Student Transcript Requests
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).
If the last secondary school you attended resided within the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and you require your transcript, please use the applicable process below to request your Ontario Student Transcript.

Other Important Facts
Any discrepancies in courses or marks will be resolved by the home school. The board will not change any mark or credit information. If a student earns a diploma as a result of successful completion of a summer school course, the home school must update the student’s information in order to have the diploma information printed on the transcript. For university and college applicants who left day school in June 2016, summer school marks and credits will be electronically transmitted and marks will be available to OCAS and OUAC after August 19, 2016.
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 Dufferin-Peel CDSB school in the school year 2002-2003 or after. If you require your OEN, please request a transcript via the procedures above.
The Board will only process transcript requests during the summer months when schools are closed.
