High School Transcript
Transcript and Test ScoresYour high school transcript is part of your college application. Make an appointment with your high school guidance counselor to discuss the process for sending school materials to the colleges you are applying to. Your guidance counselor might use a reporting platform like Naviance or have internal deadlines for sending transcripts, teacher recommendations, or standardized test scores. Be sure to talk to your guidance counselor and know your high school's reporting process, in addition to your college's application deadlines.
If you choose to take the SAT or ACT, you can select the colleges you wish to send your test scores to when you register for your test(s). Many colleges have adopted a “test-optional” policy regarding the SAT and ACT®, either temporarily or permanently. If a college or university has a test-optional admissions policy, that means they allow all or some applicants to decide whether to submit SAT or ACT® scores as part of their application. Meaning, submitting your test scores is not a requirement. For more information regarding reporting test scores and fees associated with doing so, contact ACT or the College Board (SAT).
