Transcripts and Records
Student records are confidential. Andover Newton will release information only at the request of a student or an appropriate institution or official. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) requires that all transcript requests be in writing, signed and dated by the person to whom the record belongs. For the protection of students and alumni/ae, all transcript requests must be submitted in writing and personally signed. E-mailed requests can be honored for unofficial transcripts only. Andover Newton does not send transcripts by fax or e-mail.
No transcripts are issued to students with unpaid accounts in the Business Office.
Andover Newton manages transcripts for graduates of Bangor Theological Seminary as one element in that institution’s 2013 plan for discontinuation of degree programs. All Andover Newton policies and procedures apply to BTS transcripts, and the fee for BTS transcripts is $8.00.
All transcript requests should be submitted in writing to the Registrar’s Office at least one week in advance of the date on which they are needed, and at least two weeks in advance during registration and grading periods. Official transcripts are $5 each. Unofficial transcripts are free.

If your original diploma from Andover Newton is lost, stolen or destroyed, you can obtain a replacement by filing a Replacement Diploma Request Form with the Office of the Registrar. Replacement diplomas are reissued for a fee of $200.00 (US).
Please direct your replacement diploma request to:
Andover Newton Theological School
Office of the Registrar
Wayland, MA 01778
In order to process this request, you must return the damaged diploma. You must also return the original for a legal name change. This is because no graduate can hold two diplomas. It may take six to eight weeks to prepare the document. When it is ready, we will send it via certified mail.
