Grades, Credits and Transcripts


Grades

To view your grades in SAGE, select "Academics" (the blue hyperlink on the left) and then on the next screen, select "Grades" from the column on the right. Hard copies of grade reports are no longer mailed to students. Students should not confuse personal grade reports with official transcripts.

Current Brandeis Students

Brandeis summer courses are part of your regular Brandeis undergraduate record - just like classes taken in the Fall or the Spring terms. 

There is no limit to the number of Summer School courses students may use toward their degree. There is however a limit on the number if credits earned in a single summer.  Brandeis students may take 12 credit hours (three 4-credit courses OR two 4-credit courses and two 2-credit labs) in a single summer.  Brandeis Summer School courses also count toward the University Residency Requirement.

If you are a transfer student, you should refer to the University Bulletin for specific information regarding residency and transfer requirements.

Visiting Students and Transferring Course Credit

If you were a visiting summer student and would like a transcript sent to your home college or university, login to SAGE and select "Academics" (the blue hyperlink on the left) and then on the next screen, on the right select “Request Official Transcript.” Then fill in the information on where you would like your transcript sent. Please do not request a transcript until your final course grade appears in SAGE – otherwise a blank transcript might be sent.

If in the future you lose your SAGE access, you may also fill out a paper transcript request form and submit it to the Brandeis Registrar's Office.

Transcripts for High School Students 

If you would like a transcript sent to a college or university, login to SAGE and select "Academics" (the blue hyperlink on the left) and then on the next screen, on the right select “Request Official Transcript.” Then fill in the information on where you would like your transcript sent. Please do not request a transcript until your grades have been recorded – otherwise a blank transcript might be sent.

If in the future you lose your SAGE access, you may also fill out a paper transcript request form and submit it to the Brandeis Registrar's Office.

Brandeis Grading System

For Undergraduates
The following grades will be used with plus or minus, where appropriate:

A    High distinction
B  Distinction
C  Satisfactory
D  Passing but unsatisfactory 
E  Failure

For Graduates
The established grades are A, B, C, D, and E. Grades of A, B, or Credit indicate that the course was passed with distinction. Only courses passed with distinction may be counted toward a high degree. Nothing below a B- is accepted for graduate credit.

Incomplete
With the consent of the director of the Summer School, a student may receive an authorized incomplete. A student receiving a grade of Incomplete will be granted a specific extension of time, in no case later than September ??, 2013. Instructors are required to submit letter grades to replace Incompletes no later than September ??, 2013 to avoid conversion to a failing grade of E by the Committee on Academic Standing.
