The Academic Record Amend (or correction) procedure regulates requests for academic record inaccuracies submitted to the Office of the University Registrar by currently enrolled or former students regardless of their course level. Adherence to this procedure is intended to help Temple University meet applicable state, federal, and accrediting requirements when amending academic records. Academic records governed by this procedure include registration records, grade records, curriculum records, and degree records for all student levels. Students seeking to correct inaccuracies found in their academic records should consult Temple University’s Policy Regarding Confidentiality of Student Records (policy no. 03.20.11).
What constitutes a record correction?
- Registration - missing a course on a transcript or course appearing on a transcript that should not appear.
- Grades - a grade discrepancy appearing on a transcript. Please note: disagreement over a particular grade should be addressed through the grade grievance procedure for the school/college.
- Curriculum - missing a curriculum record or an incorrect curriculum record, such as a minor, concentration, certificate, etc.
- Degree record - a degree not appearing on the transcript.
