How do I order an enrollment verification?
Verification of enrollment or graduation can be requested from the Registrar’s Office by completing the form for enrollment verification, and turning it in by mail, or by fax (256-372-5253), or in person. Generally, this request can be completed in less than a week.

How do I order a transcript of my academic record?

Alabama A&M University uses an online ordering system through the National Clearing House.  To order your transcript using this service, please click the link below and follow the prompts.

When ordering transcripts, you will have the option to have your transcript order held until after grades/degrees are posted.  Please allow up to two weeks for grades/degrees to post after a semester has ended.
You can retrieve an unofficial transcript online if you attended the University from 1984 to present and you do not have a balance at the University.  Follow the steps below:

  • Click on this link to "Look-up Banner ID and PIN".
  • Log on to "Self-Service Banner (SSB)" and follow the steps to set up your Banner Self-Service account.
  • Select the following tabs "Student", "Student Records", and "Academic Transcript".
  • Click "submit" to view and print your unofficial transcript.

How can I find out what courses are available each semester?
In order to check for course availability, we suggest that you use the Schedule of Classes located here on our web site.

What if I have pre-registered for classes and now I realized that I won’t be able to attend, what do I do?
You need to cancel your registration before the first day of class so you can receive 100% of your tuition back. After the first day of class, it is the student's responsibility to contact each instructor and obtain verification of non-attendance in each registered course by obtaining a memo from each instructor on the department letterhead to submit with the cancellation of registration form, or by having each instructor forward an email verifying non-attendance to the Office of the Registrar.  You can fax  a cancellation of registration form to either the Office of Student Financial Aid at (256) 372-5407 or to the Registrar's Office at (256)-372-5253; however the aforementioned documentation from your instructors verifying non-attendance must accompany the cancellation of registration form. You may also come to the Registrar’s Office to fill out the cancellation of registration form, submit it to the Office of Student Financial Aid for approval, and return the form to the Registrar's Office located in room 204 Patton Hall with the accompanying documentation.   If you attend one class, then it becomes a withdrawal and you will lose a percentage of your tuition based on the University Refund Calculation Schedule
What happens if I apply for graduation, but do not clear?
You will need to re-apply for graduation for the semester or term you plan to complete graduation requirements. Undergraduate students will need to check with their Academic Advisor and Graduate students will need to check with the Graduate Studies office concerning this matter.
How can I replace a lost diploma?
We will need a written request with the following information: full name, degree received, graduation date, social security number or Banner number, a mailing address, and payment. Diploma inserts are $11.00, miniature diplomas are $3,36, and diploma covers are $11.03. There is an additional fee of $8.55 to have a diploma insert mailed and an additional fee of $10.00 to have a diploma insert and  cover mailed. Payment has to be made in the Bursars Office, or you may mail a money order for the total amount with your written request. Please mail request to Office of the Registrar, Alabama A&M University, 204 Patton Building, Normal, AL 35762. Diplomas are re-ordered during the Spring and Fall semesters. Click here for the Diploma Re-Order Form
