SCSU Faculty: Transcripts Changed Without Input
ST. CLOUD (AP) – St. Cloud State University professors say some students transcripts have been changed without the instructors input – and that’s an ethical breach.
Faculty association president Stephen Hornstein says students’ grades were disappearing from their transcripts without instructors being notified. He says a student would take a course, get a poor grade and then a semester or two later, the grade wouldn’t be on his or her transcript.
Students can petition to have a course removed, but under university rules, school administrators are required to notify the course instructor whenever they change a grade.
Provost Devinder Molhotra says it was clear protocol was not being followed. So a memo was issued to deans and associate deans reiterating the policy. Faculty members have asked the administration to issue regular reports that detail transcript changes.
