Transcript Requests : In order to send transcripts for college applications, scholarship programs, N.C.A.A. eligibility, or almost anything else you would need a transcript for, past and present students must register with Parchment to send their transcripts electronically. Transcripts include A.C.T. or S.A.T. scores taken at Lakeland High School as part of the Michigan Merit Exam during a student's junior year. A.C.T. or S.A.T. retake scores taken outside of Lakeland High School need to be requested when you take the A.C.T. or S.A.T. test again and sent to specific schools.
Past students : If you graduated after 1980, you must register with Parchment and can request your transcripts electronically. If you graduated before 1980, you must request a hard copy of your official transcript.
Parchment : Parchment is a secure way to send your official, high school transcript electronically. Transcripts are sent, usually within 48 hours, and are received instantly by the college. Parchment also confirms the receipt of the transcript. No more wondering if all of your materials sent through the mail have been received and processed! Transcripts are free to send to all public universities in the state of Michigan and to many other colleges throughout the country. Sending transcripts to certain colleges, scholarship programs, or specialized locations may result in a processing fee through Parchment. This is a fast, easy, and convenient way to ensure that your transcripts are received in a timely manner along with your online college applications. Once you are registered with Parchment, you can request transcripts anytime in the future, even after you graduate. Follow these simple steps to get your transcripts sent:
