The content of the official transcript is converted into a PDF document and delivered to the recipient by our contracted provider, Credentials Inc. Please see question 5 regarding Electronic Delivery and Verification for further information.
Mail your transcript Transcripts are normally mailed directly to the person, school, or company you indicated. Please fill in the appropriate mailing address. Remember to include the specific recipient and department when sending transcripts to a large institution, such as another University.
Transcripts ordered for delivery to a Villanova campus address will be delivered via Villanova campus mail. Please indicate the name of the recipient and department or office when addressing to a Villanova campus address.

Faxing or emailing your transcript Villanova University will not, under any circumstances, send transcripts via fax or email. Please select electronic delivery if you wish to have an official transcript sent electronically and you have attended Villanova since September 1984 (main campus degree students) or January 1999 (on campus non-credit students). See the FAQ on electronic transcripts for more information.
All transcripts released by Villanova, both paper and electronic, are official and may be verified by the Office of the Registrar or College of Professional Studies. No unofficial transcripts will be issued. When ordering an electronic transcript, the student should make certain that the recipient is willing to receive an official e-transcript. Current Students and recent alumni may view their unofficial academic transcript online via their myNOVA or NOVASIS accounts.
The University now offers official electronic transcripts. The content of the official transcript is converted into a PDF document and delivered to the recipient by Credentials Inc., the authorized delivery agent selected by the University. This is the most secure and the quickest method to deliver an official transcript, but the student should make certain that the recipient is willing to receive an official e-transcript.
E-transcript requests are processed 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Once processed, the e-transcript is immediately sent to the designated recipient.
When the e-transcript has been released by the Office of the Registrar or College of Professional Studies, the transcript recipient will receive an email containing a secure link to access the official e-transcript and a separate email with a password confirm their access and download the transcript. The email will be sent by “Credentials Solutions.” Recipients who seem not to have received the e-transcript should check their spam folder to make sure the email was not intercepted by their spam filter. The recipient will have 40 days to view the official transcript. If not viewed during that period, another e-transcript must be requested by the student. Once viewed by the recipient, the transcript will remain available for 48 hours before being deleted from the Credentials Solutions server.
Students provide their email address when ordering official e-transcripts. Then, as an added benefit of the e-transcript service, the students will receive two notification emails: one when the e-transcript has been sent and another when the e-transcript has been opened by the recipient. Both emails will be sent by “Credentials Solutions.” If the first email notification is not received within one business day, make sure the notification was not intercepted by a spam filter.
Although the University provides official electronic transcripts, some recipients may require official paper transcripts. Confirm that the recipient accepts official electronic transcripts prior to submitting the official electronic transcript request.
The recipient has 40 days to view the e-transcript, but once viewed, the transcript will remain available for only 48 hours on the Credentials, Inc. server. If a saved copy is necessary, a recipient can download the transcript and save a copy.
No matter which storage method is used, the recipient must make sure the document is secure and FERPA guidelines are followed.
Paper transcript orders are processed as quickly as possible and normally leave the Office of the Registrar within two business days of receiving the order. At the end of the semester, orders may require more time due to the volume of requests normally received.
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.
