Need a Graduation Verification for a Closed Charter School?

The Arizona Department of Education has partnered with the DiplomaVerify service with the National Student Clearinghouse to begin providing diploma verifications for individuals, employers, background screening firms, and the military.  This service includes charter schools that have closed and should be your first stop in obtaining a graduation verification from a closed charter school.

Overview of the service:

  • Free to use
  • Fully automates the process of diploma verifications
  • Faster and secure way to get your graduation verification.  
  • Verifications can be performed any time of day

To request your diploma verification visit the Diploma Verify website to submit your request. 

If you are not able to get your graduation verification from Diploma Verify, and attended a closed charter school, please contact ASBCS using the student records request information below.


Student Records Request

When a charter school closes, the charter school notifies the Board of who will be maintaining the school’s student records and provides the Board with contact information. In some cases, the closed charter school’s student records are maintained by the Board, the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records – Archives and History Division (“State Archives”), or a designated contact from the charter holder.

The location of a closed charter school’s student records and the entity responsible for fulfilling the request can be found here:
