    • In accordance with 34 CFR § 300.613 we will respond to any records requests without unnecessary delay.
    • Processing time once requests have been received by Student Records and Transcripts is up to 30 business days.
    • Please be advised that records may require additional time to research as these records are stored at an offsite location. Each case is unique and based on the age and quality of the student record; or other extenuating circumstances special attention and time are required to retrieve these documents. Your patience is requested as we work to retrieve these records for your special case.
