Registrar

The Office of the Registrar provides students with services designed to assist them in attaining their academic goals. We are located on the second floor of Lasker Hall. We publish the Master Schedule each semester, manage all phases of registration, catalog grades, verify enrollment and produce transcripts upon request.


Mission Statement

The Office of the Registrar is dedicated to providing the highest level of service to our students and the entire university community. The dedicated staff of the Office of the Registrar is committed to maintaining professionalism in ensuring the confidentiality and security of all academic records and to comply with all Federal and State regulations pertaining to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 and the rights of students. As a member of the Academic Affairs division of Delaware Valley University, we are central to the implementation and enforcement of the University's academic policies. We provide accurate and timely information related to registration, graduation, enrollment, grading, course and examination scheduling, and academic credentials.

Helpful Links and Forms

Under normal operating conditions, Delaware Valley University does not allow a course with a grade of “Pass” to transfer to the University. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic many institutions have altered their grading schemes to allow, or require, students to take courses “Pass / Fail”.

Considering the current situation, Delaware Valley University will accept grades of “Pass” (or grade equivalent) for undergraduate courses earned in the Spring 2020 term from other accredited institutions. Students transferring in grades of “Pass” to fulfill pre-requisites should be aware that grades of “C” or better are normally accepted at the University and are responsible for being prepared for courses in which these transfer courses are pre-requisites.

The Pass with Credit / No Pass Grading Option for the Spring 2020 Term is now CLOSED.

Please contact the Registrar's Office if you have questions about your submission.

Due to the special circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the University community, the University will allow students to choose, if they wish, to receive a grade of PC (Pass with Credit) or NP (No Pass) for Spring 2020 credit-bearing undergraduate courses. Students will inform the registrar’s office of their choice for each course after receiving traditional “letter” grades in the course.

Grading: Faculty will enter grades as they normally would during the final grading period. All grades must be entered by 6pm on Sunday, May 17, 2020.

Requesting a PC or NP Grade: Between Monday, May 18 and Sunday, May 24, students will review their grades and have the option to request a change of grade from a letter grade to a PC or NP grade for credit-bearing undergraduate courses utilizing a form created by the registrar’s office. A link to the form will be sent to students on May 18, 2020.

· “Pass with Credit” (PC) Grade: This grade may be substituted for students who earn a letter grade between D- and A. The grade will not factor into the student’s GPA calculation. This course will satisfy the program requirements.

· “No Pass” (NP) Grade: This grade may be substituted for students who earn a letter grade of F. This course will not satisfy program requirements. It will not affect the GPA.

Students transferring to Delaware Valley University from other regionally or nationally accredited institutions of higher education as baccalaureate candidates must complete at least 48 credits of coursework at Delaware Valley University, including at least 15 credits in the major. The maximum number of credits accepted for transfer will be 78. Only credits for courses in which a grade of "C" or better has been earned are accepted for transfer and only the credits (not the grades or quality points) are transferred. A grade of "D" will be accepted when the course is the first in a two-course sequence and the second course grade was a "C" or better. A grade of "C-" will also be accepted when it is part of a completed higher education degree (associate degree). Prospective, full-time undergraduate transfer students should make application to DelVal by contacting the Admissions office. The Admissions Office will evaluate transfers interested in full-time undergraduate study. Continuing education students should contact the Continuing Education office for admissions criteria and transcript evaluation. Official transcripts are required.

Transfer Policy for the Experience 360 program:

· Students who transfer 15 credits or more to Delaware Valley College should speak with the E360 coordinator before enrolling in FY-9900 or FY-9901 to determine eligibility.

· Students who transfer less than 15 credits must complete the Experiential Learning Program as outlined in the academic program requirements.

· Continuing Education students should contact that office to determine if current (and previous) work experience will satisfy the Experiential Learning program.

Please consult this spreadsheet to determine which courses have been approved for transfer to Delaware Valley University. Once you have found the courses you wish to take you must fill out this form prior to enrolling in those courses. If the course you wish to take is not on the spreadsheet it has not been approved and you must fill out this form and and a copy of the course description to the department chair of the DVU course for approval.

Degree Verification

We've authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide degree verifications. The National Student Clearinghouse can be contacted at:

Their Website

Or

National Student Clearinghouse
2300 Dulles Station Boulevard, Suite 300
Herndon, Va. 20171

Enrollment Verification

Enrollment verification provides information regarding a student's full-time or part-time registration status, dates of attendance, degrees sought or awarded and program of study. This service is provided free of charge to students. This information is needed by the student's lender, insurance carriers, sponsors and others to determine eligibility for continuation of benefits.

An enrollment verification normally takes seven to ten business days to release verification letters and forms.

How is the enrollment verification information released?

This information is usually released at the written request of the student. However, it may be released without the student's permission, since it has been defined by College as "directory information," which is allowed for release according to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).

This information is also routinely provided directly to state Guaranteed Lending Institutions, such as PHEAA, NJHEAA and USA Funds. This is done on a scheduled basis throughout the semester through our participation in the National Student Clearinghouse.

How is verification of enrollment information requested?

You can request an enrollment verification through National Student Clearinghouse by following this link.

Use this guide to coordinate credit transfer for classes that you plan to take while studying abroad. Meet with your Academic Advisor and Department Chair(s) to discuss your credit transfer options and complete the appropriate form. If you would like more information or to submit your form electronically, email StudyAbroad@delval.edu.

Who needs to use this form?

Students attending a credit-bearing study abroad program offered through a study abroad provider, such as the School for Field Studies, or a host university, such as Hartpury College. Students attending a DelVal faculty-led program or a program that does not offer academic credit do not need to complete this form. You do not need to complete this form for online E360 courses (i.e. EX-2010 Career Exploration Experience Abroad or EX-0025 Cultural Experience Abroad).

When do I submit this form?

It is highly recommended that you submit this form before your depart for your study abroad program so you can make an informed decision on what courses to take while you are abroad. Final credit transfer will be decided once DelVal receives the official transcript from your study abroad program showing credit that you earned while abroad.

Please check back for the Fall 2020 exam schedule.
