Electronic Transcript Ordering - New Fall 2017

From Dan Palubniak, Registrar, Nov. 1, 2017:

RVCC moved to a new electronic transcript request and processing system with Parchment, Inc. in mid-October.  This new system allows students to order an official academic transcript and have it delivered to any valid college or individual email address worldwide on the same day.  The option to order paper copies is still available, but these take several days to process and deliver.

Since a number of your students may need to order transcripts as we move closer to the conclusion of the fall semester, please inform them that they will need to use this new system.

Transcript orders can be submitted by accessing www.raritanval.edu/transcript.  This site also provides detailed information about this new system.

There's a transcript order menu option in the Lion's Den under Student Services that will take someone to the ordering page above.

No printers networked on a public computer

Occasionally students discover that there are no printers installed on the machine that they are using. According to MIS, this is because the printers are installed with a network group policy and this occasionally fails and does not install the printers correctly. Restarting the machine will fix this problem.

Mathematica

The Mathematica software is available on Library computers. It is actually called 'Wolfram Mathematica'. Users will need to click on the start menu followed by 'All Programs' and scroll down to 'W' to access it.
