Welcome New Vice Provost/Dean of Students

Effective December 1, 2011, Fred Siegel was named the new Vice Provost for Enrollment Management and Student Services/Dean of Students at CGU.  Fred hails from The George Washington University, where he was Associate Vice President and Chief Administration Officer.  Information on the Student Affairs page is in the process of being updated.


Online Transcript Ordering

The Registrar's Office has implemented online transcript ordering through the National Student Clearinghouse, which currently provides our online degree and enrollment verification services.  Students and former students may submit orders 24/7, although requests are processed during normal business hours at CGU.  Features of the service include the following.

  • Payment.  A major credit card is required for payment.  Credit cards are not charged, however, until your transcript order is processed.
  • Delivery Options.  Transcripts are mailed through US Postal Services.  Expedited delivery services are available with payment of an additional fee--$20 to a US domestic address or $60 to an international destination.  Expedited delivery services are selected by CGU Mail & Duplication Services and may include Federal Express, US Priority Mail, or US Express Mail.
  • Supplementary Documentation.  If submission of your transcript to any entity requires that other documentation be attached, you may upload up to two documents through this online service to accompany your transcript.
  • Holds.  If you have an outstanding obligation to the University, your order will not be processed.  You will be notified if your order cannot be processed.

Orders are submitted through CGU's unique link or to www.getmytranscript.com.  Transcripts ordered online are $10 each.  Other transcript ordering options, detailed on the Request Transcripts page, continue to be available.

All requests for transcripts are processed in compliance with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).


Original Documents from Your Student File

As Student Affairs embarks on a project to convert its operations to a paperless medium, the Registrar's Office would like to make certain documents from your file available for you to reclaim.  Documents include original transcripts, certifications, and evaluations, especially those from international institutions that are often difficult to obtain or replace.  Letters of recommendation are NOT available through this process.

Complete details, requirements, procedures, and the request form are available from our Reclaiming Original Documents from Your Student Records page.

Note that your permanent record at CGU is your academic transcript.  Files of supporting documents are retained for a period of five years after your last semester of enrollment.  Documents that have been destroyed per these retention policies are no longer available from CGU.


Your Published Dissertation/Thesis

What happens to your dissertation or thesis after you submit it for publication or archiving?  Manuscripts with embargos are not available, of course, but if you placed no restrictions, who is accessing your work?

For those of you interested in the life of your dissertation or thesis after it is sent to ProQuest/UMI for publication, the Center for Digital Initiatives at The Claremont Colleges Libraries makes a number of services available to you through Scholarship@Claremont.  For more information, consult our page on Your Published Dissertation/Thesis.
