12 Step 2: Requesting a Transcript

Your counselor should have brag sheets & a resume from you prior to this step Allow 3 weeks to process. Administrative Assistants will move college from “Colleges I’m Thinking About” to “Colleges I’m Applying To”, NOT THE STUDENT. The counselor will submit the following: Transcript School Profile Secondary School Report Counselor letter of Recommendation Teacher Recommendation if complete


14 Step 3: Teacher Recommendations
Please make sure you personally ask the teacher prior to submitting the official request. Always allow at least 3 weeks for teachers to complete the letter For electronic submissions: Click on the College tab, then “Colleges I’m Applying To” Scroll down to “Teacher Recommendations” Click “add/cancel request” Add new request, click the drop-down list and choose the teacher from the list, click “submit request.” If the teacher would like to mail the letter please hand them addressed/stamped envelopes to the admissions office


16 Step 4: Test Scores Students order Standardized Test Score Reports online (they are not sent through guidance) Allow ample time (2-4 weeks) for admissions office to receive electronic score report For the SAT and SAT Subject Tests: For the ACT: Even if you choose to self-report test scores in your college application, you still must have the official scores sent through College Board or ACT.
