In compliance with federal law as established by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as Amended, transcripts will not be issued without the written consent of the student, as demonstrated by an original signature of the student approving the release of the transcript. Computer-generated signatures are not acceptable; accordingly, e-mail requests for transcripts will not be honored.
In addition to being mailed or picked up in person, transcripts can be faxed. Students should be aware, however, that many colleges/universities, employers, etc. will not consider a faxed transcript to be an “official” transcript for their purposes. William Penn University transcripts are printed on security paper with a hand-embossed seal.
