Frequently Asked Questions
- Can't I just go to my old high school to obtain a copy of my transcript?
In some cases, you can. Many HISD high schools keep the most recent five-to-seven years' graduation records and student transcripts on file at their campuses before transferring them to the Hattie Mae White Educational Support Center (Inactive Records Department).
Check the list below to see where your file is located. If you graduated (or withdrew from school) BEFORE the year listed in the column next to your high school, then your records are no longer located at that campus. Please use the procedures outlined above to obtain a copy of your transcript.
- What if I never made it to high school?
Students who did not attend HISD high schools (but did attend HISD middle schools) should contact the last HISD middle school they attended to obtain a copy of their transcript.
