Transcripts, Grades & Credit

Earning Credit

A student may either elect to enroll in the spring college course for a letter grade or they may take the course pass/fail if the course has been set up with a student-choice option.

  • If a student takes the course for a letter grade and earns credit, the letter grade they earn for the course will appear on their transcript from The University of Texas at Austin.
  • If a student takes the course pass/fail and earns credit, the transcript will not show a letter grade but only that the student passed or failed the class. A letter grade of D- or better is considered passing.

1 All courses except RHE309K are Core Courses at UT Austin, which means they are gauranteed to transfer to any public insitutution in Texas. RHE309K transfers elsewhere as TCCN 1302 and is a core course at most institutions. If you have difficulty transfering RHE309k, please contact OnRamps Director Dr. Julie Schell

GPA

A student’s grade from an OnRamps course (not the high school course) counts in the student’s cumulative GPA at The University of Texas at Austin. To determine how an OnRamps letter grade or credit applies at other institutions, students should contact that institution's registrar's office.

Transferability and Applicability

A student needs to request a transcript from the University Registrar and have it sent to their chosen institution. Each institution evaluates a student’s transfer credits based on its own policies. Colleges and universities have different requirements that vary by school, college, and institution. In order to determine how OnRamps courses will apply to your major or degree program, you must contact the individual institution you plan to attend. The registrar charges $20 for each transcript requested.

Grade Reporting

While parents may communicate with the high school instructor about students’ high school grades, the university Instructor of Record may not communicate with parents regarding students’ college grades.

That is because under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), rights belong to the parents with respect to high school records, but they belong to the student with respect to the post-secondary records, regardless of a student's age.

Our university Instructors of Record will make every attempt to communicate with and through the student, as this is an important maturation point for college students.

Transcripts

For information about how to order a UT Austin transcript, visit the Office of the Registrar's website.

IMPORTANT: OnRamps students CANNOT order transcripts through the Registrar’s online transcript order system. OnRamps students CAN order transcripts using the other options listed on the Registrar’s website.

Enrollment Certification - Non-Attendance Verification

Non-Attendance Verification: Due to the large number of requests, The University of Texas at Austin does not provide individualized or personal letters to certify non-attendance. However, students may direct third party inquirers to the Verify degree & attendance service available from the Office of the Registrar website to verify enrollment or degree of any University of Texas at Austin alumnus, attendee, or student by clicking here. Enter the student's last name and first name.

If you need additional assistance please contact Ms. Emily Wade.
