    I've been accepted to a college - should I request a final transcript?

    Final transcripts are only sent once you have determined exactly what school you will be attending. Also, final transcripts will not be sent until the end of Senior year. As part of the graduation & college application process, you will complete a Senior Exit Survey on Naviance at the end of your Senior year, where you will indicate the school you would like your one final transcript sent.

    How do I request transcripts for the NCAA Clearing House?

    First, a student must create an account on the NCAA Eligibility Website. Next, the student must log-in to the NCAA Eligibility website, and request the transcript electronically through their site. The student should also meet with our Registrar, Ms. Laraia, to notify her of their NCAA transcript request in person.

    How do I request transcripts for a coach who is recruiting me?

    Coaches do not need copies of your Official Transcript - an unofficial copy would suffice. You can print off an unofficial copy of your transcript in Infinite Campus, located in the Reports section.

    How do I request transcripts for scholarship purposes?

    I applied to a self-reporting school and it shows that the Office Status is listed as Initial materials submitted - was something sent?

    Self-reporting schools (including UIUC, Iowa, Iowa State, Georgia, UC school system, etc.) do not need any paperwork from the high school, initially. To prevent an accidental transmissions of information/paperwork, we internally change the status to Initial Materials Submitted. No paperwork will be submitted to these schools. If you have questions about this, please see your counselor.
