Student records are more than just your grades. The transcript is the primary holder of your record as a student at the university. Not only does it reflect your academic history, it serves to verify and distinguish your degree(s). However, you do not need to provide a transcript to verify your enrollment for most instances.
We verify enrollment and degree via the National Student Clearinghouse for a majority of our student population - an online service provided for students, alumni and any other party requiring this information. All verifications provided by the university are done so with full adherence to the Federal Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) to ensure the integrity and privacy of the student record.
William & Mary complies with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Crime Statistics Act. Crime statistics and the annual Campus Safety Report are available from the Office of Institutional Analysis and Effectiveness.
