Transcript Requests and Middle School Credit

Transcripts

There are two types of transcripts – official and unofficial.

Official transcripts can be paper or electronic Paper copies are sealed in an envelope, stamped with the school seal and signed; they cannot be opened. If you open them, they will no longer be official. Paper copies can be ordered from the school counseling office.

Official transcripts for college applications can be requested and submitted to colleges using Naviance. Naviance is the software that SPS uses for College and Career Planning. If you are applying to a Common App School (see a list of schools at https://www.commonapp.org/), you will need to request transcripts, letters of recommendation, and supplemental documents.

Unofficial transcripts are unsealed and printed with no signature. Transcripts are only available to students who are currently attending or graduated within the last two years. Students who graduated previous to two years must request transcripts from the district office downtown and pay the transcript fee. Instructions for requesting transcripts from the district office are available by clicking on the following link: https://www.seattleschools.org/departments/student-records/ .
