Why do I need a transcript?

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.
