Parchment Transcript Requests​
​Parchment, an online program, requires students to create an account to request, send, and pay (if necessary) for high school transcripts. When creating the account, students must use their name exactly as it appears in the school's information system (E-school). Parchment will send transcripts to any college or university, or to any organization. Most transcripts are sent without charge; if the transcript cannot be sent electronically, students may incur a mailing fee. 
The account will remain active even after students graduate from high school.
