INFORMATION ABOUT TRANSCRIPTS/DIPLOMAS

The District School Board of Niagara (DSBN) Records Centre processes requests for official copies of transcripts and diplomas received from former students who have previously attended a DSBN Secondary School or Adult Learning Centre (or schools within the former Lincoln County and Niagara South School Boards).

If you require records for students who are still enrolled in a District School Board of Niagara Elementary School, Secondary School, or Adult Education Centre, please contact the school directly.

Records that provide Proof of Secondary School Achievement/Graduation: 

Transcripts – Fee $20.00 for the first copy and $5.00 for each additional copy ordered at the same time. Transcripts are generally issued within five (5) to seven (7) business day after receipt of request and fee payment. Transcripts provide proof of graduation (i.e. lists the type of diploma received and the month and year of graduation), as well as a list of all courses taken and marks granted.

Diplomas – Fee $25.00 each, with a maximum request of three copies for each request. Diploma requests may take up to two weeks to process as the replacement diploma(s) must be ordered by the DSBN Records Department from the Ministry of Education. Diplomas provide proof of graduation only and do not contain any course or mark information.
