myPass

New this year: Diploma Exam result statements are now available through myPass

Starting with the April 2015 Diploma Exams, students will now need to retrieve their exam results through myPass—a self‑service website for high school students. Result statements for Diploma Exams are now be available exclusively online using myPass. Printed results statements will no longer be mailed.

In addition, the Statement of Courses and Marks has been replaced with the Detailed Academic Report (DAR), which is also available exclusively online using myPass.

myPass enables high school students to:

  • access their Results Statement;
  • view their demographic information;
  • view their DAR;
  • view their progress toward their diploma or certificate; and
  • order and pay for a transcript.

Specific information on how to sign up for myPass will be provided to all students who write diploma examinations. Schools will pass along information to their students. More general information on myPass will be provided to students and schools in the fall of 2015.
