MSOE will transition from an 11-week, quarter-based academic calendar (10 weeks instruction + 1 finals week) to a 16-week (15 weeks instruction + 1 finals week) semester model beginning with the 2023-24 academic year. Significant time and resources have been committed to this transition since it was announced in December 2019. As we lead into Fall 2023, this work continues, and regular announcements will be shared to ensure a smooth transition for everyone.

We have completed the system updates necessary to convert quarter-based credits to semester-based credits for students transitioning to semesters and not graduating from MSOE at the end of the spring or summer terms. You will see these changes reflected on your transcript and when you access your student record through If you provide your course information to an outside institution or agency and they need additional information about the conversion of your credits, please contact the Registrar’s Office ( for assistance.   

The Registrar’s Office has resumed processing transcript requests as of Monday, March 20. Currently, the PDF version of the transcript available on myMSOE has a formatting issue. We are working through a resolution to this issue and intend for it to be resolved by the end of this week. If a longer timeline is needed, we will let you know.

Please complete this form to notify the Registrar’s Office of any concerns you may have regarding the conversion of your academic record.
