MID-YEAR TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS
Some colleges and universities require a mid-year (7th semester) transcript as part of the application process. If a school you have applied to falls into this category, and you have already requested your original transcript, then please use the Mid-Year Transcript Request Form to ask us to send the updated transcript after the end of the first semester.
Once you have scheduled an appointment with your College and Career Counselor, use this checklist to prepare and write down any questions you have ahead of time: Senior Meeting Checklist
If you no longer need your appointment, email your College and Career Counselor and/or College Center Administrative Assistant, Mrs. Coyle immediately.
Mrs. Torgoley (A-K) email@example.com
Ms. Ake (L-Z) firstname.lastname@example.org

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
