Transcript Guidelines for current WHS students:

Students are entitled to receive 2 free transcripts per year.  After that, there is a $5 flat rate fee that will cover all other transcript requests beyond the 2 free transcripts.
 
During the application process, the University of California (UC) and the California State University (CSU) systems do NOT require transcripts with the student’s initial application.  Once a student is admitted to a UC or CSU and commits to attending that university, the student MUST send a final transcript in June.  Final transcript request guidelines will be emailed to seniors in late May/early June.
 
Transcript guidelines vary for private and out-of-state colleges/universities (including Common Application schools).  Please check the college website to verify if the college needs a transcript with the student’s initial application.
