Transcripts and Records
Andover Newton transcripts do not reflect transfer credits from other institutions. If you transferred credits from elsewhere toward your Andover Newton degree, you must contact the other institution and ask they too send a transcript so that the recipient of your choosing receives a complete academic record.
Due to data transfer currently underway, please note that as of June 1, 2019, all transcript requests for Andover Newton Theological School and Bangor Theological Seminary must be sent to Yale Divinity School’s Office of the Registrar. All duplicate diploma requests must be sent to Andover Newton Seminary.
Per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), we cannot release a transcript without the individual’s written consent and signature. This means we cannot accept telephone requests and can only accept email requests which include, in an attachment, a scanned copy of your signed transcript request.
Effective June 1, 2019 there is no fee for ANTS and BTS transcripts. No transcripts are issued to students with unpaid accounts in the Business Office.
Before requesting your transcript or replacement diploma, please see the note at the top of this page.

While no graduate has the right to a duplicate diploma, Andover Newton Seminary may, at their discretion, authorize the issuance of a replacement in certain limited cases. For example, in some instances of loss or damage to the original. If the diploma is lost, the person requesting the duplicate must certify on the Application for Duplicate Diploma that the replacement will be returned if the original is ever found. The duplicate diploma, when printed, will be marked “iteratum.” No duplicate will be printed until at least one year has elapsed since the loss unless the original is known to have been destroyed by fire, flood, or similar cause. If the original diploma is damaged, the applicant must return as much of the diploma as can be salvaged.
When requesting a duplicate or replacement diploma, please note the following:
All applicants for a replacement or duplicate diploma must complete and return an Application for Duplicate Diploma.
Verification of your signature by a Notary Public is required.
The applicant for a replacement diploma must provide a statement regarding the loss of or damage to the original that is satisfactory to Andover Newton.
Damaged originals must be returned to Andover Newton.
Applicants seeking a replacement for a lost diploma must agree to return the replacement if the original is found.
Duplicate diplomas will be processed upon the receipt of the completed application form and its attachments, including a money order (checks will not be accepted) in the amount of $150.00 (payable to Andover Newton Seminary) to cover printing and handling costs. Please allow approximately 3-6 months after you have placed your order for printing of the new diploma. Applications received from April 1st-July 1st may require additional processing time.
Expedited processing (4 weeks) is available for an additional $100.00.
