Upon receipt of a written request, the Registrar is authorized to honor a request for a transcript from any current or former student who is in good financial standing with the College.
In the case of current students, good financial standing means that, even though a bill may be outstanding, in the Controller’s judgment the student is making reasonable efforts to pay bills. There can be no state or federal mandated impoundment of the transcripts.
Good financial standing in the case of former students means that the student owes no payment to the College and there is no state or federal impoundment of the student’s transcript for failure to honor student loan terms. No exception will be made.
Per New York State Legislation Article 129-B, the College is required to make specific notations on the transcripts of students
found responsible of any policy violation that is deemed a violent offense by the Clery Act as a reportable crime.
- Students suspended after a finding of responsibility will receive the following notation on their transcript: "suspended after a finding of responsibility for a code of conduct violation". Such notation will remain for at least one year after the conclusion of the suspension, at which point a suspended student can seek removal of notation by appealing to the Vice President of Student Affairs and Campus Life. Students seeking removal of the notation should contact the Office of the Vice President of Student Affairs and Campus Life.
- Students expelled after a finding will receive the following notation on their transcript: "expelled after a finding of responsibility for a code of conduct violation". Such notation shall not be eligible for removal.
- Students who withdraw pending resolution of alleged violations of this policy will receive the following notation on their transcript: "withdrew with conduct charges pending". Such notations shall not be eligible for removal unless the charges are later resolved.
- If the College vacates a finding of responsibility for any reason, any such transcript notation shall be removed.
