High School Transcripts
Most North Carolina public high schools now have the capability to electronically send official high school transcripts to all 110 North Carolina colleges and
universities through CFNC.org. We encourage you to visit your school counselor to verify coursework and grades prior to requesting an electronic transcript.
To send an electronic transcript, you must:
- Make sure you have entered the following information in your profile and/or CFNC.org online admission application:
- First and Last name - This must match your legal name (use the name that appears on your report card, or check with your high school counselor).
NC Student Number (formerly NC WISE Student ID) - is your North Carolina public high school student identifier number and is only applicable to
North Carolina High School students. Providing the NC Student Number is voluntary and if provided, will give you the opportunity to request your high school
- Current high school (or high school at time of graduation)
- Date of birth
- E-mail address
Be currently enrolled at or graduated from in 2013, a participating public high school in North Carolina that has converted from NC WISE to PowerSchool/HomeBase.
If you are not sure about your school's current status or statusat the time you graduated, check with your school counselor.
As of November 13, 2013, electronic transcripts for some schools are now being processed from NC DPI's new PowerSchool system. Please refer to the
list of schools spreadsheet to see if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the new
PowerSchool system, or if your school is in a district that has chosen to send from the NC WISE system. The differences are described below.
PowerSchool: This means that currently enrolled students can now send electronic transcripts that contain their current student information from PowerSchool.
Please note there will be a temporary process change for electronic transcripts until later this academic year for students who graduated in summer 2013 or before. NC DPI is in the process of
migrating historical data from NC WISE to PowerSchool. If you graduated in summer 2013 or before, you will need to contact your high school directly to request a transcript.
NC WISE: This means that all currently enrolled students and former students can send electronic transcripts that contain their information from NC WISE. For currently enrolled seniors, please
note that transcripts from NC WISE do not include any courses in which you are currently enrolled (Fall 2013).
Over the next few weeks NC DPI is working to transition all remaining schools to the new PowerSchool system. Please check this message area and the list of schools spreadsheet (link above) for
the latest information.
If these conditions were met when you submitted your CFNC.org online application, you will then be presented with the option to request your high school transcript
be sent electronically to that institution.
If you submitted an online admission application through another website or university portal, we encourage you to request your high school transcript be sent
electronically to that institution from the CFNC Transcript Manager (located under the Apply tab → To College → Transcript Manager).
