IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT TRANSCRIPTS
A complimentary official transcript is automatically generated for every student who completes a DominicanCAonline course. This transcript is mailed via standard US mail to the student’s address WITHIN 3 WEEKS from the date that the University receives your course grade (not the date when the Instructor sends grades).
Please note: If you have taken more than one DominicanCAonline course within the past year, please remember that not all grades for all courses are submitted within the same time frame. So courses that are still in-progress, or courses that are not yet graded, will appear on the transcript without final grades. If your most-recently completed course is crucial for your employer or district, make sure that you time your transcript request in such a way that it includes ALL the final grades you need. We want to save you the time and expense of overnighting records that are still in-process.
