What is a transcript? 

A transcript is a written record of a students' classes, grades and credits.  It also includes a cumulative Grade Point Average(GPA) and Class rank.


Why do I need a transcript?  

Transcripts are used by high schools, colleges and scholarship committees to verify students' academic accomplishments.


Do I need an official or unofficial transcript?  

Most colleges require an official transcript for admission.  An official school transcript  is signed by a school official and has a school stamp verifying its authenticity.  Official transcripts are sent directly to the college from the high school or may be delivered by the students in a sealed envelope.   If the envelope is open, the transcript is no longer official. Students may request an unofficial transcript for their personal use.
