Are transcript photocopies appropriate?

I plan to start looking for a new job soon and got my single free transcript from my university after graduation. Would future employers accept a photocopy of the transcript that I have? New copies cost $6 and I'd rather spend much less copying it if I can but I also don't want to seem unprofessional.

This depends on whether transcripts are a hard requirement.

Companies requiring transcripts tend to want sealed versions of them coming from the institution in question to make sure that they have not been tampered with. This is a very common practice in Finance, for example.

On the other hand, photocopies will suffice if you just want to show the hiring manager that you're an all-around over-achiever type, and only use them to pepper your application.

FWIW most people understand that official transcripts cost money and will only expect them if it's an HR policy.
