Official Transcripts

Online Requests

If you have attended William Paterson before the Fall of 1979, you will not be able to request transcripts online. Please complete this paper application, and mail it to Student Enrollment Services.

Effective November 5, 2013, William Paterson University is now sending and receiving transcripts electronically through the NJ Statewide Transfer Initiative (otherwise known as NJ Transfer).

All student transcript requests sent to participating institutions will now be submitted electronically.

For a full listing of participating New Jersey Colleges and Universities, please visit here.

All other requests sent to non-participating institutions will continue to be sent via standard USPS delivery.

All online requests regardless of delivery method are processed within the next business day. There is a $10.00 charge for each official transcript. Holds must be cleared before transcript requests can be processed.  Failure to make adequate payment will result in a placement of a hold that will prevent future transcript requests.

If you are applying to a William Paterson Undergraduate or Graduate program, you don’t have to request your transcripts from WP. Please contact the appropriate WP Admissions Office for further details.

Always check your free unofficial transcripts and verify final grades, GPA, and degrees posted, before requesting official transcripts.
