What is the difference between official and unofficial transcripts?
- Unofficial transcripts do not have the official school seal or signature, nor are they in a sealed envelope.
- Official transcripts have the official school seal and signature and are placed in a sealed envelope. While many scholarships require an official transcript, most do not.
Alumni (2023 and Prior):
- Processing requires two school days. Transcripts are not available for immediate pick-up on a walk-in basis.
- Unofficial transcripts are available in your PowerSchool account. Print/download an unofficial copy following these instructions.
- Official transcripts requests are made using this form.
- Transcripts will only be mailed to colleges, employers, and scholarships, not to your home address.
