Students may, if desired, print their own grade report from the MySSU site. Also, the Office of the Registrar will, upon request, produce a printed student grade report. Students with questions or problems accessing grades should call (740) 351-4REG (4734) for assistance.
Please contact the Registrar within 30 days of the end of the term if you discover an error with your grade report.
