important cities like Bangalore. Just to receive a transcript one has to travel all the way to Belgaum! It is high time they setup and behave responsibly.
    I will call and find out if the registrar is available before going to Belgaum.
    Will share my experiences 😀
    Thanks a lot for your suggestion!!

  128. Hi,

    I have few queries regarding transcripts.
    I had overall 6 backlogs in engineering 3rd,4th and 5th semesters(2 backs in each semester).

    I had applied as soon as i cleared during the next semesters and already have consolidated marks card for 3rd , 4th and 5th semesters with me.

    So my query is now while applying for a transcript should i insert these 3 Consolidated marks card in between the photocopies from(1st to 8th sem)and get attested from principal and then send it by post to VTU or

    I should insert the old marks cards(3rd,4th,5th-regular ones i.e when i recived a back showing “FL”).PLease let me know which marks will be shown i n the transcript even though the no of attempts to clear will be shown.

    Also do i need to take these—-Single consolidated statement of marks — 500/-
    (for this u need to submit photocopy of 8th sem MC and u should ve cleared all Engg. subjects)-Please explain what is these and is it required to apply for univeristes?

    IF i send the photocopies and DD through post through college how many days do u need to receive transcripts?

    Best regards,

    • @Maithry: No idea what you mean by “degree certificate transcript”. Did you mean the provisional degree certificate? If so, my guess is that you have to apply seperately. No idea how long they take to send things by post. hope you get it at the earliest, good luck!!

  133. Hi Sreejith, Nice description of ur journey. May i know whether our signature is required on the “Application for transcript” at VTU Belgaum. I ask this as i would not be personally going there to VTU Belgaum, My brother would be travelling. So is it enough that i send the following documents with him:

    1)All Semester marks cards
    2)Cover letter(which states the requisition of Official Transcripts)

    or my personal presence is mandatory there?
    Please let me know.

    Comment by chaitanya — December 20, 2009 @ 12:18 am | Reply

    • @Chaitanya: I think you need to send the attested copies of all your semester marks cards.. As long as your brother has attested copies of marks cards, I think it is ok even if you are not physically present(I’m not sure about this).. maybe just to be on the safe side, you can write an authorization letter and send it along.. your brother can produce the authorization letter if they say your presence is mandatory.. 🙂

  134. Hi Sreejith,
    I’m little confused.
    1.Can we obtain pdc before we get 8sem marks card?And what are the documents required?

    2.As I know you got you transcript on nov?But you have mentioned you got our 8 sem marks card on dec.So didn’t you need 8sem MC while applying for transcript??

    Comment by NIthesh — December 26, 2009 @ 8:39 pm | Reply

    • @Nithesh: I remember receiving the pdc as soon as the 8th sem results were declared, so that means I got the pdc much before I got the 8th sem marks cards.
      As for the transcripts, I received my 8th sem MC in december 2006 whereas I applied and got my transcripts in November 2007. I think you will receive transcripts for all semesters for which results have been declared..

      I have not seen a consolidated marks card, but I can tell you what is there on the transcript. On one sheet, the marks obtained on all the semesters is recorded. On the next sheet, there is a note stating that VTU has English as medium of instruction, there is no GPA system, etc etc. Do ask if you want to see a copy of the transcript 🙂

    • @Yamini: When my university asked for official individual marks cards, I mailed/called them and explained that VTU does not give official individual marks card and I could send attested copies of the semester marks cards, and show them the original marks cards when I arrived in the US. They agreed, so I got the copies attested by the college prinicipal and sent it. You call check with GMU whether this is acceptable to them. Good luck!!

    Comment by Smitha — April 1, 2010 @ 4:15 am | Reply

    • @Smitha: I’m not sure what you mean by “consolidation of marks cards for three subjects marks”. From what I know, the consolidated marks card will contain marks of all semesters on a single sheet. I’m sure VTU responds to mailed requests for transcripts and CMCs, but I’m not sure whether they would mail it internationally.
      Also not sure about the fees or the exact procedure. A good solution would be to call up VTU on the numbers mentioned in the comments section, or having somebody in India call them up or go to the regional office and enquire. Good luck!!

    Comment by Bhoomi — June 10, 2010 @ 12:14 am | Reply

    • @Bhoomi: If I remember correctly, this is the how it goes: If you go to belgaum and apply for transcripts, they will issue transcripts for all semesters for which results have been declared. If the 8th sem results have been declared, you will get the PDC too. IF the registrar is available, I think you can get both on the same day. Just make sure that you submit your application in the morning itself. When you go to belgaum, remember to take copies of all your marks card, and the result sheet for semesters for which you dont have a marks card yet. I think you will get PDC only after the results are out; so if I were you, I would apply for transcripts and PDC together after the 8th sem results are out. Hope this answers your question, good luck!!

    • @Rahul: I’m not sure whether you need to provide ALL the xerox copies. Try applying for the full transcript with the xerox copies that you have. Maybe you could try calling up VTU and enquire too. Good luck!!

  170. hi i completed my 8th sem recently. just wanna know what exactly i need to take with me when i go to VTU to get PDC. i vent received 7th and 8 th sem marks card. so i need to take with me xerox of all other marks cards? should these be attested ?if yes by college principal? am aware of the dd, amount, and application ther anything else?
    am not able to contact d registrar evaluation. are there any fixed days he s available?

    Comment by Asif — July 13, 2010 @ 8:32 am | Reply

    • @Asif: I don’t have much idea regarding PDC. Other than DD, amount and application for, I think you need to carry the xerox copies of marks cards. It’s safer to get them attested by the college principal – you don’t want to waste a trip to Belgaum, right? Good luck!! And yes, keep trying the phone. Somewhere in the comments here, somebody has left more telephone numbers, try them all. As far as I know, there are no fixed days that the registrar is available.

  183. Hi augustborn,

    I completed my BE Mechanical in June 2010. Now I am thinking of applying to VTU for consolidated marks card and PDC. I had 1 back each in 3,4,5,6 sem. I have cleared everything in the next subsequent attempt. Now how will the consolidated marks card look for me. Will there be double entry of the subjects i failed or the final pass marks will be entered for every sem?

    For PDC is 1-8 sem aggregate or 5-8 sem aggregate considered?

    I had applied for PDC a month ago. I have the confirmation that it has reached VTU (got speed post acknowledgement).
    Still I am waiting for it.
    And now I am in a hurry to get my PDC for the job in Wipro.
    I called VTU, they said they had sent it to my address long ago.
    What should I do now? If I go to Belgaum, will they provide another?

    Please help… Is there a possibility to get the PDC via email?

Do call VTU beforehand to ask whether you can apply for another PDC(since you have already applied for one before), what days the registrar will be avaialable, etc. Good luck!!

    2. Is it possible to make a Consolidated marks card of my 5th and 6th sem now i.e before i get the regular marks card in the passed subjects.?

    3. Because of this I have not got my 8th sem marks cards also, while all my batch mates have got it. Can u tell me if i will be able to get my 8th sem marks card also if i go to VTU Belgaum. Kindly guide…

    Comment by suresh babu — November 23, 2010 @ 9:55 am | Reply

    • @Suresh Babu: The procedure is mentioned in the blog post. Read it carefully. Anyways, here is the recommended procedure:
      1) Telephone ahead and make sure that the registrar is available on the day that you are planning to be in Belgaum.
      2) Make xerox copies of all your marks cards and get them attested.
      3) Take a DD for the required amount, depending on the number of transcripts you require.
      4) Plan to reach the university early as soon as it opens.
      5) Take the application form from the reception, fill it out, submit it with DD and pray that you get your transcripts on the same day 😀

      Good luck!!

  197. Hey Guys,

    This is Poornima. The blog posted is really very useful for new students and people who are looking to get information about the transcripts. Thanks alot Sreejith.
    I have few questions to ask. I live in US currently and want to apply for the Universities in US.I would like to know how to apply for the transcripts from here?I was thinking of asking my dad to mail to the VTU Registrar.Is it a better option? Also, I wanted to know how many copies of marks card should I have to send via post along with the application. Does anyone has a format for the application. Searching online I was able to find this pdf link for the application ->”“. Is this format right.because I was not able to find a pdf on VTU website. Also, I have another question, how long are these transcripts valid for? Do u have any idea?

    Thanks in Advance,

    Comment by Poornima — November 30, 2010 @ 11:42 pm | Reply

    • @Poornima: Thanks a ton for sharing the link!

      1) Yes, I think the format is right, because I think it is the same form that I filled out when I went to VTU Belgaum. HOWEVER, I don’t know how much time it might take, how would you know whether your application was lost in the mail(and all the other problems that could occur :P). If I were you, I would get somebody to go to Belgaum(on a day that the registrar is available) and collect the transcripts by hand – much faster that way(and you KNOW that your application was received).

      2) I think a single copy of your attested marks cards should be enough, regardless of the number of transcripts you are requesting for.

      3) I think the transcripts are valid forever, as long as the envelope is unopened. I carried some transcripts when I came to the US in 2008 and I used one last month. No problem.

      Hope this helps you a little. Good luck!

      If you were asking about a provisional degree certificate, you may either fill up the form and mail it to VTU Belgaum or collect it in person. Here is the application form: .

    Comment by chanaveer — January 25, 2011 @ 7:10 pm | Reply

    • @Chanaveer: My guess is that the consolidated marks card will mention the current marks for all sems. Therefore, if the results for your backlogs are declared, I would expect the new marks(also? ) to be mentioned in the consolidated marks card. But, why do you want a consolidated marks card in your 7th sem? Won’t it be better to have the marks from 1st to 8th sem in the same marks card(in that case, you could just apply after your 8th sem results are declared).

Congratulations on getting placed. The recruitment guys would have checked your aggregates before giving you an offer, right? In that case, there is nothing to worry.

      • Augustborn I asked several times wt was the format of individual consolidated marks cards[semester wise] but nobody was knowing exact answer.Finally I went to Belgum and got my CMCs.CMC mentions ur second or third attempt marks and in front of that they mention the date u passed.[Dec 2010..etc].But your final total marks would be the first attempt total marks .They clearly mention the ‘first attempt total’.And ur class is second class.They dont mention how many attempts u took.But anybody can calculate…Hop this help

  225. repost: plz help me out with this

    I have few doubts and expect that it will get cleared here –
    1.Will they add 2nd attempt marks in total marks mentioned in transcript ? or would the total marks remain the same as that of first attempt.
    2. When companies call for placement and have a requirement ( ex.70% ), will they consider our 2nd attempt marks while calculating the percentage or would just consider the first attempt marks.

    • @bestfriend:

      1) I have no idea about the 2nd attempt marks since I had no 2nd attempts. Maybe somebody else that is reading the comments here, will respond.
      2) Company requirements are entirely dependent on the respective HRs. You would have to ask them.

      Good luck!

  226. Hi,

    I’m in US and I have applied for MS Degree in San Jose state University & I have submitted all my documents i.e All the 8 semesters Marks Sheet ,Final Degree Certifiate .But when checked for the status it says that the documents are Incomplete & when I dropped them a mail regarding this they are asking me to do the following
    1. Final degree certificate copy attested by your university or college (we have received an unofficial copy)
    2. Bachelor’s mark sheets attested copies (we have received unofficial copies)

    I really don’t understand what this means? Can anyone suggest me on this,since the deadline for Spring 2012 is Oct 15th I’m really tensed now!

    Thank you,

    • @Shruthi:

      I presume you submitted xerox copies, without the attestation? They are probably expecting xerox copies to be signed/sealed by your university registrar/college principal.

      A similar thing happened to me, so I just took the originals of the degree certificate and marks cards to the admissions office and they verified it right there(I explained that attestation would not be possible since the originals were with me and I was already in the US).

      Good luck!!

        Thanks a lot for the reply man! Yeah,I’ve submitted the xerox copy .Do I need to send them the originals?

        Comment by Shruthi — September 27, 2011 @ 11:30 pm

      • @Shruthi:

        Never “send” any original certificates. You can take them with you personally to the admissions office, get it verified in your presence and bring them back with you..

        Comment by augustborn — September 27, 2011 @ 11:32 pm

  227. Thank you for informing me! I’ll take the original document to the university & once verified will get it back along .Really your comments helps a lot.I’ve gone thru the comments above many were answered by you.I appreciate it .By the way which university are you in?

  230. Hi augustborn,

    I’m planning to apply for fall 2012. i’ll be ready with all the docs required by next month. would it be too late by then? as per my knowledge the deadline for most of the univsersities is december. my packets would reach the uni’s by jan i guess.

  232. Excellent Blog!. I have couple of questions since Sreejith ur at US:

    1. Are the universities at U.S recognizing the transcripts issued by VTU, as many candidates doing education at U.S seek this help by
    2. Is my MBA at VTU recognized to apply for companies at US? (any idea)
    3. I heard there is an external office at Bengaluru to help on this issues for transcripts recently. Is it true anubody, any validity on this news?

    Comment by Hebson — December 7, 2011 @ 4:50 am | Reply

    • @Hebson:

      1) U. S. universities do recognize transcripts issued by VTU, though many universities use external agencies like WES to really understand the percentage system and how they relate to the GPA system, etc.
      2) Nowadays, the trend is that US companies mostly hire people with US degrees. Of course, degrees at one of the IITs or IIMs may be great. Also, there may be exceptions.
      3) I heard that too, unfortunately no idea whether this is true.

      Good luck!

With this my convocation and hence the degree certificate has been help up and i think its going to happen only during Jan 2012. I have written GRE and want to apply to universities in CA, US. I have already gt my transcripts and PDC. Do you know when i may get my original degree certificate and until when my PDC will hold good in foreign universities?

    1. i want the consolidated marks card,and am planning to go to belgaum directly on fri will the office be opened on saturday ? and will i get the marks card on tat day??

    2. i saw in the application form it says we need principal seal and signature,as am going directly to vtu do i need the principal’s signature???

    thank you

    Comment by arun — February 23, 2012 @ 4:19 pm | Reply

    • @Arun: Your best option would be to call up VTU on the listed numbers and check whether they are open on Saturday, and whether they would issue the CMC on the same day. If the application form says you need the principal’s sign and seal, you probably do need it. Better not to take a chance when you are travelling all the way to Belgaum. Good luck!
