For over 70 years AACRAO has provided up-to-date guidance and best practices on keeping, protecting, and disseminating student records and transcript information. The AACRAO 2016 Academic Record and Transcript Guide continues this trend, aiding registrars in their task of preserving the integrity of their institution’s academic records. Recommendations for the placement of 54 database and transcript components are provided, along with discussions of current issues including name and gender changes, notating disciplinary actions, and the use of social security numbers in the database and on the transcript. Chapters also cover the transcription of nontraditional work and continuing education unit records, transcript services, legal considerations, the security of student records, and tips for recognizing and combatting fraudulent transcripts.
