New System for Transcript Requests

Beginning October 1, 2015, graduates and former students will no longer request paper transcripts. Guilford County Schools has gone to an on-line request system. If you want to request a transcript, follow this link. Select To Get Started on left, click appropriate link and enter your information.

There is no cost for the service for current students; however graduates will now have to pay a $13.00 fee.
