PLEASE NOTE: ONLINE PAYMENT DOES NOT SERVE AS A TRANSCRIPT REQUEST! -- you must submit a signed Transcript Request by fax, mail or in person to request a transcript. Please read all details below thoroughly to ensure that your request is properly submitted.
Need your Jewell Transcript? (Please read thoroughly!)
Transcripts for current or former students will be provided upon receipt of a written request, with the proper signature (required by Federal law--FERPA) and proper payment. Requests may be made either in person, by mail, or by fax (email and telephone requests cannot be honored). For your convenience, the Transcript Request form provided here may be printed, completed and signed, then mailed or faxed with proper payment. If faxing your request, you must pay online with your credit card or debit card, and fax your printed payment confirmation with your request. We invite you to use our Transcript Request Center to access the Transcript Request form (which must be printed, filled out and signed) and then to pay online with your credit card or debit card. (Click on link below after reading these instructions.)
Please note: Transcripts will not be issued for former students who still have a financial obligation to the College. The request and payment will be returned/refunded, with a letter or email explaining the problem and stating that, once the account is cleared, the transcript request must be resubmitted with payment. This will delay processing since you must resubmit your request. If you think you may have a financial hold, please contact the Business Office at 816-415-5989 before submitting your request.
Transcript requests are processed in the order in which they are received. Please allow 2 to 3 business days (from date received) for processing. At peak times (registration, graduation, first and last weeks of semesters, etc.), the turn-around time may be longer. There is a charge of $5 for each transcript requested (whether official or unofficial). (No charge for currently enrolled students.)
Rush Service: Any request for processing within 24 hours generates an additional $10 Rush Fee. Rush orders with proper payment will be processed by the next business day (based on receipt of request). This is a processing fee--NOT rush mail service. No overnight or express mail service is available. Transcripts processed with rush service are still sent via regular U.S. mail.
Faxing transcripts: Faxed transcripts are typically deemed "unofficial" by educational institutions, employers, etc., so be sure the recipient has agreed to accept a faxed transcript before ordering a transcript to be faxed. An additional $5.00 Fax Fee is charged for faxing a transcript (total $10.00 for processing and faxing).
Acceptable forms of payment: Cash, Check or Money Order (made payable to William Jewell College), Online Payment with Credit Card or Debit Card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover). We must have your signed Transcript Request, regardless of payment method.
If you cannot download the Transcript Request form, you may send your own written request and payment with the required information listed below. (Request forms are also available at the Registrar’s counter located in Curry Library.) The following information must be included on all transcript requests:
- Full name (include all names under which you may have been registered at WJC, i.e., maiden name, married name, etc.). Name on transcript will be the same as the name on your official College record. (Proper name change documentation must be submitted in order to make name changes on the official record--see Name/Address Change.)
- Social Security Number
- Date of Birth
- Year last attended (or current student)
- Current address and phone number (in case we need to reach you)
- Number of transcripts needed (designate number of official and number of unofficial)
- Name of institution or organization and address where transcript is to be sent (complete mailing address required). It is also helpful to include a recipient's name or department, if available.
- If a transcript is to be sent to you and needs to be “official” for the purpose of submitting elsewhere, please request an “official” transcript. Do not open the envelope with the stamp over the seal when you receive it. Most institutions and employers will not accept a transcript issued to the student if it has been opened.
- Signature (required by Federal law) – Transcript requests without proper signature will not be processed. It is against the law to order a transcript for another person or to sign another person's name on such request.
