FAQs: IHS Registrar - Records

How do I request a transcript?

For current students needing transcripts sent to summer college and university programs, or for insurance verification purposes:
Transcripts can be requested from the IHS Registrar throughout the year. Stop by the main office to request in person, or contact the Registrar at or (607) 274-2144. The Registrar's office hours during the school year are 8:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Friday. Office hours during the summer are 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please allow a minimum of three to five business days to process your request.
For current seniors needing transcripts for scholarship purposes, or to be sent to colleges and universities in Naviance:
The IHS College & Careers office will be working with you and your school counselor to send your transcripts throughout the school year and will automatically send the final transcript after July 5 (although you may receive notices from your schools that they need the final transcript by July 1, admissions offices are fully aware that this is not possible for NYS public schools due to June Regents exams being administered so late in June). If you have any questions, contact the College & Careers office at (607) 274-2218. Office hours are 7:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday. School counselors do not have summer hours and have limited availability via phone and email during this time. 
For future transcript requests or proof of graduation needed after September 1 of each school year:
Download the Alumni Transcript Request Form. Contact the IHS Registrar at or (607) 274-2144 if you have any questions. Please allow a minimum of three to five business days to process your request.

How do I change my contact information?

How do I withdraw my child from Ithaca High School?

Please contact the IHS Registrar at or (607) 274-2144 if your child will be leaving the high school before graduation. 

To withdraw your child during the summer:
If you are withdrawing your child during the summer, you must complete the ICSD Withdrawal Notice and return it either to the IHS Registrar (room J-1) or the District Registrar (400 Lake Street). If your child still has their assigned Chromebook and charger, these will need to be returned along with the completed form. Your child's records CANNOT be released until their Chromebook and charger are returned.
To withdraw your child during the school year:
In addition to the ICSD Withdrawal Notice, an IHS Withdrawal/Transfer Release Form must be completed and signed by all of your student's teachers if your child is withdrawing during the school year. Teachers record the student's grades up to the last date of attendance and indicate whether the student has returned their textbooks, Chromebook and charger, calculators, library books, cameras, etc. Your child's records CANNOT be released until all of these items are returned. After the form is completed and signed by all teachers, please return the form to the IHS Registrar.

Teachers: if a student returns their textbooks and announces they're leaving Ithaca High School:
Immediately send the student to the IHS Registrar's office (room J-1, next to Student Services). See above for more information on our withdrawal protocol.
