Records can ONLY be released upon PAYMENT IN
FULL of all debts to the Institute.
Information, grades, transcripts or diplomas (to be referred
to hereon in as “records”) remain the property of Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute until the student has met all academic
requirements and is in good financial standing in accordance
with Rensselaer policy.
If you are actively registered or have graduated or
separated from Rensselaer, you are entitled to have access to
“records” if you have met all these requirements. Good
financial standing means that you must be paid in full with all
tuition, fees and miscellaneous charges owed to the Institute.
All loan obligations including but not limited to
institutional, federal, state and local loans that you accepted
while enrolled at the Institute at any time must also be
satisfied and paid in full.
Any outstanding debt (tuition, fees, miscellaneous charges
and/or loans) of any amount will result in a hold on your
account and prevent the release of “records”. You may contact
the Bursar’s Office or if applicable a collection agency or
loan service provider if your debt was referred to a delegated
authority for additional collection efforts, to enter into a
mutually agreed upon installment payment arrangement to satisfy
a debt. Entering into a payment plan of any type will not,
under any circumstances, provide the immediate release of
“records” until the full satisfaction of those arrangements and
subsequently the debt is paid in full.
Remember, records will ONLY be released upon PAYMENT
IN FULL of all debts to Rensselaer.
