SB 172 signed into law by Governor Brown on October 7, 2015, states that beginning with the graduation class of 2006, students are no longer required to meet the California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE) requirements to earn a high school diploma. A person who previously failed to receive a high school diploma or was denied graduation solely for failing to meet the CAHSEE requirement may complete the following on-line application to determine the student’s eligibility to receive a high school diploma. After your application is reviewed, you will be contacted with next steps. If your request is approved, ONE copy of your high school diploma will be sent to you free of charge. Please allow 4-6 weeks to receive your diploma. Additional copies may be requested through our regular online ordering process for the regular fee. LAUSD cannot issue diplomas until the law goes into effect in January 2016.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
If you graduated or left the LAUSD system prior to 1990, your records may have been transferred to the Student Records Center and you must obtain your Student Record Number or Index Number in order to complete your order. To obtain this information contact the Records/Counseling office of the last LAUSD high school you attended and ask for your Student Record Number or Index Number. Your request will not be processed if your Record or Index Number is missing.
Please note that the following high schools DO NOT require a student record number: Jefferson High School, Jordan High School, Locke High School, Taft High School and Van Nuys High School.
Please note that most LAUSD schools close in early June and will not be available to provide your Student Record of Index Number until the beginning of the next school year.
