Cornell University School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions

Winter Session 2020 will run from December 26, 2019 to January 18, 2020, with three-week on-campus classes beginning on January 2, 2020. We will update the Winter Session site in September.

Grades and transcripts

Grades and symbols

Refer to the Cornell University Courses of Study website for complete information. Please note these winter-specific details:

  • If you withdraw from a course on or after the withdrawal deadline (see Changes in registration), the symbol "W" appears on your transcript for the dropped course. The purpose is to maintain the transcript as a true and complete record of course attendance.
  • When you register as an auditor, the symbol "V" appears on your transcript.
    Note: Cornell undergraduates are not permitted to audit courses.

You will be able to see your final grade(s) at the end of the semester by logging on to Student Center and clicking on "Grades" under Academic History. Your NetID and password are required. Grades cannot be given over the telephone, e-mail, or fax. If you are unable to access your grade(s), please contact the IT Service Desk at 607.255.5500. See the Winter Session calendar for dates of grade(s) availability.


Your enrollment as a Winter Session student in courses, your grades, and the number of credits you earn will be recorded on an official Cornell University transcript and will be a part of your permanent and complete academic record at the university. There is only a single complete Cornell University record for each student. All courses offered through Winter Session are Cornell University courses.

To request a transcript, visit Ordering Transcripts on the Office of the University Registrar website. Your Cornell NetID and password are required. See the Winter Session calendar for dates of transcript availability.

How do Winter Session students who don't have a NetID request a transcript?

Use the Self Registration ordering site if you do not have a NetID or your attendance began before 1982.
