One Stop Student Administrative Services

Records and Enrollment

Beginning July 1, 2021 the One Stop assumed some of the functions of the Office of the Registrar. One Stop provides efficient access to records and enrollment, and processes routine requests in a timely manner. The Office of the Registrar continues to service students, faculty and staff who have more complex requests such as degree conferrals, bulk registrations, Dean’s list, diplomas and more. One Stop and the Registrar work together to ensure that all requests are routed to the correct office and are processed accurately and timely.

Transcript FAQs

We cannot fulfill transcript requests for current or former students with outstanding financial obligations owed to the University. You must contact the appropriate office to resolve any outstanding obligations. It is the responsibility of the requestor to inform the registrar's office that the hold has been rectified.

According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), secondary educational institutions must have written permission from the student to release all educational records. This is applicable to all schools that receive Title IV funds from the U.S. Department of Education.

Current Quinnipiac students may generate an unofficial transcript and an enrollment verification letter by following these steps:

  1. Visit Self-Service on MyQ

  2. Click on Academics on the left-hand side, and then Unofficial Transcript

Unofficial transcripts are not available for former Quinnipiac students.  Former students may submit a request to order their transcript using Parchment.

Former Quinnipiac students must complete the transcript request form and indicate how many copies of the unofficial transcript should be sent. Unofficial transcripts cannot be sent electronically due to security concerns and the protection of your student record. Please allow appropriate time when making these requests.

Your grade point average (GPA) is included as part of your academic record. Quinnipiac University does not calculate or provide class rank.

Course descriptions may be found in the academic catalog at catalog.qu.edu.

Third parties, such as a loan provider or insurance company, may use DegreeVerify through the National Student Clearinghouse.
