Public Records Requests
Public records requests made to MassBay Community College are governed by Massachusetts Public Records Law, which provides that every person has a right to access publicly available information.
Guidelines for Requesting Public Records Information
To assist members of the public with making a request, we put together Guidelines for Requesting Public Records Information. Please read the document carefully before making a PublicRecords Request.
Although not required, requests for public records should be submitted in writing in order to ensure that the College accurately and completely responds to your request. A request for public records should include:
- Description of specific records being requested;
- Date parameters for the public records being requested;
- Name of person or organization requesting the public records; and
- The requesting person’s/organization’s contact information.
How To Get a MassBay Community College Transcript
Please contact the Registrar rather than the Records Access Officer listed below. Please print, fill out and present this form, either in person or by paper mail.
Note: A request for transcripts “On Demand” requires a $10.00 fee in cash, for each copy of official transcript. Up to 20 per year, official transcripts are mailed free, 21 or more requires $5.00 fee per copy. E-mailing or faxing-in requests for official transcripts is not a secure way of exchanging information and we strongly discourage you from doing so. Furthermore, transcripts cannot be e-mailed or faxed.
