School Closures and Transcript Requests
Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) Office of Academic Policy and Authorization provides a supporting role when authorized schools close, including
transcripts and other services.
For recent closure updates, see Updates and Consumer Alerts.
Our office provides student transcripts from closed private schools
to students, or to another postsecondary institution designated by the student. Copies of
transcripts are sent to the student. If the student wishes to have a copy sent
to a college, the student must indicate so in the appropriate section of the
release form. For student protection, the HECC does not email or fax
The HECC does not provide education verifications to employers and other third parties on individual student records from closed schools. We do provide student transcripts from closed schools to the student or to other postsecondary institutions designated by the student, but the student must contact the HECC directly at 503-947-5716.
Student Transcripts from Closed Private Career School and Private Colleges
Career schools that are or will be closing operations must
deliver all student transcripts to the Higher Education Coordinating
