Transcript Requests, Degree Verifications and Replacement Diplomas

Transcript Requests

Your academic transcript is a record issue by the College to communicate your full academic history. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) requires that transcripts of student records be released only upon the written consent of the student.

To request your transcript, you’ll first have to set up an account with our partner, Parchment.

  • Transcripts remain free of charge for all current and former students.
  • Transcripts will be issued only if all financial obligations to the College have been met.
  • Parents, relatives, friends may not request a transcript for you. We strictly adhere to federal guidelines regarding the release of student records. We, therefore, cannot release transcripts without a written request that includes your signature. We also cannot allow someone else to pick transcripts up for you without your written permission.
  • Both hard copies and electronic copies bear the official college seal.

F&M License Plate for Pennsylvania Residents

The Office of Alumni Relations is pleased to offer, through the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), a Franklin & Marshall College Pennsylvania auto license plate.

If you are the registered owner of a vehicle in Pennsylvania, have a Pennsylvania driver’s license and are a current student, alumnus or alumna, parent, friend or staff member of F&M, you can apply for an F&M plate. As with other PennDOT specialty plates, F&M’s are manufactured using standard PA plate design colors (blue, white and yellow). The Franklin & Marshall name appears across the bottom of the plate, while Benjamin Franklin and John Marshall appear on the left side of the plate.

How to Order Your Plate

  1. Obtain an application form by downloading the MV-904SP form below or by calling the Office of Alumni Relations at 1-866-925-5500.

  2. Enclose a check, money order, or credit card authorization form for $32, payable to Franklin & Marshall College. The cost for the plate is a one-time fee of $32. This fee is in addition to your yearly registration fees.
  3. Send your payment and application form to:
Office of Alumni Relations
Franklin & Marshall College
PO Box 3003
Lancaster, PA 17604-3003

Additional Details

  • You can only get a Franklin & Marshall plate through the College, not from a PennDOT location. Do not send your application to PennDOT; doing so will delay delivery of your license plate.

  • You may transfer your Franklin & Marshall plate to a new vehicle.

  • Your Franklin & Marshall plate can be personalized for an additional fee of $128.

  • You will not receive a refund if you cancel your request after the order is placed.

  • You cannot receive a specific plate number; numbers are issued in sequence as orders are processed. We regret the inconvenience.

  • Special organization plates are restricted to passenger vehicles, trucks, and motor homes with a registered gross weight of not more than 9,000 pounds.

  • You cannot get plates for motorcycles and trailers, as they do not qualify for special organization registration plates.

  • If you have any questions regarding the F&M Specialty License Plate Program, contact Alumni Relations at 1-866-925-5500.
