Why is Villanova University charging me for my transcripts?

  • 24/7 access to ordering site.   Current and former students may submit a request from any computer connected to the internet anywhere in the world, regardless of dates of attendance.  Requests are authenticated through the student portal or through signature authentication.   There is no longer a need to send in a written request for transcript.
  • Improved tracking service. Order updates are emailed to students, and can be sent via text if the student elects notification by text. Order status and order history can be checked on-line at anytime.
  • Electronic Delivery options. Current and former students, with first attendance since September 1984 (non-credit students since 1999), have the option to select electronic delivery of transcripts by providing a valid recipient email address or selecting from a database of network recipients.  Electronic delivery is recommended.   This enables Villanova to electronically deliver transcripts in a safe, secure and efficient manner to students and student designated recipients such as Universities and Colleges, employers, etc., in accordance with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended (FERPA).    Students selecting electronic delivery will receive an email notification indicating the delivery of the student’s official academic transcript to the student designated recipient.   Once the student designated recipient receives the official academic transcript, the student will receive a second email notification regarding the delivery of the transcript.

More transcript information

All financial, disciplinary and registrar obligations (i.e., Transcript Holds) must be cleared before any transcript request will be honored.

The University issues academic transcripts only for academic work completed at Villanova University. Requests for transcripts of courses taken at other institutions must be directed to those institutions, including international institutions where study-abroad work was completed and credits transferred to Villanova.

Evaluative information such as courses completed, grades earned, etc. cannot be issued to an outside party unless the student/former student has given the Registrar written permission to release this information to that party. The Registrar may, however, disclose "directory information" as allowed under The Family Education Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA) without special permission. A list of the directory information can be reviewed at the Disclosure of Student Records web page.
