Grade Reports

Shawnee State University does not mail student grade reports at the end of each academic term. Students are required to access their grades via their MySSU account.

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.

Grade Point Ratio

Quality points for a course are determined by multiplying the total credit hours by the numerical equivalent of the letter grade received in the course. The formula for calculating grade point ratio is:

Total Quality Points / Total Division Hours = Grade Point Average

Delivery Guidelines

Certain institutions that utilize transcripts, such as college admissions offices, require that transcripts be mailed directly to them and refuse hand-carried transcripts. Some also do not accept faxed transcripts. Please be sure to check with the accepting institution to verify whether or not they will accept such methods of delivery.

Processing Delays

Transcripts will NOT be processed if there are existing Holds on the student's account (i.e. financial holds, library holds, etc.). If there are any outstanding holds the request and payment will be mailed back to the student. We do not "hold on" to any requests. Once the hold is removed the student will need to resend his or her request.
