The education division can provide high school equivalency, or HSE, (previously GED) transcripts for those earning a HSE diploma while incarcerated in a Tennessee state prison.

To acquire a copy of your HSE transcript, the HSE Transcript Request form must be completed in its entirety and signed by the HSE recipient.  Please click here for the HSE Transcript Request form (in fillable pdf format).

Upon receipt of your completed request, a copy will be mailed to the address provided within the HSE Transcript Request form.  Please allow 7-10 business days to receive your transcript.  Failure to complete the form in its entirety or provide a signature may result in a delay in the issuance of your transcript.
