How to Request a Transcript
Students may need a transcript for a variety of reasons. Colleges and universities require an official student transcript before one can be fully admitted to the school. Many scholarships students apply for require unofficial transcripts to be sent to their organizations. Moreover, many insurance companies give discounts for good grades, and they require a copy of your trancript in order for you to receive them!
Regardless of which reason you need a trancript, all students can order their transcript by setting up a Parchment account through www.parchment.com. Once you've set up your account, you can view an unofficial copy of your transcript at any time as well as send an official copy of your transcript to any college/orgnaization you desire. The entire process takes at most 15 minutes to complete, and it can be done using any computer. See the video and PDF file below for specific instructions.

Viewing Unoffical and Official Transcripts:
Once you initially set up your Parchment account, you'll be able to view your unofficial transcript by clicking on the picture above the "Order" button. Mr. Ghitis recommends that you save your unofficial transcript as a PDF on your computer. This way, you can print off your transcript for any organization that requests it, or you can send it to them via e-mail. If your organization requires you to send an official transcript, please see the "Guide for Ordering an Official Transcript" PDF below.
*All colleges/universities require that you send them an official transcript!!!*
Reviewing & Sending Transcripts to Colleges/Universities:
Most colleges require students to send two official transcripts: one while you're still in school and one AFTER you graduate. The first transcript is sent as part of the initial application process, and the second one contains your final posted grades for all 8 semesters. For the first transcript, you'll want to click the "Send Now" option when ordering your transcript (see Parchment Quick Start Guide below for complete details). For the second one, click the "Hold for Grades" option. Final offical transcripts for graduating seniors are available approximately 7-10 days after the graduation date.
