Academic records include a history of all course work attempted and completed, grades received, transfer and alternate credit granted, and academic honors awarded. Accessing, copying, transferring, or destroying student academic records must be carried out in strict compliance with applicable federal and state regulations,). All records for applicants who do not enter school are kept for one year. Such records are not covered by FERPA. All academic records for matriculated students, including non-degree-seeking students are kept onsite for a period of at least five years from the last date of attendance.
Transcript of Record
A transcript of record is permanent documentation of a student’s academic record maintained by Post University. A transcript of record generally contains a listing of all courses taken, grades received, honors, and the degree conferred. Post University defines an official transcript as one bearing the seal of Post University and the signature of the Registrar. An unofficial transcript is marked as unofficial and includes verbiage such as Student Copy or Issued to Student. Unofficial transcripts are available to active students through the Student Portal. Inactive students are directed to request transcripts by completing and submitting one of the transcript request forms. Post University may withhold transcripts for failure to meet financial obligations.
Students may have an official transcript mailed to other institutions, prospective employers, or other authorized agencies by completing the Transcript Request form, or by ordering transcripts online.
