High school transcripts can be requested from the individual's high school record office unless the school has been closed, consolidated or annexed, according to the Arkansas Department of Education. A student can make a request in writing to the school or the school district to obtain a high school transcript.
High school transcripts are maintained by the school's record office and can be requested through an online form, in person or in writing. When requesting a high school transcript, the student must include a birth date, full name, years attended, items requested such as a transcript or diploma and a complete address of where to send the documentation, according to the Central Kitsap School District. The purpose of the request may also be required. For example, students who need verification of grades or courses taken for a job, entrance to college or for personal records must state this.
The request must include a valid signature from the student, according to the Central Kitsap School District. A student under 18 years of age is required to submit a parent or guardian signature with the request. Students can also request that high school transcripts are forwarded directly to a college, university or place of employment if desired. Some schools may charge a fee to obtain student records.
