Transcripts and Letters of Recommendation

Transcripts and letters of recommendation are often needed before colleges and universities can consider a student’s application for admission.  Please follow the steps below if you need either of these documents.


Transcripts can be sent electronically through Parchment.

Step 1: Go to:

Step 2: Select “New Learner Account”

Step 3: Indicate “I do not have a registration code”

Step 4: Fill in the remaining fields.  For Highest Level of Education, seniors should select 12th grade.  Use your personal email address.

Step 5: Check your email and copy the verification code into the box.

Step 6: Determine whether you will waive your right to view a secondary school report (the recommendation of the counseling department is that you do waive this right.)

Step 7: Under “Transcripts,” click “Order.”

Step 8: Search for the school you would like to receive your transcript.

Step 9: Select the school and then select “Electronic Delivery.”  If necessary, enter the email address for the school’s admissions office.

Letters of Recommendation

Letters of recommendation must be requested at least two weeks prior to the applicable deadline.

Step 1: Complete the Senior Profile.  Make sure your responses are thorough and descriptive.

Step 2: Sign up to see your school counselor, or send an email with the names of schools or scholarships who will receive the letter, along with the deadlines.
