    Transcript Request Process

    FORMER STUDENT (GRADUATE) TRANSFER REQUEST

    Effective November 15, 1974, Federal and State Law prohibits the release of pupil records without parent or adult student written authorization. The school cannot release records without this written permission. (Ref. New Jersey Administrative Code #6"3-6.1 et seq.) states, "Organizations, agencies and persons from outside the school shall have access to pupil records if they have written consent of parent or adult pupil (Age 18)."

    In order for West Orange High School to send out a high school transcript (official/unofficial), a Graduated Student Transcript Request Form must be submitted online with supporting documentation. Please be advised - we do not provide copies of your high school diploma. 

    A copy of your Photo ID is required for all Transcript Requests. Requests will not be processed without proper identification. 

    Transcript requests are processed within 2 business days.  

    If you need to communicate with someone directly, contact the West Orange High School Counseling Department at (973) 669-5301, ext. 31600.
