Academic Standing on the Official Transcript

  • A student’s current academic standing is shown on the official transcript. For the notation on the official transcript, students are considered in good academic standing if they meet the standards of scholarship by maintaining a quarterly and cumulative grade point average of 2.000 or greater.
  • Academic standing for each individual term is not shown on the official transcript.
  • Minimum progress: “Except when a student has been disqualified from the University, all notations regarding failure to comply with the minimum progress requirement shall be redacted when copies of a student’s transcript are prepared for outside persons or agencies, such as professional or graduate schools.” (DD Reg A552)

Retroactive Actions on the Official Transcript

  • Retroactively withdrawn terms display only the term/year on the official transcript. The notation does not indicate that the withdrawal was retroactive, but instead simply states, “Withdrawn From University.”
  • Retroactively dropped courses do not appear on the official transcript.
