Transcript Delays

Allegheny College is currently doing maintenance to the transcript system which has caused an unexpected delay in the processing of electronic and paper transcripts. All transcripts will be processed as soon as the update is complete. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Fall 2021 Registration Update (July 2021)

  • Registration for more than 20 credits requires advisor approval; please complete the Overload Approval Form, which will then be sent to your advisor(s). You may need to meet with your advisor before they can approve the overload. They may also deny the overload.
  • Registration for 22 or more credits requires both your advisor’s approval and permission from the Registrar, who will review the information on the Overload Approval Form along with your academic record and will assess your level of preparedness for the requested overload. You may be required to meet with the Registrar in person, and permission for course overloads may be denied.

Add Authorization will be required for adding courses beginning on Tuesday 24 August.

Transcript Freeze — May 21 through June 2

Effective May 21, transcript requests cannot be processed until spring semester grades are posted. This applies to ALL requests — from current students, pending graduates, and alumni.

If you have a deadline date before or near May 21, 2021, we recommend that you request your transcript(s) prior to May 21; otherwise it will be held until on or around June 2, 2021. 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 or around June 2.

Seniors graduating in May 2021 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 or around June 7, 2021, after the faculty have voted to confer degrees.

Students who are facing academic suspension or dismissal will have their transcripts held until after the process concludes, on or around June 9.

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. Please plan ahead!!

  1. There are multiple add/drop deadlines for Spring 2021!! — January 22 for Module 1, February 2 for full semester senior projects, March 4 for Module 2 and 2A, and April 15 for Module 2B.
  2. There are two overload deadlines for Spring 2021!! — noon on January 21 for Module 1 and noon on March 3 for Module 2.
  3. Seniors: Check your Senior Project Registration!!
  4. Signature Consent vs. Add Authorization in Self-Service — If your course has started, then faculty will use “Add Authorization” to add students; If your course has not started, then either the student can add if the class is open and they are eligible OR faculty will need to use “Signature Consent” to add students.
