Parents of Seniors: Common Application Midyear Reports

Seniors requiring midyear reports for their Common Application should request a transcript via Parchment to be sent to the Common Application. This will allow counselors to electronically submit midyear reports. After requesting a transcript, students should notify their counselor they have done so in order for their midyear report to be finalized. Check directly with your Common Application colleges to see if the midyear report is required as this can vary from school to school.
