How does the Parchment system work?

My school uses the Parchment system for sending transcripts. Can someone walk me through the process and let me know what I need to do to send my transcripts to colleges?

Sure, I'd be happy to walk you through the process of sending transcripts to colleges using the Parchment system!

1. Create a Parchment account: To get started, you'll need to create a Parchment account at parchment.com. Your school may provide you with an access code or link to make setting up your account easier.

2. Link your Parchment account with your high school: After creating your account, you'll need to link it to your high school by searching for your school's name and selecting it. This will allow Parchment to access your official transcripts.

3. Request your transcripts: Once your account is connected to your high school, you'll be able to request your transcripts. To do this, click on "Order" or "Send Transcripts" and follow the prompts for entering college details. You can search for colleges by name and add them to your order.

4. Choose your delivery method: Parchment offers different options for sending transcripts, such as electronic delivery or paper delivery. Most colleges prefer electronic delivery, which is faster and more secure. Check your colleges' preferences to ensure you select the correct option.

5. Pay the associated fees: Some schools and colleges may charge a small fee for sending transcripts. These fees will be displayed during the ordering process, and you'll be prompted to pay them via credit or debit card.

6. Submit your request: After selecting your delivery method and paying any fees, you'll be able to review your order and click "Submit" to send your transcripts.

7. Track your order: Parchment provides a tracking feature that allows you to check the status of your transcript requests. You can view the progress of your order in your Parchment account and confirm that your transcripts have been delivered.

Remember to give yourself plenty of time ahead of college application deadlines to ensure your transcripts arrive on time. It's also a good idea to double-check that all the information on your transcripts, such as your courses, grades, and GPA, is accurate before sending them out.

I hope this helps you understand the Parchment system for sending transcripts to colleges. Good luck with your applications!
