Ontario student transcript and other student records
The Ontario Student Transcript (OST) is the legal document that lists the credits that a secondary school student has earned towards fulfillment of the requirements for the graduation diploma. This webpage will direct former students and third party requests to the process to request a transcript or other student records. If you are a student still enrolled in secondary school, please contact your school’s Guidance Department for assistance.
To obtain psycho-educational assessment records, please contact the Student Support and Program Services (SSPS) staff at the Grant Evans Education Centre. These records are retain until student age of 31 years. Release of records is in accordance with the Personal Health Information Protection Act (PHIPA). The request including the form is processed by SSPS staff. Contact information is found on the Contact Us web page.
NOTE: Student records are confidential and can only be issued upon the written request of the student. Student records are subject to the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA). The remainder of this web page addresses requesting a legal transcript or replacement diploma. Please be advised that the replacement diploma paper must be obtained from the Queen’s Printer and can take time to be received by the school for reprinting.
