Ordering Transcripts on Parchment

Using Parchment, How To Order Your Transcript To Go To Colleges (and other places):


1. Log on to your account at www.parchment.com.

Please remember that the CYHS Counseling Office does NOT have access to your password, although we may be able to tell you the email address you used when you set up your account. If you have trouble logging in, you will need to use Parchment Customer Support for help.

2. Make sure you're on your Dashboard.


.

We encourage you to ignore the College List, College Matches, and your Profile section. We do not find these features of Parchment to be statistically useful to our students.

3. Scroll down just a little to see your Central York High School transcript!

.

From here, you can do two things:

  1. Click on the icon of your transcript. This will show your transcript, but it may not be updated with your most recent FINAL grades or test scores. If it seems out of date to you, just click on "Update" below the transcript. The guidance secretary will see that it is updated within 1 business day.    .
  2. Click on "Order" to send your transcript to colleges, individuals, or other organizations.  

4. Once you've clicked "Order", a new screen will appear, asking where you want to send your transcript.

.
Type in the name of the college or organization, then press "Search".  Options will then appear below & you will need to "Select" the college or organization that you wish to receive your transcript.

IF YOU ARE APPLYING TO COLLEGES THROUGH THE COMMON APPLICATION, DO NOT SEND YOUR TRANSCRIPTS DIRECTLY TO THESE COLLEGES. INSTEAD, SEND YOUR TRANSCRIPT TO THE COMMON APP & THE COLLEGES WILL VIEW IT THROUGH THEIR COMMON APP ACCOUNTS!

Just type in Common App as your destination.

.

 Once you click "Select", a new screen will appear. Type in your Common App ID. You will find this in your Common App account in the top right of your screen. It will say "CAID: ________". 

.

Once you've entered your CAID, it will ask you to confirm the details of your account. If all is correct, click "Save & Continue". 

The same process should happen if you're sending your transcript to the NCAA Eligibility Center. You should be doing this if you plan to play Division I or Division II sports in college!

5. Verify that the information is correct.

Whether you're sending to a college or other organization, your next two screens will just ask you to confirm that the information is correct. If you're placing the order near the end of a semester (in January or May), you may wish to change "Send Now" to "Hold for Grades". 

.

Check it over, then click "Save & Continue" until you get to the screen that says "Submit". You'll know you're done when the screen says "High Five!" and congratulates you for submitting your order for transcripts to be sent.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • When you order your transcript, it must be approved by the CYHS Counseling Office, which typically takes 1-2 business days. It will then be fully available to be downloaded by the college or organization that is receiving it.
  • You can always check the status of your order at the "ORDERS" section at the very top of your screen when logged in to Parchment.
  • When applying to Penn State University (any campus), there is NO NEED to order your transcript through Parchment! Penn State has their own transcript service & Central York has been using it for years! The CYHS Counseling Office secretary will submit your transcript to PSU within 1-2 business days of your submitted application. There is NOTHING that you need to do to make this happen! (We don't even really need the web form that they tell you to print & give to us, but we'll take it & put it in your file, if that makes you feel better! ; )
  • You must send your final transcript to the college where you will attend!!!   This is YOUR responsibility! In April & May, we will be reminding you to do this! You will:
    • Log on to Parchment
    • Order your transcript to go to the college where you plan to attend
    • Change "Send Now" to "Hold for Grades", so that we will send it after it has all of your final grades entered.
