IMPORTANT NOTE - Transcripts are not processed during the following school closings: Thanksgiving, Winter or Spring breaks.
For the Class of 2011 or later, please follow the "Requesting a Transcript" instructions below. Please contact Ms. China Saria (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
If you do not have access to the email used for your Parchment account, please contact Parchment Support. Click on the "Contact Us" button to submit a support ticket.
When you are APPLYING to a college:
Students do NOT need to request transcripts for colleges using the Common Application, Coalition Application or SENDedu.
School counselors will automatically upload the transcript as part of the student record when they are invited by the student to submit the School Report. Again, before you “invite” your counselor, be sure that your transcript is correct on Infinite Campus.
When you have decided to ATTEND a college:
All students attending college need to request a final transcript via Parchment.
The college you will attend requires an official final transcript that shows your end of the year grades to prove you graduated. Even if you used Common App or Coalition, you need to request a final transcript to be sent to the college you will be attending.
Transcripts can be requested and placed on hold. Choose “Hold for Grades” in Parchment when processing your request and your transcript will be sent after grades are posted on June 14, 2019.
Official transcript requests should be made electronically through www.parchment.com for college and scholarship applications.

- Parchment now includes a section where you can enter a college and it will give you your ‘admission chances.’ Please note, we DO NOT encourage students to use this option as it is unreliable. Please continue to use the Compare Me tab as the information is monitored and verified by the academic institutions.
IMPORTANT: CHANGE YOUR PRIMARY EMAIL ADDRESS TO A PERSONAL EMAIL ADDRESS.

Current DHS students: Before you request any transcripts, you should verify that your transcript is correct in Infinite Campus. Ensure that all your courses are correct. Doublecheck that there aren't any Incompletes and check for any other errors. If you notice something is wrong, let your school counselor know.
