The Registrar’s Office functions as the steward of student records, and in addition to managing student matriculation and providing student immigration and residence support, creates, safeguards, and preserves academic records.
In this capacity, the following documents pertaining to a student’s official standing in the Barenboim-Said Akademie can be obtained from the Registrar: Transcripts, Enrollment Certificate (Immatrikulationsbescheinigung), and Verification of Study Certificate (Studienbescheinigung).
An official transcript is a record of a student’s academic standing. A transcript includes a complete listing of all courses a student has taken, the credits and grades earned for those courses, and the student’s overall Grade Point Average (GPA). The reverse side of each official transcript page contains information on the Barenboim-Said Akademie’s grading and credit systems. Transcripts are often required for graduate school applications, school transfer applications, and job applications.
Enrollment Certificates (Immatrikulationsbescheinigung) are issued by the Registrar’s Office twice per academic year: in the first week prior to the start of the Winter Semester and in the first week of the Summer Semester. Enrollment Certificates are valid only for the semester for which they are issued and serve as proof of enrollment at the Barenboim-Said Akademie to outside institutions, such as city and governmental agencies, banks, insurance, etc.
Enrollment Certificates are issued in German and can be issued in English upon request.
Verification of Study Certificate
A Verification of Study Certificate can be requested to attest to proper enrollment at the Barenboim-Said Akademie. Verification of Study Certificates include a basic description of the student’s degree program, their first date of enrollment and their expected date of graduation.
Verification of Study Certificates can be issued both in English and in German. Please be sure to specify the language that you need it when requesting the document.
