Ontario Student Transcript (OST)
The Ontario Student Transcript (OST) is an official document issued by all public or private schools in Ontario. The OST contains a list of the courses completed from grades 9 through 12 including those completed successfully or unsuccessfully. The OST is stored in the OSR and kept for many years after the student graduates. Please note, as per the policies outlined in the Ontario Student Transcript Manual 2010 document, the school that maintains the OSR is also responsible for updating and maintaining the OST. Consequently, if a student is enrolled full time or part time through another school, that school will house the OST. Ontario Virtual School is responsible to assist in this record keeping process by notifying the OST holding school of the course and final achievement of a student taking a course through OVS. When students complete a course through OVS, they will be mailed a final report card. In addition, a second copy will be forwarded to the school that secures the studentsí OSR so they can add it to the ongoing list of courses on the students overall transcript. Students that need a certified copy of their Ontario Student Transcript are directed to contact the guidance department of the school that holds their OSR. Students that require their final marks to be faxed to the Ontario University Application Centre are requested to send an email to info@ontariovirtualschool clearly authorizing this request including their first and last name, the course and final mark to be submitted, OEN and OUAC reference number.
*Full disclosure will apply 5 days after a student receives his/her mid semester report card.
