It has been years since Julius Peppers last played a game at the University of North Carolina.

But there has been a transcript that has surfaced on the school’s website that has caused questions, if in fact, that it is the NFL stars transcript. The school removed the transcript and was not allowed to discuss confidential student information, according to the Federal Privacy Laws.

The school would not confirm the partial grade summary, which clearly had Peppers name on it. The transcript surfaced late Sunday night, which showed that Peppers highest grades were in classes in the Department of African and Afro-American Studies.

“Student academic records should never be accessible to the public, and the university is investigating reports of what appears to be a former student transcript on the university’s website,” the school said.

From 2007 to 2011, there was a school investigation, showing 54 Department of African and Afro-American Study students indicating fraud and poor oversight. Football players were a third of the enrollment in these classes, and 58 percent of the football players took these classes.

According to the transcript, he had a 1.824 GPA from the summer of 1998 to the fall of 2001, which was Peppers’ last year with the football team. However, in nine of his 10 classes, Peppers reportedly earned a B-plus, a B, or a B-minus, helping him be eligible for the AFAM classes.

His transcript did not have grades for five classes that he took in the summer or fall of 2001. If this transcript is real, the AFAM would go back further than just 2007, and may go back years prior.
