What is the difference between an unofficial and official transcript?

An unofficial transcript is merely an unofficial copy of your academic record. This type of transcript can be used to review your records, verify what classes you have taken, grade point average, etc. An official transcript is an authorized copy of your academic record printed on official security paper, featuring both the Troy University seal and University Registrar's signature. This type of transcript is generally sent directly to an institution and not the student. It is often requested for employment, by other academic institutions, and by certifying bodies.
