Once you have registered and your admission file is complete, your academic records are permanently kept on file in the Registrar’s Office. Each student file contains the following:
- Application, undergraduate and graduate transcripts, (Recommendation letters are used for admission purposes only and are not part of the permanent student file)
- All internship/practicum verification sheets (V-sheets) with faculty evaluations of your learning
- SIS contracts
- Results of academic reviews
- Waivers of course requirements
- Any additional information or materials the student, department, or administrative offices consider appropriate to have in the file
A complete academic transcript of all courses for which a student is registered is recorded in a computerized database in the Registrar’s Office. See information about requesting a transcript.
As an Antioch student you have full and complete access to your own records and may review them by contacting the Registrar. Under no circumstances, however, may you remove or alter any of the contents. Antioch faculty, and administrators, as well as members of official accrediting agencies, also have access to all academic records so that they may effectively fulfill their responsibilities to students and the institution. You may obtain copies of anything in your file except transcripts from other universities. Transcripts from other schools must be obtained directly from that school.
Students may view their Antioch University New England cumulative academic credit history at any time via myAntioch.
