Student Records Access & Confidentiality (FERPA)

The Law School Office of the Registrar, located on the 4th floor (Room 4-58) of Belson Hall, is open Monday through Thursday: 8:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., and Fridays: 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., unless otherwise posted.


As part of the transition to a remote workforce and to assist efforts of containment we are not able to process transcripts on a daily basis. However, please be assured that the Registrar's Office is still working to fulfill transcript requests weekly until we are no longer able to do so. We appreciate your patience at this time. The health and well-being of our community remains the University’s highest priority.

St. John's University is pleased to provide transcripts free of charge to all students and alumni. There are three ways you can order a transcript of your academic record at St. John’s University School of Law.

Online Requests
Current students should order transcripts via the web.  To do so, log in to UIS here or via MySJU. Recent alumni (1992 to present) who continue to have access to St. John’s Central may also order transcripts on-line.  Web transcripts are usually printed daily.

Mail-In and Fax-In Requests
Please note the following information does not apply to undergraduate or graduate students.

Law school alumni may order transcripts by emailing or faxing a request.  To do so print and fill out the Transcript Request form and send it to the email address/fax number provided on the form.

Students whose accounts are in arrears will not be issued a transcript.  For payment information, please contact Student Financial Services.

St. John’s University recognizes that some students may prefer to identify themselves by a First Name and/or Middle Name other than their Legal Name. For this reason beginning with the Fall 2018 semester, the University will enable students to use a Preferred Name where possible in the course of University business and education.

Students may request this service by completing a Preferred Name Change Request form (PDF) in person in the Office of the Registrar. The student’s Preferred First Name and/or Middle Name may be used in many University contexts, such as MySJU, Blackboard, class rosters and ID Cards. Please note the University is legally required to use a student’s Legal Name for official records, however, whenever reasonably possible a student’s Preferred Name will be used.

Frequently Asked Questions
