Can someone explain how Parchment works for submitting transcripts?

I'm applying to colleges soon and my counselor mentioned using Parchment for sending out my transcripts. I'm kinda lost—how does this site work and is it trustworthy? How early should I get this set up before my college application deadlines?

Parchment is indeed a trustworthy platform that many high schools and colleges use for submitting and receiving transcripts electronically. The platform is designed to be secure and handle sensitive student information properly, so you can have peace of mind while using it. To get started, you'll need to create an account on Parchment.com and then add your high school to the account. Once you've done that, you can request your transcripts to be sent to the colleges you're applying to.

In terms of timing, it's a good idea to get your Parchment account set up and your transcripts sent well before your application deadlines. I would recommend starting at least a month before the deadline, if not earlier. This ensures your transcripts reach the colleges in time, giving you one less thing to worry about. Keep in mind that some schools might have additional requirements, so double-check with your school's counseling office for any specific instructions. Best of luck with your college applications!
