Electronic Transcripts on CFNC.org The migration of historical data from NC WISE to PowerSchool is now complete, and students who graduated summer 2012 or before can now request e-transcripts on CFNC.org. Depending upon which school the student graduated and what year that school converted to NC WISE, students may be able to request e-transcripts on CFNC.org as far back as 2003 (41 schools converted to NCWISE in 2003) or it could only go as far back as 2009 (all schools converted to NC WISE by then). To request transcripts, current and former students should go to CFNC.org and click on Apply → To College → Transcript Manager.
