Fall 2017 Grades, Diplomas, and Transcripts

Fall 2017 Grades

Grades due from faculty: To the Office of the Registrar by 11:59 p.m., Wednesday, December 20, 2017.

Grading process finalized: Friday, December 22, 2017

After the final grade submission date, it takes approximately five business days to “finalize” grades. This includes running such processes as repeats, presidential scholars, incompletes, and academic standing; there are many additional processes that must run to make grades official. During this window, students may be able to see grades appear via Student Center as we begin the grade posting process, but grades are not considered official, official transcripts cannot be released, and degree awarding cannot begin until after the grading process has been finalized.

Fall 2017 Degrees/Diplomas

Once grades have been finalized (see “Fall 2017 Grades” above), the process of clearing degrees can begin. It takes about 6-8 weeks to clear all of the students eligible for graduation this term.

Once the degree has posted, it will immediately appear on both official and unofficial transcripts while the diploma is processed. Diplomas are printed and mailed approximately three weeks after the degree is cleared/posted, beginning in late February and continuing through late March.

"Rush" Degree Review/Posting

If you need your degree posted immediately, please order an official transcript ($4) and add the $10 Expedited “Rush” Handling service.  Be sure to select "Hold until degree is posted”.  Your degree requirements will be reviewed within three business days after we receive your paid request.


Transcripts can be ordered anytime: http://www.humboldt.edu/registrar/transcripts/

Official transcripts are not released during the grade processing period (see “Fall 2017 Grades” above).

Special note: If you wish to have your transcript sent after your Fall 2017 grades have posted or after your degree has been posted (or both), be sure to check the appropriate "Hold Until"  boxes on the transcript request form.
