Student Grade Reports/Transcripts?

Your student will need to contact the Registrar's office
College students' records are protected by the Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA). It restricts institutions from releasing grades and other educational records without the student's written permission. Students may view their grades online through the Self-service system after grades have been submitted and recorded by the Registrar's Office. Otis does not mail grade reports home.
