How Do I Send My Transcript?
- UC and CSU do NOT need a transcript as part of your application.
- Colleges that take The Common Application will receive your transcript as part of the documents your counselor sends. Enter your counselor's name and email address where indicated in your Common Application account.
- Other Colleges occasionally require an official transcript as part of the application. If so, they usually provide a place to enter your counselor's email and they send us a link to upload it for you.
- If you aren't sure if you need an official transcript as part of on of your applications or you need help, email your counselor!
PLEASE NOTE: It is good to have an unofficial transcript as you fill out your applications so you aren't trying to enter your course history from memory. UNOFFICIAL transcripts are available in your Synergy account under "Documents."
