Transcripts and Your College Applications
If you apply through Common Application and invite your counselor – Your transcript will be sent automatically to the institutions you are applying
If you request a transcript from your counselor through the Coalition Application – Your transcript will be sent automatically to the institutions you are applying
If you request a transcript from your counselor through SENDedu – Your transcript will be sent automatically to the institutions you are applying
All others – with the exception of those noted above, you, the student, should order transcripts through Student Services ($3 fee for each) unless there is an electronic means for your counselor to send a transcript to the institution electronically. In those cases, it is the student’s responsibility to get their counselor that information for their counselor to do so.
If a hardcopy is needed to be sent, that would require you, the student, to order a transcript through Student Services at a cost of $3 each.
Any questions, please see Teri Keeney in the College & Career Center.
The internet offers a variety of free scholarship search sites (see below). Be wary of any entity that guarantees you will be selected for a scholarship. Remember: If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is! If you think you are a victim of a scholarship scam or financial aid fraud, please report it immediately to the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Inspector General at 1-800-MIS-USED or email email@example.com.
