FAQs

 

Q: What if a college or sports recruiting organization needs my transcript right now!

A: The default order setting on Parchment is to send your current transcript immediately. This means the receiver will receive your last transcript on record. It is especially important when submitting a college application, to send your current transcript immediately, and additionally take steps to pre-order your next transcript as well. 

Q: When should I request the next transcript to be sent?

A: Place a "HOLD FOR GRADES" order now - don't wait! If a college or sports recruiting organization (like NCAA/NCSA) is anxious to receive your NEXT transcript, place another but choose the option "HOLD FOR GRADES" before clicking the submit button. This option provides your NEXT transcript the moment the Principal deems them accurate and approved for distribution.

Q: What are my options when a college recruiter/coach, or insurance agent asks me to provide them a "copy" of my transcript as part of our meeting.

A: Typically this means they are fine with an *unofficial copy* of your transcript, allowing them to include in their decision-making, your grades, GPA, attendance, and test scores. You have full control over an unofficial copy. When ordering choose the option, "Send to Myself". This option provides you a PDF of your current transcript. You can then Print or Email the PDF to the person asking for your transcript.

Q: I am currently enrolled and Parchment has been free to me, but suddenly I am being charged a fee?

A: If this happens, back out of the order and contact Mrs. Pilon who will guide you through a solution. Usually the answer is one the 3 noted below. But if you recently graduated, electronic sending is only free until July 31 following graduation.

  • Your year of graduation may be incorrectly reported in your Parchment account. Log into Parchment, check your Account information, making sure your exit year, "Class of____" is correct. 

  • Check to see if you accidentally requested a paper copy from Parchment by mail. If you need an official paper transcript submit the following link to request support from Mrs. Pilon, www.ReachHigherOHS.org/secretary

  • If you are an Early Middle College student currently in your 5th year, it is likely Parchment is seeing you as a graduate. This can be resolved by logging into Parchment and change your account exit year, "Class of _____" to reflect your *NEW* Grad/Leave Year as your literal 5th year, but do not do this step until you are actually in your 5th year of the program, (i.e., If your graduation cohort was Class of 2021, but your 5th year is Class of 2022, then for Parchment-purposes you will change your account to make you a member of the Class of 2020 and placed a new order, which should be free.)
