How to Request an Official Transcript

Angelina College is now partnering with Parchment to send official transcripts.  This will enable students to order transcripts on-line 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  This also allows Angelina College to offer students the ability to have official transcripts sent electronically by .pdf or by mail.  Students have the opportunity to send the transcript to another college, an individual or themselves.

When you click to Order Transcript, you will be directed to the Parchment website where you will first create an account.  You will then be able to submit your transcript order and pay online.  The cost of each transcript is $5.00.

Once the order is completed, you will receive email updates on the progress of your transcript order.

Students needing Community Services (continuing education) transcripts should contact that office at (936)633-5206 for information on ordering their transcript.

Academic Suspension Appeal

Students placed on academic suspension at the end of a term will not be allowed to register for classes until their suspension period (next long semester) has elapsed. The College does have a provision for consideration of students on suspension to enroll before their suspension period has elapsed. The student must submit an appeal letter to the Office of the Registrar prior to the deadline listed in the academic calendar. The student will also have to meet with the Admissions Committee at an assigned day. The committee meets once each semester to hear appeals of students with extenuating conditions. No student will be considered more than once during his/her college career for re-enrollment while in a suspension period.

Letters will be sent to each student that is placed on academic suspension with instructions and deadlines for the appeal process.

 

Non-disclosure of Directory Information

Students wishing to have non-disclosure of Directory Information must submit a request to the Office of the Registrar.

 

Transfer Coursework from Another Institution

An official transcript must be submitted from each college attended before coursework can be accepted.

Only coursework taken from a regionally accredited college will be accepted. The six regional accrediting agencies are as follows:
1.Accrediting Commission for Community and Jr Colleges Western Association of Schools and Colleges
2. Higher Learning Commission
3. Middle State Commission of Higher Education
4. New England Association of Schools and Colleges Commission on Institutions of Higher Education
5. Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission of Colleges
6. WASC Senior College and University Commission

Academic coursework from Accredited Texas Public Institutions will be added to the Angelina College Advising Guide (also known as an unofficial transcript). If there is an established equivalent course, that will be noted on the advising guide. Not all Workforce Education courses are transferable from college to college.

Academic coursework from Accredited Out-of-state and/or Private Colleges will be added to the advising guide. Course descriptions/syllabi must be provided to the Office of the Registrar for evaluation. It is the student’s responsibility to provide the necessary documentation. Courses are evaluated by Associate Deans to determine if the transfer course(s) are equivalent to Angelina College coursework. This process can take several weeks.

Coursework from a Technical, Career or Trade School that is not regionally accredited will not be added to the advising guide, but the student might petition for credit by exam through the AC Testing Office.

Transfer coursework will not appear on the official Angelina College transcript and will not calculate into the cumulative GPA.

Courses that do not have an equivalency, may be used as an elective or substituted for a required course with the written permission of the Associate Dean in which your major is located.

Note: Only freshman and sophomore level courses will transfer to AC. These courses normally start with a “1” or “2”.

Coursework that is measured in quarter hours is NOT equivalent to semester credit hours. It requires 5 quarter hours to earn 3 semester credit hours. 5 QH = 3 1/3 SCH

 

Auditing a Class

Any student, 18 years of age or older, may audit a course by completing the appropriate form in the Office of the Registrar prior to the official census date of the semester (see Academic Calendar). The auditing student may then attend classes but is generally not required to take examinations and is not entitled to earn credit for the audited course. The admission process and tuition and fees are the same for auditing as those for credit enrollment. Once a student chooses to audit a course, they cannot later ask to be changed to receive credit.
