Naviance:

All transcripts must be requested electronically through NAVIANCE – If you have forgotten your password or your email is not correct – see Mrs.Diehl.

DO NOT REQUEST A TRANSCRIPT UNTIL YOU HAVE SUBMITTED AND PAID FOR YOUR APPLICATION! The application is needed to create your file at each college/university. If you request a transcript before you have submitted your application the college/university will not have a file for you and the transcript will not be kept.






Important Dates:
