KANSAS GED DIPLOMAS AND TRANSCRIPTS NOW AVAILABLE ONLINE
New Online Service Makes GED Records Easy to Access…Anytime, Anywhere


(TOPEKA) – Today the Kansas Board of Regents announced official Kansas GED records can be accessed, viewed and purchased through a new service, DiplomaSender. DiplomaSender allows GED recipients to access and order documents online at www.diplomasender.com, or by phone, toll free, at 1-855-313-5799.

“We are excited to offer improved access to GED records,” said Andy Tompkins, President and CEO of the Kansas Board of Regents. “The previous ordering process took days due to mail time. Now it only takes minutes. Being able to make records available, almost instantly, is a great benefit to those who have earned their GED and need to provide this information to employers or educational institutions. The transition to DiplomaSender represents an upgrade in technology, which enables additional ordering, payment, and delivery options for our customers.”

Getting a copy of a GED transcript or diploma is as easy as:

  1. Contact DiplomaSender online at www.diplomasender.com or call 1-855-313-5799,
  2. Order using a credit or debit card, cashier’s check, or money order as payment,
  3. Receive documents by email or mail.

“The Kansas transition to DiplomaSender has been seamless and is a reflection of the Kansas Board of Regent’s commitment to continuously improve service offerings for customers,” said Paul Hughey, President of DiplomaSender. “We are honored the Kansas Board of Regents has put their trust in DiplomaSender to uphold the customer service experience and expand the accessibility of Kansas GED documents.”

As of March 1, 2013, the Kansas Board of Regents no longer processes GED requests. All Kansas GED requested must be processed through Diploma Sender.
