Transcripts and Grades
To provide the best service possible and to maintain the security of academic records, transcripts may be ordered in the following ways:
Official Electronic Transcripts are ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse. When ordering through NSC, be sure to select Johns Hopkins Arts, Sciences, & Engineering. Your transcript will be sent securely through the NSC (a secure electronic alternative to the traditional paper transcript) in PDF format via email.
NSC charges a service fee per electronic transcript delivery. Any major credit card may be used. Order updates will be emailed to you, or you can check your order status on the NSC website.

Students are not permitted to audit summer courses.
Many schools do not accept a Satisfactory grade for transfer credit. Pre-College Program students and visiting undergraduate students must obtain approval from the Office of Summer and Intersession Programs to change to S/U. A course may not be taken S/U to absolve a grade of F or D, and credits are not granted for S/U courses receiving a final grade of U. A course must be taken S/U to absolve a U in an S/U course. Johns Hopkins undergraduates may take one course S/U per summer.
