Sending Transcripts

Many colleges require you to send your official transcript to them when you apply for admission. An official transcript must be sent from the counseling center. After you submit your application to a college, fill out the transcript request form and return it to the counseling center. Transcript request forms are found in the counseling center or on the college planning website. You can list as many colleges as you have applied to on the same form. If you are 18, you do not need your parent's signature. Once the 1st form is turned in, you just have to come in and tell us any colleges you want to add and we will send the transcript.

Some colleges use an online system like SENDedu. They will have you grant us permission to upload your transcript to their system. You will have to give them your counselor's email address:
