Student Education Records Not Releasable Through an Open Records Request
UTSA student education records such as transcripts and immunization records cannot be released through a TPIA open records request. You must instead submit an education records request through the UTSA Registrar's Office.
Additionally, student records for admission such as high school transcripts, financial aid documents and immunization records cannot be submitted through this office. You may submit them directly through UTSA's One Stop Enrollment Center. (Fax No. 210-458-4638)
