Transcripts/Student Records

All students studying in Toronto have an Ontario Student Transcript (OST). Transcripts are records of student achievement and are required for post-secondary institutions, employers and for a number of other purposes. All school boards in Ontario are mandated to maintain the Ontario Student Record (OSR) folder including a copy of the Official Student Transcript (OST) for 55 years after the student is demitted.  Transcripts are available to all former and current students on request and for a fee.

If you are still enrolled in secondary school, please contact your school directly for assistance except during the months of July and August only, due to school closure, all former and current students must contact the Central Transcript Office.
