Transcripts and grades

Keep an eye on your academic progress by checking your grades in myAU. You can check both in-progress and final grades, but the final grade will only appear on your transcript once it becomes official. This can take some time.

Checking grades

You can access your grades through the Manage Your Courses section of myAU. Once an assignment or an exam has been marked, it will appear in your in-progress grades. You can also view your unofficial final grades.

During peak times, the time frame for posting an official grade in your student record (and appearing on your transcripts) can vary and depends on factors such as whether you choose to write a supplemental exam.

It’s important to be aware of timing, especially if you are a visiting student needing to transfer credit back to your home institution. You should plan to complete all of your course requirements at least 4-6 weeks before you need the final grade.

Ombuds Office

The Ombuds Office is where students can go if they need assistance with student services issues.

They make sure everyone is treated fairly. They investigate and recommend solutions but are not a replacement for using the regular university channels to seek help or information.
