Records Policy

All requests must be submitted in writing. Proper government-issued picture identification is required. If you have changed your name since attending our schools other than through marriage, a copy of the legal document showing both your old and new name is required. Acceptable legal documentation of name changes can be a copy of a Naturalization Certificate (front and back sides), court document stating the name change, or a statement from the Social Security Office confirming the use of both names.

Records processing time is approximately 3 to 5 business days from the time received. Records may be picked up or mailed to yourself, a college, an employer, or other agency. We are unable to send records electronically prior to the class of 2015. Class of 2015 and forward may order high school transcripts online using Parchment.

Students over 18 must request their own transcripts. In order to comply with privacy laws, proof of identification is required.
