Transcript Freeze Effective 5/8

Effective Tuesday, May 8, transcript requests cannot be processed until spring semester grades are posted. This applies to ALL requests — from current students, pending graduates, and alumni. Students wishing to have spring semester grades should indicate “Hold for Current Semester Grades” when ordering. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on May 15. Seniors graduating in May 2018 should select “Hold for Current Semester Grades & Degree Posted” to make sure their degree is listed on the transcript. If you do not, you may need to order a second transcript. We anticipate that these transcripts will be processed and forwarded on May 15. Students who are facing academic suspension or dismissal will have their transcripts held until after the process concludes, on or around May 24. Students who are not graduating seniors may continue to order transcripts as usual, but should be aware that delivery will be delayed during this period. Questions or concerns?
