Student Records and Transcripts

In response to a high volume of requests for student records, the Arizona Department of Education has created this resource page to better assist its stakeholders.

Please note: The Arizona Department of Education does not store transcripts or records for students in Arizona public or private schools. Instead, records are stored at the local school and district level and can be requested by contacting the appropriate entity below:

Public Schools (District and Charter)

To obtain transcripts from an Arizona K-12 public school you will need to directly contact that school.  You may search for school district/charter school contact information by utilizing our website’s Public School Search at www.ade.az.gov/edd.

Please be advised that most high schools are unable to accommodate requests for duplicate diplomas. However, we suggest that you contact the school directly as records retention policies may vary. In many cases schools are able to provide an official copy of your complete transcripts, which includes a date of graduation.

Closed Charter Schools

For closed charter schools you may contact the Arizona State Board for Charter Schools (ASBCS) at (602) 364-3080. ASBCS is the custodian of records for charter schools and can process your request for a transcript. You may also submit a request through the ASBCS website at http://www.asbcs.az.gov/contact.asp.

Private Schools

To obtain a transcript from an Arizona K-12 private school you will need to directly contact that school. If the school has closed, you will need to contact the organization responsible for the administration of the school if possible or reach out to former students, faculty members, or administrators to see if they have additional information on where the records may be stored.

Private and Vocational Colleges

To obtain a transcript from a private or vocational college that is closed or unable to be contacted, please call the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education at (602) 542-5709. You may also visit their website for more information.

Community Colleges and Universities

To request a transcript from an Arizona community college or public university, you will need to reach out to the school directly. You can find their contact information at our College & University Resource Center.
