Transcript Requests

As of June 24, 2015, WTU will no longer directly issue student transcripts. Requests for transcripts should be directed to the Registrar’s Office at St. Bonaventure University using the printable Transcript Request Form provided on that page.

Those seeking WTU transcripts are encouraged to contact the St. Bonaventure University Registrar’s Office prior to sending in the form to verify the best process for completing a successful transcript request. The St. Bonaventure University Registrar may provide further specific direction in processing requests for WTU transcripts. Please note some delay in processing may occur while the SBU Registrar transitions the WTU transcripts into their processing system.

Note About the Disposition of the WTU Website

As of June 30, 2015, all official WTU administrative operations will cease. After this date, those seeking transcripts for their time at the Union should follow the instructions provided on the Transcripts page.

This website will remain operational at least through December 15, 2015. After this time, information about the Union’s history will continue to exist online via its Wikipedia entry. The domain wtu.edu will be returned to the exclusive domain registrar for .edu domains, .EDUcause. Due to restrictions on the use of .edu domains, the wtu.edu domain cannot be used for anything other than an educational institution of higher learning.
