Student Record Policy 

Transcripts and academic records contain only information about academic status. Information from disciplinary or counseling files are not available to unauthorized persons on campus or to any person off campus with the expressed written consent of the student involved, except under legal compulsion or when the safety of persons or property is involved. While information found in a student’s records is generally regarded as private, certain information is public information. Names, address, phone number, place of birth, academic major, high school attended, non-academic honors, dates of attendance, class schedule and classification are all considered public information. If students desire that public information relating to them not be released, they should notify the registrar in writing before the close of registration. 

Changing Personal Data

When the Enrollment Services Office need to communicate with students we can only rely on the information that is in our computer system, which if incorrect, may mean that you drive all the way to campus for a class that has been canceled because we do not have your current phone on record. You can change your personal data on the website when you log into Campus Connect or you can come by the office and fill out a change of data form.

How to Figure Grade Point Average 

The grade point average is used to determine a student’s academic rating at any given time. The grade point average is obtained by multiplying the number of grade points awarded for each grade by the credit hour value for the course. Then the total number of grade points received for all SouthaArk courses is divided by the total number of hours attempted at SouthArk. ( For example: If a student has earned 35 grade points on 12 semester hours attempted, the grade point average is 35 divided by 12, or 2.916.

A student enrolls in four courses (12 credit hours) as follows.
