Student Transcript Policy

Student Transcript Policy

To comply with Distance Education Accreditation Commission (DEAC) accreditation standards for an online institution, Quantic School of Business and Technology takes measures to verify the academic history of all learners.  Therefore,  Quantic requires all students to supply official transcripts of their highest earned degree. Once transcripts are received, they are reviewed and then verified against self-disclosed information on a student’s profile. Please note that Quantic may request additional documentation during the review process on a case-by-case basis. We can only accept official transcripts from accredited institutions.

Official Transcripts 

An official transcript is an official copy of a student’s educational record at a post-secondary institution.  It usually lists all courses taken, final grades received, credits (and honors) earned, degrees or certifications awarded including corresponding dates of enrollment and completion, and includes the registrar's original signature and/or the original seal of the issuing institution.  They are also commonly referred to as Marksheets, Diploma Supplements, or Higher Education Academic Records (HEAR) documentation. 

Official transcripts must be mailed or emailed directly from the degree-granting institution OR an authorized third party to the Quantic Registrar ([email protected]).  Emailed transcripts should be sent from the office or department designated by the university to issue/ retain student academic records. 

Quantic requires all students to supply official transcripts of their highest earned degree. Please also review our Transcript Requirement FAQ page for additional information regarding transcripts and submission. 

Submitting Unofficial Degree Documentation

If a student has graduated from multiple institutions,  we require official documentation from the school where they earned their highest degree.  We encourage applicants to upload their unofficial transcripts to the Documents area of Settings. This will help us get started on reviewing eligibility. 

To upload your unofficial transcripts, once logged in to your student account, click on your profile picture in the top right corner. Select Accounts and you will be taken to your profile page. From the left-hand menu, select Documents. You will then see an Upload button next to each of your listed degree programs. Click on this button and you can upload your unofficial transcripts directly from your device. 

Documents should be compiled into one PDF for EACH school, with an identifiable name, and the document should be legible. Documentation with photos, saved in cloud storage (eg. Google Drive links), saved as JPEG or any other inaccessible file format, file sizes over 10MB, poor resolution, missing information, or including any other distracting information to evaluating degree documentation may require follow up or re-submission.  If you have any trouble with this process, please reach out to our Enrollment Services department by sending an email to [email protected]

Failure to Submit Transcripts

Failure to have required degree documentation submitted by the end of the eighth week of enrollment will result in an academic hold.  If continued delinquency occurs, the student may be administratively withdrawn from the Quantic School of Business and Technology. 

If a discrepancy is found in any submitted documents, the registrar will contact the student to rectify the discrepancy.  In situations where the Quantic School of Business and Technology finds that a student intentionally misrepresented themselves in their application or academic history, the student will be administratively withdrawn from the program.

Transcript Evaluation and Translation 

EVALUATION

Quantic School of Business and Technology requires that our learners have earned  at least a U.S. bachelor's degree from an accredited institution or an equivalent non-U.S. bachelor's degree as determined by a NACES-approved evaluation service from an accredited international institution.  Any provided degree documentation that does not meet our transcript requirements can be subject to a third party evaluation.  Quantic School of Business and Technology has partnered with Spantran to facilitate evaluation of official transcripts.  We facilitate evaluations to meet accreditation guidelines and maintain program rigor.  If degree documentation is not evaluated at the bachelor’s level, its equivalent, or higher the student will be administratively withdrawn from the program.

Three-Year International Bachelor's Degree

Quantic School of Business and Technology accepts three-year bachelor’s degrees earned from institutions that are members of the Bologna Process. For applicants who earned three-year bachelor’s degrees from institutions that are not part of the Bologna Process, Quantic initiates a third-party evaluation of submitted transcripts through a NACES-approved evaluation service. Based on the results of this evaluation, Quantic determines whether applicants are eligible for admission to the programs offered. If the evaluation results demonstrate that an applicant did not earn a degree equivalent to a U.S. bachelor’s degree, applicants will not be eligible for admission to the degree programs. If applicants completed additional academic study beyond the three-year bachelor’s degree (e.g., a master’s degree, postgraduate diploma, or other postgraduate degrees), these degrees will be included for consideration in the eligibility review.

TRANSLATION

If a student has access to an evaluated and translated transcript they can request this document to be submitted directly to Quantic School of Business and Technology.  Translated and evaluated transcripts must be submitted by the degree-granting institution itself, the Ministry of Education (or another governing body), a NACES-member, or a trained transcript evaluator fluent in the language of the transcript.  We cannot accept documents emailed/mailed directly from a student. 

If a student is unable to provide translated transcripts, they should contact [email protected].  In general, Quantic requires the Certificate/Diploma and Academic Transcripts/Marksheets to facilitate the evaluation. 

VERIFICATION

If a student can only have unofficial transcripts and degree documentation it will be subject to third party verification and evaluation.  If the documentation does not meet DEAC accreditation guidelines (such as documents cannot be verified, transcripts are from a non-accredited institution, etc…) the student will be asked to have further documentation submitted and potentially be subject to removal.

Document Retention

Official transcripts and degree documentation are retained in perpetuity as a permanent part of a student’s record. We cannot return any type of document once submitted to us.
