COVID-19 Notice | 2020–2021 Academic Year
As we prepare for the upcoming academic year, the challenges and uncertainty for delivering course content remain in this COVID-19 environment. Edison State Community College intends to provide academic courses through a variety of formats, including hybrid, remote and online. Since unanticipated circumstances at any time could affect the ability to deliver course content in a particular manner, Edison State reserves the right to modify the delivery method for course content for the health and safety of students, faculty and staff. Irrespective of the delivery format Edison State’s competitive tuition and course fee structure shall remain the same for academic courses, consistent with published Edison State tuition and fee schedules. There will be no refund or reduction on tuition or course fees, since Edison State will be providing a full semester of instruction and awarding full academic credit to those who satisfactorily fulfill course requirements.

The Office of Registration and Records is responsible for the registration process and maintaining academic records of students who have attended Edison State Community College. Within established state and federal guidelines, the Office of Records and Registration is responsible to produce transcripts of all academic coursework for those students who have attended, and to provide and verify information about student enrollment history.
You will find detailed information regarding academic probation, academic suspension and readmission in the
Academic Catalog or the Edison State Community College Student Handbook.
As a member school in the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE), Edison State Community College participates in the SOCHE Consortium. This Consortium of more than twenty colleges and universities provides a means for students to cross-register at each other's institutions, while paying the tuition of their current (or home) institution.
There are certain conditions that must be met in order to receive permission to attend through this consortium. More information can be found on the SOCHE website.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that requires that Edison State Community College, with certain exceptions, obtain your written consent prior to the disclosure of personally identifiable information from education records. However, the College may disclose appropriately designated "directory information" without written consent, unless you have advised the College to the contrary in accordance with published procedures. The primary purpose of directory information is to allow the College to include non-invasive information from your education records in a number of ways, such as inclusion in certain school publications, press releases or online media. Examples include:
Directory information is information that is generally not considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if released, may also be disclosed to outside organizations and individuals without a student's prior written consent.
If you do not want the College to disclose directory information from your education records without your prior written consent, you must notify the College Registrar in writing. Edison State Community College has designated the following information as directory information:
What is the difference between official and unofficial transcripts?Official transcripts are printed on secure paper which bears the Registrar's signature, the College seal, and contains other security features to help prevent and deter tampering and fraud. Because of this, official transcripts cannot be faxed, generated online or emailed. Some colleges will only accept transcripts as official if sent and received in a sealed envelope from the reporting institution.
Unofficial transcripts are printed on plain white paper. They are usually used for an informal evaluation or for students' personal records. Students can access an unofficial transcript in WebAdvisor that can be printed for these purposes.
Why do I have to provide an official copy of my High School transcripts?Your high school transcript is the official means of proof that you have graduated from high school. Members of the University System of Ohio (like Edison State) cannot award degrees or certificates to students unless they have graduated from high school or earned a GED.
Where can I obtain my GED transcript?Students who have completed their GED must provide Edison State with proof of completion in order to graduate from Edison State with a degree or certificate. Instructions and information regarding how to request a copy of your GED transcript can be found on the
Ohio Department of Education website.
How do I change my major?To change your major please complete the Declaration of Major | Change of Major Form.
What is auditing a course?When auditing a course, a student is not competing for a grade, nor will they receive transcript credit for the course. Auditing costs the same as taking a course for credit, except for those who are over the age of 60. The request to audit a course must be completed before the end of the late registration window.
When will I be able to see my final grades?You can usually view your final grades on the Wednesday following the end of each semester.
If my grade is wrong, what do I do?If you have a discrepancy with your grade, contact the instructor of that course. The instructor can submit a Grade Change Request Form to the Office of Registration and Records.
I requested a copy of my transcript but the other college has not received it. What do I do?The Office of Registration and Records keeps track of all transcript requests, including when we send the transcript and to what address, based upon the information provided. Once a transcript leaves the college, the U.S. Postal Service delivers it to the other institution. Quite often, a transcript may take only a day or two to arrive at its destination, but can then spend another couple of days caught up in the campus mail system before being delivered to the particular office or person to whom it has been sent. We cannot be responsible for 'lost' transcripts if we receive incomplete or inaccurate mailing information. Always verify that all the information you provide is correct and up-to-date.
