Transcripts are the school records that document a student’s attendance over multiple years along with the classes taken and grades earned during each school year. In Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) the school records move up the grade levels along with the students.
A request for a student's transcript (or other school records) requires a signed release from the parent or legal guardian (if the student is under 18 years of age), or from the student if he or she is 18 years of age or older.
Where to Make Your Request for Records:
As of June, 2013
How to Request Records:
You may use the form found at http://www.fcps.edu/it/forms/it9.pdf or write your own request. All requests must include the following information:
Submit your request via mail (or in person) to the appropriate location along with payment and proof of identity. The cost for each request is $5.00 for the first six pages copied. Please make checks or money orders payable to FCPS. Credit cards are not accepted.
You may obtain FCPS elementary, middle, and high school transcripts at the same time with the same request (provided the student attended all three levels at FCPS). This can save you money and perhaps avoid another trip to obtain records.
How to Request A Replacement Diploma:
You may request a replacement diploma rather than a transcript if that is your preference. The replacement diploma process will take at least 45 days and the cost is $35.00. Be aware that a replacement diploma is not a copy; it is a reprint and will be marked "Replacement". The replacement will be the current diploma layout with the prior year of graduation documented.
To request a replacement diploma, open the Replacement Diploma form, IS-157, and follow the instructions.
