Class of 2010 and beyond, you can now request transcripts online, and have them sent directly to colleges. All you'll have to do is click on the Secure Transcript. Secure Transcript™
is provided by Parchment, Inc, which takes care of sending out official transcripts, checked and approved by the school, to the colleges and scholarship funds you choose. You'll get an email when each transcript is sent, and for colleges that accept transcripts electronically, when they receive it as well.
So if you're applying to college this year, you'll find transcripts are one less thing you have to worry about.
