Academic records for students are available from the school registrar during enrollment and for two years following withdrawal. Records may then be obtained from the Records Management Department. Academic records are maintained and released in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
Records requests may be placed online for current and former Anchorage School District students. Online requests may be submitted by:
- the parent or guardian if the student is under the age of 18
- the eligible student who is 18 or older
During the school year, online requests for current students or former students attending the District within the past two years go directly to the school for processing. Records Management processes all online requests made by former students who have exited the District more than two years ago. All requests made when the schools are closed in the summer are routed to the Records Management Department.
The following records may be requested online:
- Transcript – Certified (signed and sealed)
- Transcript – Personal Copy
- Graduation Verification Letter – Certified Only
The Anchorage School District does not archive diplomas or GED's. Students who received their GED in Alaska may contact the GED Testing Program with the State of Alaska to request copies.
Former students who need an educational record not listed above may contact us for assistance.
In-person requests may be submitted to Records Management at the ASD Education Center during our listed hours. Request forms are available at our counter inside the main entrance. Forms must be completed in full and a valid government-issued Photo ID is required.
Third Party Requests
Third party requests for transcripts must be accompanied by a written authorization from the owner of the record specifically identifying the requestor as his or her agent. This includes parents of students 18 and older who are no longer attending ASD schools. The third party must present a valid photo ID as well.
