  2. By mail: send a signed letter to:
    Registrar’s Office
    Attn: Transcripts
    New Jersey City University
    2039 Kennedy Blvd.
    Jersey City, NJ 07305-1597  
  3. On the Internet: or 

Students may request separate undergraduate and graduate transcripts, but no portion of the undergraduate or graduate transcript record may be deleted. Procedures for the issuance of transcripts are governed by the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) as amended (34 CFR Part 99; 20 U.S.C. 1232g). 

Transcripts are prepared by the Registrar’s Office in accordance with the policies of the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Officers of Admission. Where New Jersey City University transcripts show credits hours earned at other institutions, the official transcripts of those institutions have become part of the student’s permanent file in the Registrar’s Office. New Jersey City University does not make copies of other institutions’ transcripts. To obtain transcripts from institutions other than New Jersey City University, students must contact the other institutions directly. 

Transcripts should be requested at least ten days prior to the time needed. No transcript shall be granted to any student or sent to a specified organization until all fees have been paid and other University obligations have been met. The Registrar’s Office has the right to deny a transcript request from any student who abuses this service. 

Effective January 1, 2012, the University will not issue an official transcript if a student owes a past due balance on a student account or has defaulted on repayment of a student loan. 

A one-time transcript fee of $25.00 will be charged to all students in their first terms at New Jersey City University. Requests are limited to 10 per year for regular-service transcripts. A $10.00 fee is charged for one-hour service.
