Transcript/Diploma Requests

Your free initial High School Equivalency Credential and Official Transcript will not be automatically sent to you. You must register with the Diploma Sender website to get this information. You can do this at any time – we recommend doing this right after you schedule your exam.

Any questions about this procedure can be directed to the High School Equivalency Office at the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
