A student is the only one who may order an academic certification or transcript for his or her academic record. If you wish to receive either one, you should ask your son or daughter to submit a request and have it mailed to your address. A new request needs to be made each term.
See below for basic descriptions.
An academic certification is an official document provided by the Registrar verifying dates of attendance, award of degree, and student status (full-time or part-time) by term. It is typically requested for health insurance, visa, employment and credit verification purposes. There is no fee for this service.
A transcript is an official record of a student’s entire academic record at Monmouth University. It reflects all coursework and grades by term. Other information on the transcript includes:
Currently enrolled students, former students and alumni may obtain an official copy of their transcript by submitting a completed Request for Transcript of Academic Record form. There is no fee for printed transcripts provided by the Registrar's Office.
Electronic transcripts may also be requested through the National Student Clearinghouse, these are also official PDF copies which can be produced on demand. If a transcript is immediately required, this is the method that must be chosen by students, former students, and alumni.
NOTE: Student transcripts cannot be produced for anyone whose record has been put on hold for an outstanding University obligation.
