    When applying to a college or university that requires an "OFFICIAL" transcript, you must submit the Transcript Request Form*  

    Submit 1 form per school (if applying to 5 schools, submit the form 5 times)

    * In order for us to send official transcripts, you must sign the FERPA Release section in SCOIR. If you need another invitation to SCOIR or have questions or concerns about the process, please reach out to your College and Career Counselor via email. 


    You can access your "unofficial" transcript in Infinite Campus to use for self-reporting grades or to take on a campus visit.


    If you are using CommonApp: In order for us to upload a transcript to your CommonApp account, you must enter the email address of your College Counselor and invite us as your "COUNSELOR RECOMMENDER". CLICK HERE to read CommonApp Understanding the Recommendation Process


    For colleges and universities that REQUIRE a counselor letter of recommendation, you must also submit the:

    Counselor Information Sheet

    Parent Brag Sheet  (optional)

     Be sure to list the application deadline set by the college on the Transcript Request Form when a letter is REQUIRED as part of the application process.

    If a teacher is writing a letter of recommendation for your application, either provide them with a resume, a list of your accomplishments, and/or the Teacher Info Sheet


    When submitting applications, often you will be asked to report data about your school and graduating class. Use the School Profile to find GPA distributions, class size, and more: 2022-2023 School Profile
