    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.
