Helpful Tips and FAQ
- Create and use an appropriate and professional personal email address for everything college-related. Do not register for events, or sign up for anything using your Rockwood (rsdmo.org) email address because you will not have access to it after graduation.
- Some colleges will use SendEDU or other methods for requesting transcripts and other documents. If you encounter a way to request a transcript or other documents directly from the college application, please note, you must still follow the MHS procedure to request that your transcript be sent. Documents will not be sent without an official Transcript Request Form submission.
