How do I request a transcript?

How can I check my grades
Students can view their grades for individual assignments in the “My Grades” screen in each Blackboard course. Official course grades and transcripts can only be accessed via My.CU. Finals grades will be available through My.CU within a week after each course ends. My.CU is the same website you use to accept financial aid and update personal information.

What if I have a question about my grade?
Your instructor can answer specific grading questions. In the event that your instructor is unavailable, or the class has ended, you may contact the student services department at email@example.com.
What is the Academic Standing Policy for CU online graduate students?
It is important that every student takes a moment to review the handbook and become familiar with our Academic Standing Policy. Students who do not successfully pass 1 course will be placed on Academic Probation. Failing 2 courses places you at terms for dismissal from the University. You can review the Academic Standing Policy: Concordia University Online - Handbook.
Can I take two classes at once?
No. Concordia University’s online courses are designed to be offered in a specific sequence and build on learning in a logical order. In addition, an important feature of our program is the use of a cohort model through which candidates interact and progress with the same companions and supporters throughout the program’s completion. For these reasons, simultaneous enrollment in two courses is not allowed.
How do I access the online library resources?
Concordia University Online offers many online tools, including full text articles and journal databases. To access the online library go to http://www.cu-portland.edu/academics/library.
What if I need to take time off from my studies?
A student who must request a leave of absence from studies for any reason should contact the Director of Student Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How can I find out more about the American Psychological Association (APA) format required for Discussion Board posts and in the formal writing I do?

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from a University in Canada. Does this degree satisfy the prerequisites of enrollment for your University?
Lindsay Niemeyer, Assistant Director of International Admission, says: “Your Canadian degree may fulfill the requirement of needing a Bachelor’s degree. However you will be responsible for having your transcripts evaluated by a professional evaluation service in order to determine if your degree and grade point will meet our requirements." For a list of acceptable evaluation services, please visit: International Student Admission Requirements.
