Seniors: How to Request your Final Transcript

Hello Seniors,

You can now start requesting your final transcript to be sent to the college/university you will attend in the Fall. This request can be done via Parchment. After you make your request, your official (and final) high school transcript will be processed after your final spring semester grades have been added into PowerSchool. This will happen the week of June 14th. You will receive an email confirmation once your request has been processed.

If you have any questions, please contact your counselor.

Thank you,

DVS Counseling Team
