My.Dunwoody is an online portal of student information and resources. Found at http://my.dunwoody.edu, the portal provides links for the student’s login and check grades, schedule/registration, financial aid and account balance information, enrollment verifications, as well as; to a variety of resources, opportunities, and notifications. Students are strongly encouraged to actively utilize the information and resources available at My.Dunwoody. Once they are accepted to the College, students receive a login and password from the IT Helpdesk for those pages that require a login.
Registrar’s Office processes registration for students once they are accepted to Dunwoody. The College uses a cohort-model of registration: all students in the same program and same term start are registered together for upcoming required classes. It also ensures that students have access to the courses they need and can complete their program in a timely manner. Students are only registered for the courses required by their curriculum. New students will receive a paper copy of their schedule at orientation and can view their schedule via my.dunwoody. For returning students, registration for courses is coordinated by learning department advisors and the Registrar’s Office. All registered courses will appear for the student in my.dunwoody under Home or Classes tab. Students on hold will not have registrations processed/validated until hold is cleared. All registration questions may be directed to the Registrar’s Office.
Students who wish to request their academic transcript should complete the transcript request form found in the Registrar’s Office or at dunwoody.edu. Transcripts are $10.00 per copy (exception: currently enrolled students do not pay). Only signed, paid and written requests will be processed. Telephone and email requests cannot be accepted. Requests will be processed within five business days.
Dunwoody reserves the right to withhold transcripts of current or former students who are not in good financial or academic standing with the College.
Currently enrolled students or graduates within last six months can view their unofficial transcript through my.dunwoody.

International transcript evaluation follows all previous requirements as well as the below requirements:
- The institution at which the student earned course credit and the course for which transfer is under consideration must be reviewed and approved by an international credential evaluator such as World Education Services (WES) www.wes.org and Educational Credential Evaluators Inc.

Academic Plan & Degree Progress
Students should monitor their progress toward their declared certificate or degree path using the Degree Requirements feature in my.dunwoody at https://my.dunwoody.edu. This plan will also be used by faculty, department deans, program managers, and student services advisors in advising sessions. The academic plan shows what has been completed, what is in progress, and what is left to do in order to satisfy academic requirements for graduation.
In order to graduate with a certificate or degree program from Dunwoody College of Technology, students must meet all of the following graduation requirements:
- Complete all courses listed under the degree requirements on academic plan.
- Maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0.
Graduation Diplomas & Transcripts
Degrees are processed approximately six to eight weeks following the end of term. Diplomas and unofficial transcripts will then be mailed to graduates who have fulfilled all financial obligations and returned all college property (laptops, library materials, etc.).
The ceremony occurs after spring semester. Graduate participation in Commencement is encouraged, but not required. Participating in Commencement is not an indication of official graduate status.
The graduation fee is a one-time, non-refundable fee of $50.00. It defrays the costs of processing graduates for graduation, printing and mailing diplomas, printing diploma covers, the cap and gown worn at commencement, and other expenses associated with graduation. Students will be billed the $50.00 graduation fee by the Bursar’s Office when they are in the last term of their program. The fee will be applied as a charge to student account and billed along with any other outstanding expenses students may owe to Dunwoody.
