Important Information Regarding Fall 2018 End of Term Transcript Processing

The Office of the University Registrar will close at 5 p.m. on Friday, December 21, 2018, and will re-open at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, January 2, 2019. All transcript requests submitted during this time will be processed when the office re-opens. You may check the status of your transcript order in Hokie Spa under the transcript and certification menu by clicking "view the status of transcript requests".

Fall 2018 grades and awarded degrees will not be reflected on transcripts until Monday, December 17, 2018. Grades will be available to view in Hokie Spa on Sunday, December 16, 2018.

If you order your transcript BEFORE 5 p.m. Friday, December 14, 2018, AND want your current term grades and/or degree conferral/awarded statement to be reflected, check a “Current Term Completion” (i.e., term grades) or “Degree Completion” (i.e., degree conferral/awarded statement) hold on your order. 

A note about “Current Term Completion” hold: If you order your transcript AFTER 5 p.m. Friday, December 14, 2018, DO NOT check the “Current Term Completion” hold or your transcript will be held for the Winter 2019 semester grades.

A note about “Degree Completion” hold: If you check an order with a “Degree Completion” hold, the transcript will not print until the degree has been awarded. Transcripts are subject to delays based upon final degree confirmation. 

TRANSCRIPTS FOR PICK UP: If you would like to pick up your transcript with Fall 2018 grades and/or degree conferrals reflected, place your order AFTER 5 p.m. Friday, December 14, 2018 with NO HOLDS. Your transcript will be ready for pick up Wednesday, December 19, 2018. 

You may check the status of your transcript order in Hokie Spa under the transcript and certification menu by clicking “view the status of transcript requests”.


Please confirm with the graduate school that your degree has been awarded if you are ordering your transcript without holds. The graduate school is reviewing each degree candidate’s individual record and will conclude the review process based on established deadlines. You can also track your progress on your Degree Checklist within HokieSPA.
