Transcript Request for Scholarships or other Organizations

Transcripts cannot be submitted electronically from Naviance for any scholarships. Student will need to provide an addressed envelope with postage and all supporting documents to the College and Career Center, Room A104.

Students will need to register on-line with NCAA and not thru Naviance. Select "Official Transcript Needed" in your "Task List" in the NCAA registration process to continue to request a transcript.

A good rule of thumb is to check your on-line college status weekly. If you have any questions regarding your college status, you can always call the college admissions office directly.
