Where to upload my transcript on Common App?

Quick question: I have a copy of my transcript, but I'm not sure where I'm supposed to upload this on the Common App. Do I even need to upload it, or does my high school counselor take care of this part?

Hello there! It's actually your high school counselor's responsibility to handle the submission of your transcript. You don't need to upload it anywhere on the Common App. In the Education section of the Common App, you will be asked to fill out information about your high school and provide the contact details for your counselor.

Once you've done that and completed your part of the application, there's a section called 'Recommenders and FERPA' where you can invite your counselor to submit your transcript along with their School Report. After you've invited your counselor, it's crucial to follow up with them to ensure that they've received the request and to confirm that they'll upload your transcript for you.

It's very important to keep in good communication with them throughout your application process to ensure everything is submitted on time. Hope this helps to clarify the process for you!
