Reading Transcripts

In their 1L year, all students’ courses are full-year courses except for Public Law. As a result, only Public Law will show up on their official transcripts before 1L is completed. If students are participating in the 1L formal recruit in February of their 1L year, they will be submitting a hand-typed list of their grades for all courses other than Public Law. 

Please also note that students who have completed another degree at Queen’s will only submit one transcript that includes all grades from all degrees. The JD grades will be listed last, after their previous degrees.
