Transcripts From Other Institutions, Copies Ofnext

You are here

Medaille College does not release copies of other institutions’ transcripts.  It is necessary to obtain transcripts directly from the original institution. This includes both college/university and high school transcripts.

Transcripts and all documentation of academic history from other institutions submitted to Medaille College become the property of Medaille College and cannot be returned to students or forwarded to other institutions.  Once received, all academic documents are retained by the Registrar’s Office. Federal policy (FERPA) states that a student has the right to view documents in his or her file. However, the College is not required to provide (or allow the making of) copies of such documents.

Medaille College, along with most colleges and universities, has a policy prohibiting the release of copied academic documentation from other institutions. Stated below are the following reasons behind this policy and common practice:

  • Academic documents from another institution reflect a student’s academic record at that institution at a particular time (like a snapshot) and might be incomplete.  The record may have been added to or changed by the issuing institution after the time of receipt by Medaille College.
  • Current, complete, accurate, and official student records are issued by the transcripting institution. It is a common preference that entities receiving and reviewing academic documents should always reference official academic documents, not copies.
  • Medaille College has no way of knowing whether a student wishes to use a copy of a transcript from another institution to avoid having others see grades or information which may be considered negative (incomplete grades, low grades, etc.).  Students may have an account balance at the issuing institution and may therefore be prevented from obtaining an official transcript until such obligations are met. As a professional courtesy, Medaille College honors the desire of issuing institutions to have official academic documents obtained directly from issuing institutions. Medaille College requests that other institutions refrain from releasing copies of Medaille College transcripts/academic documents found in their student files.
