Final Transcripts

All colleges and universities require a final transcript to be submitted after 2nd semester grades are submitted and finalized. Students are responsible for sending their final transcript to the college or university they will be attending through their established Parchment Account. Students should go to parchment.com to request a final transcript. This electronic service allows you to order transcripts online at any time and track the status of requested transcripts.

Here are the Steps for Sending Final Transcripts:

Students need to send final transcripts through Parchment.com

1) Log in to your Parchment.com Account (you can retrieve user name or password, if you have forgotten these)

2) Click on Order

3) Type in the name of the School you will be attending

4) Switch where it says "send now" to "Hold for Grades"

5) Click continue and submit payment.

     - Students who haven't used their 4 free transcripts will not be charged.

     - Students who have already used their waivers will be charged $3.95 (need a credit/debit card to pay)

Transcripts will then be released by our registrar once final transcripts have been updated which usually takes place around June 15.
