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, you must show legal documentation of both name changes, other than through marriage. Acceptable legal documentation of name changes can be a copy of a Naturalization Certificate (front and back sides) or a Court document stating the name changed, or a statement from the Social Security Office confirming to the use of both names.

All responses to records requests are mailed. We do not fax records. Records may be picked up, and you must show valid government-issued picture identification. Processing time for records requests is approximately one week.

Adults (former students) must request their own transcripts. In order to comply with the privacy laws, proof of identification is required.

Parents may request only their child’s transcript be mailed directly from the Records Office to a college or school. This is the only exception.
