TRANSCRIPT REQUESTS

Seniors need to pay close attention to colleges’ deadlines for applications. Students will submit two requests for transcripts. One request is an electronic one made in Naviance. The other request is a paper form submitted to the college counselor. Students planning to use the early decision or early action application option must submit a transcript request form for each college to which she is applying in Naviance and to the college counseling office by October 1 or at least two weeks prior to the college’s stated deadline. Transcript requests for the regular decision deadlines of January 1 and 15 are due by December 1.
