Transcript Requests: BEWARE OF DEADLINES! 48 HOURS NOTICE REQUIRED.
If you need to have a transcript sent to a college or a scholarship company, come to the counselor's office and fill out a transcript request form or send the information to firstname.lastname@example.org. The official name and address of the institution is required. Be sure that you allow 48 hours notice for the counselor to complete the request. Then, allow for the postal service to deliver in time. Colleges and scholarship companies set their own deadlines, which you must adhere to. It is the student's responsibility to be aware of these deadlines and get applications and transcript requests completed in a timely manner. DO NOT procrastinate when it comes to college/scholarship application deadlines. Transcripts requested in the summer may require more time.
