Non-certified copies of archival public records in the Vermont State Archives are available at actual cost under Vermont's Public Records Acts. Charges for non-certified copies of archival records are calculated under the Uniform Schedule of Public Records Charges for State Agencies.
If you are a state records officer or liaison wishing to submit a record retrieval request for your agency or department's records stored in the State Records Center, please go to the State Records Center section of our website to submit your record retrieval request.
By statute, the State Archivist has responsibilities to provide certified copies of certain public records upon request. Any record in the State Archives can also be certified as a true copy of the original record. Unless otherwise specified by statute, the fee is $5.00 for each certified copy issued. Records most commonly requested for certification include vital records* and student transcripts.
