Transcripts through Parchment

To send your transcripts to colleges, universities, etc, you will need to set up an account in Parchment with a personal email address.  Do not utilize your school email address, as your school email address expires after you graduate.

  • Current seniors may send transcripts for free; after graduation, there will be a $3.25 fee for each transcript requested.  
  • For seniors applying to schools through the Common App, your transcripts will be uploaded directly into your Common App once you have entered counselor information.
