Transcripts for graduates beginning 2009
All transcripts for students beginning with graduates in the class of 2009 are now processed through Parchment. This includes transcripts for Colleges, Universities, Scholarships, Apprenticeships, etc. You will need to request transcripts through Parchment Secure Transcript at www.parchment.com. Each transcript requested is $6. Plan accordingly, it takes about 5 business days for a transcript to be processed and arrive at the designated institution or organization.
It is very important to enter all of your information correctly – miss spelling or incorrect dates can hold up the process of your transcript.
All College/University and Scholarship applications and any accompanying material must be turned in to your guidance counselor for processing at least 5 business days before the deadline date. There will be no exceptions to this 5 day rule.
Take care of any obligations! Outstanding obligations will hold up the processing of applications. Transcripts will be held along with college applications and scholarship applications until the obligation has been satisfied and/or paid in full. This is school policy – check your student agenda (pg. 27 & 48).
