Transcripts & Academic Information


To participate in Commencement, you must have successfully completed, or be enrolled in the semester prior to the ceremony, all course work required for you to complete your degree. A very limited set of exceptions is outlined on page 42 of the current catalog.

Transcripts
 

  • Transcripts will be available after each semester's graduates have been cleared and the degrees are posted to the University's academic records (this is usually accomplished within 4-6 weeks after Commencement).
  • Commencement honors are recalculated after the students' final semester grades are recorded.
  • Where appropriate, the teacher certification and social work certification is posted.
  • Students should request their transcript online through Parchment. For more information, go to www.frostburg.edu/admin/regoff/records/transcript-requests/.
  • Contact the Registrar’s Office at 301-687-4349 for any questions about approval to graduate, transcripts, diplomas, etc.


Diplomas
 

  • Diplomas will be mailed to your permanent address upon confirmation of your completion of all degree requirements (e.g., if you still have incompletes or internship reports yet to file). Usually, diplomas are mailed in late January for December graduates and late June for May graduates.
  • The diploma shows the degree earned--not your major and minor.


Honors
 

  • Eligibility for honors is based on your cumulative grade point average as of the beginning of the semester in which you graduate.
  • Students graduating with honors will receive gold tassels in their cap and gown packet.
  • If you have questions about honors designation, please contact the Registrar's Office.


Organization Cording
 

  • Some organizations provide cording (woven cords of various colors ending in tassels) for their graduating seniors. Cording of recognized student organizations is allowed.
  •  Explanations of cording are provided in the Commencement program at each ceremony.
  • If you have a question about the cording for your organization, contact your organization advisor.


Program Booklets
 

  • Don't worry about taking a program with you. There will be programs pre-set at each graduates seat. The commemorative Commencement program will list each graduate's primary major and hometown. Please note that if you have completed a double major, only the primary major that you identified on your application for graduation will be the discipline listed.
  • The Tassel:  If you are an undergraduate graduating with honors, a gold tassel should also be included in your cap and gown packet, and you will wear the gold tassel instead of the black one.  Eligibility for honors is based on your cumulative GPA prior to the beginning of this semester and the GPAs required will be explained during the ceremony.
