From the Student Data node in the navigation menu click on Grades and then Transcripts.  The Student Transcript page will display. Use the Student Search to select the student.

  • Add 1 Record - Click on the Add 1 Record button to add a single transcript record to a student’s transcript.
  • Mass Add Records – provides an interface to add several records to a student’s transcript at once (see the Mass Add Records article for more details)

  • Change a Student's Mark – Click on the Edit icon next to the transcript record that needs to be updated. Click in the Mark field.  Type the new grade mark. Adjust Atmp and Comp credits if appropriate.
  • Change More information - Within Edit mode other transcript information that is collected for reporting purposes can also be updated, such as enrollment information, course citizenship mark, section number and staff ID. 
  • Delete a Course Entry - To delete an entry from Course History click on the Edit icon next to the transcript record that needs to be removed.  Click on the Delete icon and a message will display.  Click on OK and the entry will be deleted.
  • Recording a Waiver of a Graduation Requirement (for example Health) - To add a course to be waived, click on the Edit icon next to the transcript record that needs to be updated and enter X under the Mark column (X must be previously set up as a valid mark).  Enter the correct amount of credits to be waived under the Atmp (attempted) column. Enter 0.00 under Comp (completed) column.  The Graduation Status will reflect this change for this particular student with a decrease in the Credits Required for the subject area that is being waived and an increase of the same number of credits in the Electives Credits Required.
  • Tagging Courses That Have Been Repeated – Click on the Edit icon next to the transcript record that needs to be updated. Select a value from the Repeat Tag (RT) drop down. The values produce the following effects:

Repeat Tag (HIS.RT) 
Credit Attempted
Credit Completed
Count in GPA
Blank entry
2 or N
3 or B
4 or R
5 or A
6 or G

An example why a course will be flagged with the R repeat tag: A student receives a D for a course and has 5.0 credits attempted and 5.0 credits completed. He repeats the same course in summer school to take advantage of the opportunity for a better grade. He receives a B with 5.0 credits attempted and 5.0 credits completed. Tagging the grade record that was repeated with the R repeat tag will count credits attempted but NOT the credits completed. This will ensure that the student's subject area credits are not overstated by 5 credits due to taking the exact same course more than once.

  • College Credit Hours - This field is used for courses with a CRS.CL indicating a college level course (23, or 24). For Dual Credit courses (CL=24) it should ONLY be populated if the student earned college credits IN ADDITION to high school credits for this course.
