Former Student Records 


The Office of Former Student Records maintains student records for the majority of Chicago Public Elementary and High Schools. With written authorization, the department can provide a copy of a high school transcript, verify a graduation date from high school and/or provide a copy of an elementary registration card or medical records. If you require medical records you may receive them ONLY if you are 27 years of age or younger at the time of completing the application.

You may complete our process one of two ways: Online or by printing out the application, completing it and either faxing it or mailing it in to the appropriate location noted on the application. The first request is complimentary, but each additional request requires a $4.00 money order made payable to Chicago Public Schools.

1989 to the present 10-15 business days from the time we receive your request
Prior to 1989 5-6 weeks from the time we receive your request

**Please note that we ONLY mail out transcripts. We may mail them to your desired location directly. Remember to allow     extra time in receiving your transcripts since it is expedited through the US postal service.

**Former Student Records DOES NOT hold any medical records on file prior to 1989.
