Academic Transcripts and Certificates

The Division of Postsecondary State Authorization (DPSA) maintains student transcripts and certificates from authorized postsecondary institutions that have closed.*

DPSA DOES NOT maintain or distribute transcripts from high schools, the GED test, or the HiSET test. To locate one of these, please contact the high school, local board of education, the Tennessee Department of Education, or the National Student Clearinghouse Electronic Transcript Exchange.

Please note that the transcript and certificate files received from closed institutions are sometimes incomplete. As such, failure to locate an academic record from a closed institution does not invalidate the student’s claim of attendance or the completion of a course or program of study. The Commission only administers and maintains the records as provided by the closed institution and will not amend any academic records. If the Commission does not have a requested record, a letter will be sent indicating that the Commission does not have a transcript or certificate on file.

Please read before completing a request:

• There is a ten dollar ($10.00) non-refundable processing fee for each request. Payment by credit card is         required when the request is    submitted. A small, non-refundable transaction fee will be applied to the       credit card payment.
REQUEST PROCESSING FEES ARE NOT REFUNDABLE EVEN IF THE TRANSCRIPT OR CERTIFICATE IS NOT         ON FILE. INSTEAD, A LETTER WILL BE  SENT TO THE LISTED RECIPIENT STATING THAT NO TRANSCRIPT           OR  CERTIFICATE IS ON FILE FOR THE STUDENT.
•  All inquiries regarding a request must be made within sixty (60) days from the date of the request. After       sixty (60) days, it is assumed that the  request was completed as submitted.
• Requests are processed within ten (10) business days from the receipt of this form.
