Transcripts must be requested in writing and cannot be requested by phone or via email because we need your signature to release your transcript.
Is there a fee? There is no fee for transcripts at this time.
How long does it take to get my transcript? Our goal is to process them within two business days of receipt of your request.
Can transcripts be faxed? Official transcripts cannot be faxed, but if your college, employer or trade school will accept a faxed transcript, we can send it by fax. Please include the name of the person to whom the fax should be directed, the company name and the fax number.
Can someone else request my transcript? Once you graduate, your transcript becomes your personal record. No one, including parents or spouse, can pick up your transcript without your written permission or Power of Attorney.
What if I want to pick it up in person? You must call and make an appointment to pick up your transcript. If I can, I am happy to accommodate you.

I went to Cicero High School; where is my record? Your record was retained at the Cicero-North Syracuse High School building. Please follow the directions above.
We send final transcripts to the college of choice you list on your Senior Data Sheet, which you complete in May-June of your senior year. If you decide to change your plans after that sheet is submitted, you must contact the Registrar to be sure we have the correct information.
Transcripts are sent out within 7-10 days after the date of graduation. Several pieces of data must be entered for each graduate in order to generate transcripts for the graduating class. Many transcripts are sent out electronically during the week folowing graduation, but others have to be sent via postal mail. Please keep in mind that most colleges use a centralized mail drop meaning that mail goes to a central location and is then distributed to various offices. This adds time to the process so do not assume that the proper office will receive your transcript within 1-2 days of it being sent.
Some colleges will send out notices to students about not having their final transcripts before you've even graduated. If you receive notification from your college that your transcript has not been received, please feel free to contact the Registrar at 315.218.4003 to be sure it was sent and when.
You should obtain any transcripts you need from your guidance counselor. You may obtain transcripts from the Registrar for college visits during the summer.
Throughout the school year we print a report from the NCAA website that lets us know which students have registered with the NCAA. The Registrar then prints transcripts for those students listed on the report and mails them to the NCAA for processing. Initial transcripts are mailed to the NCAA for incoming seniors shortly after school starts in the fall. The NCAA does not request a copy of your transcript until you have completed your junior year.
