Final Senior Transcripts

Seniors, your FINAL TRANSCRIPTS will be available on May 26, 2018. Make sure you request your transcript (on Parchment) to be sent the college of your choice. DON'T FORGET!!! You may have trouble getting credit for college classes if these are not sent! If you took a class through Dual Credit at JCTC or elsewhere, REQUEST A TRANSCRIPT FROM THE COLLEGE! That is how your college of choice will give you credit for these classes, NOT from your high school transcript.
