Feedback requested: Disciplinary notations on transcripts

Last year, AACRAO began its Trending Topic initiative. Aimed at keeping members abreast of current issues or themes that impact them, Trending Topics centralize resources, relevant news, and AACRAO activities around the issue.

With the release of the 2016 Academic Record and Transcript Guide which noted the disciplinary notation change from “Not recommended” to “Optional,” AACRAO introduced another Trending Topic - Disciplinary Notations on Transcripts. This particular topic and its resources are supported by a Work Group. The group was charged to develop guidance for AACRAO members regarding the use of disciplinary notations on transcripts for institutions that are considering the practice, or are required to do so by legislation.

The Work Group recently completed draft guidance and is requesting a review and feedback from the membership. The comment period opened February 27, 2017, and will close March 17, 2017. Final guidance will be published in late April.


Don’t miss this opportunity to support your association and help shape its recommendation on a significant issue facing the nation.
