Grades + Transcripts

The Office of the University Registrar provides official transcripts bearing the Cornell University seal and the signature of the University Registrar. The University maintains a single transcript for all students reflecting all courses taken at Cornell, including summer, extramural, undergraduate, professional, and graduate courses. All requests must be submitted by the student or former student. Requests submitted by parents or any unauthorized parties will not be honored. Paper or electronic transcripts can be ordered anytime by current or former students. 

Grades and degrees are posted on your record as they are received. If you wish to see your grades by semester, you can view and print them through Student Center.

Transcript Notation

For conduct matters adjudicated under the Campus Code of Conduct and the Procedures for the Resolution of Reports Against Students Under Policy 6.4, the following will result in a permanent transcript notation:

  • Dismissal after a finding of responsibility,
  • Suspension after a finding of responsibility, and
  • Withdrawal from the institution while such a matter is pending.

A finding of responsibility is a finding made by an appropriate university official or officials in a university proceeding, including as a part of an agreement with the student(s) resolving the conduct matter. The notation is permanent and not subject to any appeal procedures. Only if the underlying finding of responsibility is vacated for any reason will the transcript notation be removed.

The university may also note transcripts pursuant to the procedures set forth in the Code of Academic Integrity.

The university will temporarily note a transcript where a student has been temporarily suspended, when a conduct matter is pending as permitted under applicable policies or procedures, and as otherwise permitted under applicable policies or procedures. Such a temporary notation is not subject to any appeal procedures and will be removed upon resolution of the underlying matter. A permanent notation may be made, as set forth above, upon resolution of the conduct matter.
