Closed School Records
Obtaining a Transcript When Your School Has Closed

Every private licensed school is required to have arrangements with a repository that will hold the academic records after the school closes.  If your private licensed school has closed, you should be able to obtain a copy of your transcript by contacting the designated repository.  For a list of closed schools and the designated repository, click on  Closed School Records (PDF).

The repository may charge a reasonable processing fee.

Please note that the repository is not required to maintain a copy of diplomas.  The transcript constitutes the academic record that is maintained by the repository.

If your school is not listed please contact the Division of Higher & Career Education at (717) 783-8228.
