Andrews University provides secure access to personal information in Vault, where students and alumni can access grades, the online transcript request form, personal contact information, emergency contacts, co-curricular credit record, track degree progress through the degree audit function, Registration Central, employment information and paperwork, financial accounts and financial aid history, and your class schedule.
To avoid missing important communications from the University, students must ensure that the University has an up-to-date “preferred” e-mail address, a permanent and mailing (local) address, and a phone number. It is critical that students maintain and regularly check their contact information for accuracy.
Communications mailed to an address on record will be deemed adequate notice. The University does not accept responsibility if official communication fails to reach a student who has not notified the University of a change of e-mail or mailing address.
Students can update their contact information through Vault.
Students who have legally changed their names OR whose name is incorrect in the database should fill out a Name Change Request form. This form is available from the front counter in Academic Records. This is to change your name as it appears in the Academic Records database and is reflected on your transcripts but not on the diploma.
Please be aware of the type of legal documentation required for your name change and be prepared to show these documents and your ID to support your claims. Name changes to the database are processed in 24 hours. Name changes can be done at any time but changes made after graduation will not be reflected on diplomas because a diploma is a historical document which reflects your name at the time of graduation.
