A high school transcript is a record of a high school student’s academic accomplishments. Each student has a personal transcript which contains information about grades, classes taken and additional information like honours or standardized test scores received throughout the school career. A high school transcript is the most important part of a student's college application and also plays a big role in graduating or transferring to another high school. Some employers may even require submitting your transcript along with your other paperwork when applying for a job.
How to Get a High School Transcript
First of all, you need to figure out which version of your high school transcript is required - the official or the unofficial one. Most colleges and jobs will require you to submit the official version of your transcript. In some cases, the school may give you the official transcript in a sealed envelope, but most commonly official versions of the transcript are sent directly by your high school to your college or employer. It's pretty simple to order and receive your transcript. You can pick up a copy at the office or request your high school transcript online or via a third-party website. Remember to order in advance - it usually takes a couple of days to get it done.
