Transcripts include final grades through junior year. If a school requests 1st quarter or mid-term senior year grades, students must submit a separate request (no additional fee.) Mid-year grades will not be sent automatically.
If the Transcript Request Form indicates that the student completed an online application, the Guidance Office will automatically submit the online Secondary School Report and submit it along with your counselor's letter.
Students will receive an unofficial copy of their transcripts at the Senior/Parent Group Guidance Meetings or during the individual studetnt/parent meeting with the student's Guidance Counselor. An unofficial transcript is one that is in the student's possession, and not sent to a school directly from the Guidance Office. Students are encouraged to make copies of the unofficial transcript to have for college interviews, requests from college coaches etc.
Contact Mrs. Hemschoot, the Guidance Office Registrar, with any questions regarding transcripts.
