You may have applied to colleges that require a mid-year transcript as part of your application process. A mid-year transcript request must be submitted in order for one to be sent. Please log into My School Bucks, select mid-year transcript on the request and submit it. There is $1 fee per transcript. Once I receive the request, it will be sent by mid to end of January. You can find out if a college requires a mid-year transcript by going to their website.
Transcript requests that come in February or later a Mid Year transcript will automatically be sent.
IMPORTANT TRANSCRIPT DEADLINES
When a transcript request is received through My School Bucks there are several steps that need to be taken on my end before they can be sent to the colleges. Some of the steps include: making sure the colleges listed on the transcript match Naviance, Common App (CA) is matched, FERPA is waived, the letters of recommendations are completed, if it is a CA school the Advisor needs to complete their portion, etc. This all takes time. So please make sure you are paying attention to your college deadlines and giving us enough to complete everything.
- Please make sure you are putting the correct college deadlines. This date can be found in Naviance. Click on > Colleges I'm applying to > edit > App type. This will give you a list of dates. Please choose the one that applies to you.
- When you are completing your transcript request in My School Bucks please make sure to use this date.
There are several transcripts submitted on a daily basis and some are due sooner than others. I use these dates to prioritize my work load and use the dates you provide me.
Letters of recommendation:
- Check with the teachers before requesting a recommendation to see if they are able to complete it in the time you need it.
- Make sure you are clear with them on the date it needs to be completed.
- It is your responsibility to follow up with teachers.
- Please make sure to thank your recommender. This is not a requirement of their job and it takes a lot of work. Thank you cards are a nice memento!
Once you have applied:
- Please mark that you have applied in Naviance. Click on > Colleges I'm applying to > edit > Have you submitted your application?
Have you heard back from a College?
If I received your transcript request and I have all the information needed I will send your transcript and send you a confirmation email.
