Top 2 Reasons Your Degree Won’t Post Transfer Credit not appearing on NAU transcript Addendums not filed
Transfer Credit Make sure ALL of your transfer credits from other institutions are showing up on your transcripts. If your transfer credits are not appearing on your NAU transcripts, contact the other institution and request an official copy to be sent to NAU’s Undergraduate Admissions Office You’re degree will not post until all of your transfer credits have been uploaded to the system.
Graduation Addendum You need to file an Addendum: Drop/Add course(s) after you file your graduation papers Add a minor/major after you file your graduation papers Change the term, institution, credit hours, of a course after you file your graduation papers Your degree will not post until Addendum is filed
What to do after December, 2011 Be sure to check your NAU email each week after December 16, 2011. NAU email is how the Registrars Office will alert you to any concerns/problems/questions they have about your graduation application. You can check to see if your degree has been awarded by logging on to LOUIE. At the bottom of your unofficial transcripts you will see your degree listed. For example: Awarded December 16, 2011, Bachelors of Arts in English When you see your degree listed at the bottom of your transcripts you are officially graduated. It will take 6-8 weeks to physically receive your diploma in the mail after the posting.
