Moritz Admitted Students Transcript Policy


Students must submit a final transcript indicating that a degree has been conferred. After admitted students have submitted the first seat deposit, the College’s Office of Admissions instructs all incoming 1L students to submit transcripts by August 1; this instruction is conveyed to students via e-mail.

If a student fails to meet the August 1 deadline, the College’s Office of Admissions will conduct additional outreach, reminding the student of the requirement. The student is then required to provide one of the following two items by August 7: (1) the previously requested transcript, or (2) a written explanation from the undergraduate institution explaining the delayed transcript. If the undergraduate transcript is received by August 7, the student has fulfilled his or her obligation. If the undergraduate transcript is not received by August 7, the College’s Office of Admissions reserves the right to withdraw the student from courses for failure to comply with the transcript requirement.

At student orientation, held the week before fall classes begin, the College’s Office of Admissions connects with any student who has not yet submitted a final transcript and seeks information regarding the status of the final transcript. If the College’s Office of Admissions determines that the student has a compelling reason for the transcript’s delay, it will allow the student to continue orientation and begin classes with an understanding that failure to receive the final transcript by October 1 will result in withdrawal. If the College’s Office of Admissions determines that the student has no compelling reason for the transcript’s delay, it will require submission of the final transcript by the end of orientation with an understanding that failure to receive the final transcript by the end of orientation will result in immediate withdrawal.

In the event a student is to be withdrawn from classes, the College’s Office of Admissions will notify the College’s (1) Assistant Dean of Students and (2) Registrar. The registrar will immediately withdraw students from all classes who have not submitted the required transcript by the end of orientation.
