Transcripts, School Records & Yearbooks

If you attended a school in the Orange Unified School District, then we have your records. Please keep in mind that students will be provided only unofficial copies. Official copies will be sent with an official seal to colleges, universities, companies and other officially recognized agencies. If you have a problem with official records, please contact the Office of Student & Community Services.

Graduates from 2005 forward, including current students, must order official transcripts at http://exchange.parchment.com/
