Where do I access or make a request for my student records? Accessing/requesting an Ontario Student Transcript (OST)
An Ontario Student Transcript (OST) is an official and legal record of a student’s achievement at the secondary school level in Ontario. It includes diploma and/or certificate information, as applicable. All credits accumulated at secondary schools in Ontario will appear on one OST. The OST is retained by the last secondary school (or its board) that you attended.
Students who have graduated or retired from school shall request an Ontario Student Transcript from the Board office by completing the Board's Records Request Form.
If you are a retired student and are applying to college and university programs, you can arrange and pay to forward your transcript with an electronic process by following the appropriate link below:
- For the application to college, please access http://ontariocolleges.ca/
- For the application to university, please access http://www.ouac.on.ca/
If you are a retired student requesting an OST as proof of graduation as part of a job application or any other reason OR if you are a retired student and have applied to a post-secondary school directly, please complete this Records Request Form.
To request other records, please visit the Board's Requesting Ontario Student Transcripts and Other Student Records webpage for further instructions.
Accessing/requesting a diploma
Only one official OSSD/Certificate is issued by the Ministry. If a student did not pick up their diploma at their school’s graduation commencement, the school may have kept it. Misplaced diplomas cannot be replaced but the diploma achieved is noted on the Ontario Student Transcript, which is the legal record of a student’s achievement at the secondary school level in Ontario.
