A transcript is an official record of a student's entire tenure at SFA. It reflects all coursework and grades per term and academic status is considered "good" with eligibility to return unless noted.
Students first enrolled fall 1995 - present will have a computer-generated transcript.
Course numbering system
SFA courses taken fall 2020 and later follow the Texas Common Core Number System of a four-digit subject prefix and four-digit course number.
The academic level is indicated by the first digit in the course number:
- 1000 level: Freshman or first-year courses
- 2000 level: Sophomore or second-year courses
- 3000 level: Junior or third-year courses
- 4000 level: Senior or fourth-year courses
- 5000 level: Graduate courses
- 6000 level: Doctoral courses
Prior to fall 2020, courses were assigned a three-digit subject prefix and three-digit course number. The course number followed the same academic-level designations.
Graduate transcript with undergraduate-level courses:
Prior to fall 2010, certain 400-level courses would be approved for graduate-level credit and therefore may appear on the graduate transcript. Additionally, certain other undergraduate-level courses may appear on the graduate transcript with zero-attempted and zero-earned hours.
Information concerning grades, their description and quality points is available in university policy 5.5 (PDF). Term and cumulative totals are shown at the end of each term.
- Attempted Hours (AHRS): All attempted hours, including transfer hours and remedial hours.
- Earned Hours (EHRS): All earned hours, including transfer work but excluding remedial hours.
- Quality Hours (GPAHRS): All quality hours used to compute GPA. Excludes pass hours, remedial hours and hours transferred from other institutions.
- Quality Points (QPTS): Total quality points earned from QHRS.
- GPA: QPTS earned at SFA divided by QHRS.
