Grades and Transcripts

Grade Reports

Shawnee State University does not mail student grade reports at the end of each academic term. Students are required to access their grades via their MySSU account.

Students may, if desired, print their own grade report from the MySSU site. Also, the Office of the Registrar will, upon request, produce a printed student grade report. Students with questions or problems accessing grades should call (740) 351-3168 for assistance.

Please contact the Registrar within 30 days of the end of the term if you discover an error with your grade report.

Awarding of Credit

Final grades are posted at the end of each semester by the Office of the Registrar. Grades will not be issued orally.

A grade of "F" receives no credit. Students making this grade must repeat the course if credit is to be received.

Grade Point Ratio

Quality points for a course are determined by multiplying the total credit hours by the numerical equivalent of the letter grade received in the course. The formula for calculating grade point ratio is:

Total Quality Points / Total Division Hours = Grade Point Average

Transcripts

A Shawnee State University transcript is the official record of a student's enrollment at Shawnee State. Undergraduate and Graduate transcripts are maintained separately, so when ordering please specify which transcript type. There are three ways to order an official transcript in person, by mail or fax.

Transcript fee

There is no cost for an official Shawnee State University transcript. However, we do limit the number of copies per request or per week to three(3). Please contact the Student Business Center in advance for orders of more than three (740) 351-4357. A rushed transcript (Express Mail) is an $19.99 fee. (International Express Mail) is a cost of $44.00. Express Mail will not deliver to a P.O. Box as the address.

Ordering Transcripts in Person

You are always welcome to visit us and request a transcript. Just come to the Student Business Center located on the second floor of the University Center, between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Monday through Thursday and 9:00 am to 4:30 pm on Friday. Complete a transcript request form and submit it for processing at the Student Business Center.

Ordering By Mail or FAX

Transcript requests are normally processed within three business days after receipt of the request. Please click the Transcript Request Form link, and print the form. Complete all required fields and return it to us via fax (740) 351-3435 or mail using the contact information listed on the bottom of the form.

Delivery Guidelines

Certain institutions that utilize transcripts, such as college admissions offices, require that transcripts be mailed directly to them and refuse hand-carried transcripts. Some also do not accept faxed transcripts. Please be sure to check with the accepting institution to verify whether or not they will accept such methods of delivery.

Processing Delays

Transcripts will NOT be processed if there are existing Holds on the student's account (i.e. financial holds, library holds, etc.). If there are any outstanding holds the request and payment will be mailed back to the student. We do not "hold on" to any requests. Once the hold is removed the student will need to resend his or her request.
