Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grades are elected by filling out a S/U form available on our website or in the Registration & Records Office.

Withdrawals (W grades) are elected by filling out the Add/Drop Form available on our website or in the Registration & Records Office.

The maximum time for the change of an I grade to a performance grade is determined by the instructor, but shall not exceed one academic year. If a change of grade is NOT made by the instructor prior to the deadline, the I grade will automatically be converted to an F grade.

If this method does not satisfy you, then you can fill out the FERPA Release of Information form found in the Registration & Records Office or on our website. This must be completed, notarized, and returned to the Registration & Records Office.

How do I prevent the release of my directory information?

Certain directory information may be released without the student’s permission. Niagara County Community College has defined directory information to include: the student’s name, address (including email), telephone number, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, photograph, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student. The release of this information allows us to verify enrollment for purposes of health insurance, job applications, promotions, etc. However, you may prevent the release of such information by completing the Request for Non-Disclosure form in the Registration & Records Office or found on the Registration & Records Office website. Please be aware that this may have a negative impact on enrollment verifications, employer inquiries, promotions, etc.

How do I know for which courses I have received transfer credit?

Once your official transcript has been received by the Admissions Office it is forwarded to the Registration and Records Office to be evaluated. Once your transcript has been evaluated, you will be notified by mail as to what has been accepted. Transfer credits will appear on your transcript with a grade of “T”. The “T” carries no point value, therefore, it is not considered when calculating the semester, degree or cumulative GPA. Transfer credits carry earned hours only. You can view our course equivalency guide by going to the Registration & Records Office website and clicking on “Transfer Credit Evaluations”.

How long does it take from the time my transcript reaches NCCC until I am notified by mail?

The process may take 3-4 weeks. Therefore, please have your transcript sent as soon as possible after you have received grades at the college previously attended.
