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 transcript in order for you to receive them! There are two ways students can order transcripts: Xello and Parchment.
If you are a North junior or senior and want you send your transcript to colleges you are applying to, you will utilize Xello. Xello allows you to send your official North transcript to any university/college in the United States for FREE! If you are wanting to send your transcript to an outside organization, you will utilize Parchment. Instructions for how to order both transcripts can be seen in the videos below.
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. Mrs. Schmeidler 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 follow the instruction on the "How To Order Transcripts Through Parchment" video above.
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 using Xello, and the second one contains your final posted grades for all 8 semesters. You can use Xello to send both your current and final transcripts to the colleges you're attending. Final official transcripts for graduating seniors are available approximately 7-10 days after the graduation date.
