Academic Transcripts

The Division of Postsecondary School Authorization maintains student transcripts from previously authorized institutions that have closed, however; the files received from the schools are sometimes incomplete. Please note that failure to locate an academic record from a closed institution does not necessarily invalidate the student’s claim of attendance or the completion of a course(s) or program of study. Unfortunately the Commission only administers and maintains the records as provided by the closed institution and does not have any secondary source beyond the cd rom to search for academic records. This agency regrets any inconvenience this may cause.
