What are transcripts
Your transcripts are a record of all your grades from 9th through 12th grades. Colleges will request transcripts either when you apply and/or after you graduate from high school. Your transcripts also include test scores, such as SAT's or ACT's, along with information such as your rank and cumulative GPA. Sometimes, prospective employers will also ask for a copy of your transcripts.
How to request your transcripts
When you are applying to a college or university, you may be asked to supply transcripts to that school. You can do this by going to:
or email Mrs. Johnson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Put TRANSCRIPTS in the subject line and tell her which schools you would like them sent to.
If you are applying to Penn State and perhaps other schools, they ask that you 'self-report'. You can request an unofficial transcript be emailed to you for reference. Tell Mrs. Johnson it is for self-reporting.
