Records Requests

You may request student records and transcripts online. Some requests will incur fees. The fee schedule is listed on the start page of the order process.


The following records may be requested online:

  • Transcripts/Immunizations for current students and alumni.
  • Proof of Graduation documents (if grades are not needed).
  • Central Records does not provide duplicate diplomas.

School records for K-12 students transferring to another school or district (these records must be requesting by the enrolling school) must be requested online:

Effective July 1, 2021, in an effort to provide an enhanced and more secure service for our transfer students, all records requests for our former (transferring) students must be made online using K-12 Transfer. Official records requests submitted by fax, phone, email and mail will no longer be accepted by K-12 schools or districts. Please note there is not a fee for K-12 schools or districts.

After the request has been submitted, if you any further questions or concerns, please either:

  • Contact Central Records at 910-251-2963 if you are a former student

  • Contact your high school if you are a current student requesting a transcript.
