The McAllen ISD Instructional Materials and Student Records Department maintains all student academic achievement records/transcripts for former students that have graduated, transferred out of, or withdrawn from the McAllen I.S.D. five (5) years ago or more.

  • Recent Graduates (WITHIN the last 5 years): All former student transcripts are retained at their respective campus for five (5) years after graduation or withdrawal. Please contact the school you last attended.

All requests are processed in date order as received, once we receive the written request it may take approximately 2-10 business working days for records to be processed and released.
