Step 2: Send your transcript

You'll get an email when each transcript is sent, and for colleges that accept transcripts electronically, when they receive it as well.

If you need to send more score reports, please watch this video
to show you how to send scores. There is a fee for sending additional score reports. Please see your school counselor if you have circumstances that make this financially difficult.
