With so many options available for our high school graduates, knowing how to make wise choices becomes critical for success in their post-secondary endeavours. Starting college or university is a big milestone in anyone's life. It is a giant step towards independence, and it is crucial to begin your post-secondary studies on the right footing. We have compiled resources for our students to help you with deciding your own individual pathway for success upon graduation.
Be sure to also check out our High School Resources if you are currently in school to ensure you are making the right moves now, so that you can take full advantage of your opportunities when you graduate.
The Ontario Student Transcript (OST) provides an official and complete record of the student’s performance in Grades 9 to 12. Both successful and unsuccessful attempts at completing Grade 11 and 12 courses are recorded on the OST. The OST will also include a record of the achievement of exceptional students who have alternative learning expectations in an individualized, non-credit program.
To request an Ontario Student Transcript (OST) for the purposes of employment or education, please contact your last school of attendance. Schools require at least 7 business days to process requests for transcripts, and a $5 fee is required, payable by cash or cheque only. Please note that schools are unable to reproduce diplomas.
Please note that students currently in high school need not request a transcript when making application to a college through OCAS, as this continues to be an automatic process of the high school.

If you are a former student applying to an Ontario College, you may request your transcript through the Ontario College Application Service (OCAS). This service enables your electronic transcript to reach its college destination quicker, and allows you to track online the status of both your application and transcript request. Simply go to their website, pay the college application and transcript fees, and OCAS will send your transcript to the Ontario colleges you have selected. Students of permanently closed schools of the Ottawa Catholic School Board may also use this service. Please note that students currently in high school need not request a transcript when making application to a college through OCAS, as this continues to be an automatic process of the high school.
