Attention seniors, if the colleges to which you have applied either require or have specifically requested a mid-year report, you must submit a Mid-Year Transcript Request Form in the Counseling Office in order for your mid-year report to be sent.


Also, for clarification, all colleges require a final transcript and those are sent in June. Students will request final transcripts in May as part of their senior exit process. Current requests only apply to mid-year reports. (Tu,Th – 1.17) B. Ottinger
