Here are some additional tools you'll need to learn the University's policies and procedures:

Student Validity Process

To assure that the student who enrolls in an online course/program is the same student who participates in and completes the program and receives the academic credits:

  • The student who enrolls for the online course is ‘batched’ into the course through SPIRE and Blackboard Learn using only the information from their registration.
  • The student uses their assigned login credential to actually log into the course each time they want access to the course.
  • UMass Amherst IT’s acceptable use policy further addresses this topic. 
  • Therefore, the person who has those credentials is the same person doing the work.
  • Online faculty state in their syllabus information about the University’s academic honesty rules and the potential results for any violations.
  • Online faculty input grades via SPIRE for each student based upon the same registration information.

Transcripts

Electronic transcripts are now available to all current and former UMass Amherst students. To obtain a transcript, click here.

Students seeking transcripts for non-credit courses (those with subject areas beginning with LL, such as LLAMS) should contact the CPE Registration Office at regoff@cpe.umass.edu or call 413-545-3653 or 800-922-8211.

See the academic calendar to determine when grades will show on transcripts for each term. Grades for Summer Session 1 will not be reflected on transcripts until the entire summer term has ended.
