Florida Automated System for Transferring Educational Records

FASTER and its interface to SPEEDE/ExPRESS

FASTER and SPEEDE/ExPRESS are sets of predefined data formats used by educational institutions to electronically exchange student records and transcripts. Institutions must subscribe to the FASTER and/or SPEEDE/ExPRESS systems in order to participate in this exchange.

    • We accept transcripts only when submitted by authorized institutions in the FASTER or SPEEDE/ExPRESS formats.
    • If you are a transcript service provider sending a secured PDF transcript, please address it to the receiving institution's registrar's office.
    • If sending for educator certification purposes, authorized service providers can address the secured transcripts to EdCertTranscripts@fldoe.org.
    • Transcripts cannot be accepted if sent as an unsecure attachment and/or from an individual’s email account.


  • The 2016-2017 FASTER annual cutover took place on August 1, 2016. Details of the changes to the system for the cutover can be found in the Change Summary document. All changes occurring after the cutover date can be found in the Update Summary.

  • It is always our intent to process student records as efficiently and securely as possible. If you have technical questions concerning the processing of FASTER records, please contact us at FSTR@fldoe.org. Please include the details of your question or request in your email.

  • High schools with questions regarding missing or rejected transcripts should first contact their district offices BEFORE contacting the Florida Department of Education. Districts receive an Edit Error Report each time they submit transcripts and can provide information regarding the processing of transcripts. In addition, transcripts which are processed by FASTER but fail Bright Futures edits are listed on the district's Incoming Aging Report.
