Alumni Engagement FAQ

How can I access my alumni email?

Optional email accounts will be available for alumni who have graduated 1990-present. Visit our Alumni Email page to set up your account with three easy steps. You will need your PAWS ID, if you do not know your PAWS ID you must contact the Help Desk.

How can I get an alumni library card?

To obtain your TCNJ Alumni Library Card, you must come to the Alumni Engagement Office in Green Hall, Room 215. Upon receiving the card and information form, you will need to bring your driver’s license to the library to activate your card.

This card grants Alumni borrowing privileges at the R. Barbara Gitenstein Library. Alumni can check out up to 20 books at once and access databases and journals through the public library terminals in the R. Barbara Gitenstein Library (there is no access while off campus).

How can I access my transcripts?

Current students and former students who attended the College after 1990 may request official transcripts using the “E-transcript” method via PAWS. The National Student Clearinghouse charges a $3.50 processing fee for each Electronic Transcript requested.

Students who attended during or after 2000 must request their transcript through PAWS.

Students who attended before 2000 must either submit a downloadable PDF Transcript Request Form or complete the online Transcript Request Form.
