College Preview & Admission Events
SENIORS- College Applications
If you are planning to apply to out-of-state or private colleges and universities, then you should also use this time to start a Common App account. Just like Go Apply Texas, The Common App allows you to complete one applictaion and submit it to a variety of schools (over 900!)

A transcript is a record of all the grades you've earned in High School. Colleges and universities will request this as part of the admission process. Final transcripts with your 11th grade information will be available in late July (after summer school ends, which is the official end of the school year).
Seniors can request transcripts to be sent to colleges here: https://myforms.pisd.edu/Forms/TRequest
If you have questions about transcripts, you can contact the Registrar at 469-752-9324.
