Alumni of the Defense Information School may submit a DINFOS 306 request form for an official or unofficial transcript. The Registrar’s Office will process the transcript request in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). The alumni's signature is required for all records requests. Records will not be released to a third party without prior written consent or the alumni’s signature, unless a  FERPA exception applies.  

Additional information about FERPA can be found here.

The Commission of the Council on Occupational Education accredits DINFOS. The American Council on Education (ACE) website provides course credit recommendations. Click here to search for course specific recommendations. 

The Registrar’s Office will process the transcript request, in compliance with the FERPA, within two weeks in the order received. Rush requests can not be accommodated. There are no fees for requesting a transcript.

Official transcripts are sent to universities, colleges, and/or service education offices as listed on the request form. An official copy of a DINFOS transcript is printed on watermarked security paper, includes a signature by the Registrar’s Office, and a school seal for authentication. 


Unofficial transcripts are released to the student. They cannot be released to a third party. Unofficial transcripts are stamped “Issued to Student” and do not include the DINFOS seal or Registrar's Office signature.


Third party vendors must submit the education verification or investigation requests with the student’s wet or digital signature. Request forms signed with font are not accepted. The signed release form sent from the third party must include permission from the student to disseminate information from an educational institution and state the specific information to be released. The registrar’s office will only disclose information that has been specifically requested, in compliance with FERPA regulation (34 CFR § 99.37).


Replacement certificates are for DINFOS alumni who graduated a course and misplaced their original certificate. To receive a replacement certificate, the student must complete the request form , sign it, and submit it to the Registrar’s Office. Replacement certificates may not have the original  Commandant’s or Registrar’s signature due to revalidating the student’s status at the time of request.
