Transcript Request Deadline Dates

Please allow at least 3 weeks before the college application deadline for processing your transcript request.

If you need to send a transcript please stop by the Transcript Office, which is located in Student Services.

When it comes to requesting a transcript, please keep the following information in mind:

  1. The first three college transcripts for seniors are free.  No postage is required. A $ 5.00 fee and two (2) first class stamps will be required for each additional transcript. Fees must be paid at the time of the request.

  2. Official transcripts for underclassmen will cost $5 each.

  3. Transcripts and school counselor letters of recommendation must be requested at least 15 business days prior to a college or scholarship deadline.

  4. Requests made within 15 days of a college or scholarship deadline will be honored, however, there will be an additional $5 surcharge for each transcript that is requested within 5 business days of a college or scholarship deadline.   If you’re unable to submit your request at least 15 days before your deadline you can still submit your request but your counselor may not have enough time to write you a strong letter of recommendation.

  5. Requests to mail SAT and/or ACT scores should go to www.collegeboard.com (SAT’s) or www.actstudent.org (ACT’s).
