Order high school transcripts

Ordering your high school transcript on Parchment.com is fast, easy, and secure - and you can track the entire process on our website. We also have a user guide and a video that explains how to order high school transcripts:

A few things first

  • You must have an account with us. To set up an account, go to the Registration page. You may also want to read the Registration help topic to understand how the registration process works.
  • If you attended more than one high school and need to order more than one transcript, you can add more high schools in step 3.
  • We recommend using Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer when you order your transcript.

Order your high school transcript

  1. Log in to Parchment.com. Or, if you haven’t registered yet, click Sign up and follow the onscreen instructions to register.
  2. Click Transcripts.
  3. You now need to find the high school that has your transcript.
    • If you haven’t added any high schools yet, enter your high school’s information and click Search.
    • If your high school is already listed because you added it previously, click Deliver Latest Transcript and skip to step 9 below.
    • If you want to add another high school, click Add another school. Enter the high school’s information and click Search.
  4. Select your high school and click Save & Continue.
    • If your school does not appear, check your school’s website to see if it has a Parchment link on it. Otherwise, you will need to contact them directly to request your transcript.
    • If your school does appear but when you click on it, it says it's not live, please contact your school directly to request your transcript.
  5. You will be brought to the Enter your Enrollment Information page. Fill in the fields.
    • Fields with a * (asterisk) are mandatory.
    • Select whether you'd like to waive your FERPA rights.
    • If you opted in to College Discovery during the registration process, you can select whether you'd like your transcript to be shared with other colleges.
  6. Click Save & Continue.
  7. On the Sign the Transcript Request Form page:
    • Use your mouse or stylus to sign your name in the box.
    • Check the box to confirm that you are authorized to order the transcript, and then type your name.
    • For minors, a parent must sign, type their name and check the box that certifies that they are authorized to sign.
    • Check the last box if you want a copy of the transcript stored in your Parchment account. If you check this box, it means that you will receive an unofficial copy of your transcript into your Parchment account where it will be stored.
  8. Click Save & Continue.
  9. Select your destination:

Here's what happens next

Your school will receive your transcript request. They will need to approve the request and upload your transcript (if it's available electronically), and then we will deliver your transcript to your destination. Or your school will prepare it themselves if it's not available electronically. You can track your order online. 

More information

  • Some schools have a preferred delivery method saved into our system, so you may not be presented with a choice of delivery methods.
  • Do not edit an address unless you are positive that the changes you are making are correct. You cannot correct an incorrect address once an order has been fulfilled.
  • Use the Other Destinations tab to send transcripts to employers.
  • If you graduated before transcripts were electronically available at your school, you will be unable to select Electronic Delivery. You will be able to place requests for paper transcripts, so that your school can prepare them locally.
