Student Transcript Requests During COVID-19 School Closure Period
The Ontario Student Transcript (OST) is the official record of a student's secondary school academic achievement in the province of Ontario. Student records are confidential and transcripts are issued only on the written request of the student or parent/guardian (when student is under 18 years of age) and are subject to the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act (MFIPPA).
Like many processes during the current period of COVID-19 related school closures, the process for requesting transcripts and our ability to provide actual copies of transcripts has changed. If the last secondary school you attended was within the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board (DPCDSB) and you require your transcript, please use the applicable process below to request your Ontario Student Transcript.
1. Applying to an Ontario College through the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS)
If you are a former student of the DPCDSB and are applying to an Ontario college through the Ontario Application Service (OCAS), request your OST using the online electronic transcript request service available through OCAS.
To use this service you must:
- Be a past student of the DPCDSB
- Apply to a minimum of one Ontario college
- Pay the college application and transcript fees
To order your transcript online, go to OCAS.ca
If you are a current student attending a secondary school within the DPCDSB, and are applying to Ontario colleges through OCAS, you do not need to request your transcript. Your transcript information will be forwarded to OCAS on your behalf.
2. To Request your Transcript for all Other Purposes
Requests for transcripts are being processed centrally by the DPCDSB's Admissions Department. Please complete the Transcript Request Form and submit this form by email to email@example.com. Note that during this time of COVID-19 related school closures, we have no access to schools and are not providing transcripts directly to requestors. We will only send transcripts electronically directly to the institution. We will acknowledge receipt of the request by email and advise once when the transcript has been sent to the institution.
Cost to Order a Transcript
Fees for processing transcripts are waived during this period of school closure.
Other Important Facts
Any discrepancies in courses or marks will be resolved by the home school. The DPCDSB will not change any mark or credit information.
The board DOES NOT print Report Cards and Ontario Education Numbers (OEN) are not released via the phone. The OEN is printed on your transcript if you were currently registered in a DPCDSB school in the school year 2002-2003 or after. If you require your OEN, please request a transcript via the procedures above.
