• Sending Transcripts to Colleges
    There are several ways to send transcripts, depending on:
       • What methods each particular college uses
       • What method or which software program you are using to apply
    Please remember that transcripts take some time to be uploaded/sent.   
    Be sure to give ample time to have your transcripts sent. (at least two weeks for a transcript or four weeks for a transcript with a recommendation) The various methods are outlined below. 
    Counselor sends transcript online
       There are several online admissions application programs that generate
       electronic requests for transcripts by sending counselors an email asking 
       them to upload a transcript to the college(s).  Some of those programs are:
       • Common Application
       • Send Edu
       • Coalition Application
       • Individual school's application
       You will be asked to enter your counselor's email on the application form. Please check to make
       sure that you have entered the correct email address. After adding your counselor's email, you should email
       your counselor letting him/her know that you have added him/her to an online portal. You should also make sure you have completed your
       RJR Scholarship Interest and Recommendation Form so your counselor can use that to complete any recommendation forms required.    


    Student requests an online transcript through CFNC
       CFNC is the only online application process that allows students to initiate the
       sending of online transcripts.  Therefore, students may send their own online 
       transcripts, without involving a counselor, ONLY to those schools they are
       applying to through CFNC (which includes ONLY schools that are in 
       North Carolina).  Students should go to the "Transcript Manager"
       button on: www.cfnc.org and follow the instructions. Students should check
       Transcript Manager after 48 hours to make sure the status says
       "Complete" (not Failed or Pending).
    Student is asked to upload an electronic transcript file directly into
    the admissions application
       Schools ask that a student upload an unofficial electronic transcript file into the
       admissions application.  The student can request this transcript by emailing his/her
       counselor to request a transcript. 
    Student Services mails a hard copy of the transcript
       Use if there is no other option
       If you are not using CFNC to apply, and have not been instructed that the
       counselor will be prompted to send an online transcript, then you are to
       ask for a hard copy of your transcript to be mailed to the college(s).  Please email
       Ms. Whitehead  mpwhitehead@wsfcs.k12.nc.us (and copy your counselor) that a transcript to be mailed.
       Please allow extra time for processing and sending during virtual learning.
