    • Where do I get a transcript or my GPA?

This option will be made available to you in the fall of your Senior year and counselors will be visiting with you about the specifics of the procedure. You must stop by the registrar’s office to pay the fee before your transcript will be uploaded to Naviance. You may also get a personal copy of your transcript in the Registrar’s office. Transcripts do not include SAT or ACT scores; these must be sent directly to the college from the testing organization.
