CLASS OF 2020! * SENIORS * CLASS OF 2020! * SENIORS
EVERY SENIOR WHO PLANS TO ATTEND COLLEGE NEXT FALL WILL HAVE TO SEND A FINAL TRANSCRIPT (to the college they plan to attend).
Transcripts will be ready May 26th, and can be requested anytime after that date.
Colleges need to receive your final transcript as proof that you’ve actually graduated and to verify GPA and test scores. *While you may be able to attend Fall semester without a final transcript on file they’ll usually catch you when you try to register for your Spring semester classes if you have not sent a final transcript.
- The easiest way to have your transcript sent is by creating an account on NEM's Parchment page: https://www.parchment.com/u/registration/125768/account
- You can also always find the Parchment link in the upper right hand of corner of this page - there is a button on the top right hand that says "TRANSCRIPT" - and that will also take you to the NEM Parchment account.
It costs $3.95 to send your transcript, creating your Parchment account will allow you to pay online.
If you have further questions about your transcript you can email Ms. Blades, in Student Services, at email@example.com

Seniors, the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the 2020-2021 school year is AVAILABLE STARTING TODAY!
Completing the FAFSA will let you know what kind of aid and in what amount you're eligible to receive.
The colleges you've applied to will use the information from your FAFSA to create a Financial Aid package for you.
This "package" could include varying amounts of Grants, Work Study and Loans, and possibly need based scholarships that the school offers depending on your Estimated Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the information from your FAFSA. The closer your EFC is to 0, the more need based aid you may be eligible for.
Before you begin the FAFSA there are a few things that you'll want to have ready:
- FSA ID (You and at least one parent will need to have applied for an FSA ID. I suggest doing this as soon as you can if you have not already.
- Your Social Security Number
