Release of Records
According to Public Law 600.2165, once you reach age 18, your status changes from that of a minor to an adult. Consequently, after your 18th birthday, only you can request your student records.
We are no longer legally allowed to release these records to parents.
When you wish to have your transcripts sent to a college, a place of employment or for self viewing, you will need to make a request on Parchment, www.Parchment.com.
* A printed Request for Records form is available through the Student Center at 248-203-3751.
