From the Counseling Office:

Seniors, if you are planning on attending a college or university this fall, please listen up to the following important information regarding requesting your transcripts through Parchment: Please request your final transcript in Parchment as soon as you can. Be sure and select the option to ‘Hold for Grades’. Colleges require a final transcript that shows your graduation date, and sometimes schools will put your account on hold until they get your transcript.  Once grades are finalized in mid-June, your final transcript will be sent to the requested college. So get this done now to avoid issues later.
