Office of the College Registrar

Effective March 16, access to our office for services provided by the College Registrar’s Office, is remote until further notice. However, we are available to serve you by email and will return all voicemails within 1 business day.

 

The mission of the College Registrar's Office is to uphold the integrity of the Broward College credential and to be innovatively responsible stewards of students’ academic records in compliance with federal, state and institutional mandates. Our team takes pride in providing administrative support and services to students, faculty, staff, and administrators.

You must submit official transcripts for high school, and all colleges and universities attended. The transcript(s) should show that there is no coursework in progress.

Submit your transcript to Broward College using one of the formats below:

  1. Contact the previous institution(s) you attended to request your official transcript be sent electronically to Broward College (school code 001500)
  2. For schools that do not transmit electronically, mail an official and complete paper transcript(s) to:

Broward College Registrar’s Office
4205 Bonaventure Blvd.
Weston, FL 33332

Students who have previously attended another post-secondary institution are considered transfer students. Transfer and degree-seeking students who have fewer than 24 credits at the college level must submit official transcripts from their high school.

Transfer students must provide official transcripts from all previously attended colleges or universities. Students who attended a post-secondary institution outside of the United States must provide transcripts in English. The Registrar receives and evaluates petitions for military courses in the same manner as other incoming transfer credits. Prior to the students’ term of enrollment, transcripts are to be submitted by following the instructions on the Send Transcripts to Broward College tab.

Students who earned credit at a regionally accredited institution in the United States can access the Transfer Equivalency Service (TES) website to review if courses taken at their prior instition is transferable to Broward College.

Review courses you have taken at another institution to understand if they are equivalent to a Broward College course.

College and university transcripts for enrolled students are evaluated in the order they are received.

Official Non-U.S. Transcripts

Students who attended a university outside the United States and want consideration of prior course work for credit and course equivalency must submit their foreign academic transcripts, certified English translation, and the accompanying commercial evaluation. Foreign academic transcripts must be commercially evaluated by a current member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES). These evaluations must include the following:

  • Course-by-course
  • Lower/Upper level courses identified, and
  • Credits/hours of instruction
  • Optional: GPA needed for Bachelors degree program admission review

The student is responsible for evaluation fees and there is no guarantee that coursework will transfer.

Students residing in the U.S. with prior coursework from postsecondary institutions outside of the country must follow the same guidelines as indicated relative to submitting all prior coursework for evaluation. Transcripts in languages other than English must be translated.

Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency
Since the initial implementation of the State Course Numbering System (SCNS), specific disciplines or types of courses have been exempted from the guarantee of transfer for equivalent courses. These include courses that must be evaluated individually or courses in which the student must be evaluated for mastery of skill and technique. Transferability is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

High School
Students will not be accepted without appropriate proof of high school graduation. If we are unable to verify the credential, we will require a commercial evaluation of the high school documents. We only accept evaluations completed by current members of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).

NOTE: Students who have earned 24 credit hours of Broward credit through dual enrollment or transfer credits from other colleges and universities may present their official college transcripts in lieu of high school records unless requesting financial aid.

FERPA and the Parent of the Student

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. According to Federal FERPA Regulations 34 CFR 99, and Florida Statute 1002.22, the parents of a student who has reached the age of 18 years or is enrolled in a post-secondary program no longer have any rights under the provisions of this policy, unless the student gives written consent to release the information to the student’s parents.

Any student who would like to allow another person to access their education records must complete a FERPA Release Form.

FERPA and Directory Information

FERPA also allows Broward College to release “directory information” without obtaining the prior consent of the student. The following is what Broward College considers directory information: name, enrollment status, degrees and awards received, and statistics pertaining to a student’s participation in officially recognized sports and activities.

Students have the right, under FERPA, to "opt-out" of the release of directory information by submitting a FERPA Directory Information Opt-Out Form. Students who opt-out of the release of directory information will also be considered to have opted out of the release of military recruitment information.

If you have questions related to FERPA processing, please send an e-mail to FERPA@broward.edu.

For more information, please review the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ).
