From the Counseling Office:
Juniors: in order for you to request transcripts to
colleges, universities and scholarships this fall, you will need to register
with Parchment, our electronic transcript service. Please check your
portage email account for an email from Mrs. King with a registration code
and instructions for setting up your Parchment account. Stop by the
Counseling office if you have any questions.
Seniors, if you are planning on attending a college or university
this fall, please listen up to the following important things regarding
requesting your transcripts through Parchment:
-Please request your final transcript in Parchment as soon as you
can. Colleges require a final transcript that shows your graduation
date, and sometimes schools will put your account on hold until they get
your transcript. So get this done now to avoid issues later.
-If you will be attending a
school that is on your Common Application, please request the transcript to
the Common App, and NOT the college directly.
-Once you graduate, Parchment
will consider you an 'alumni', and beginning August 1, all alumni are
charged a fee from now on for any transcript requests you make. So
request your final transcript sooner rather than later.
-One more important note---your portageps.org email
will become inactive after you graduate, so please update your Parchment
account with your personal email so that you won't have any login issues,
and if you need transcripts in the future.
If you have any transcript
questions, please see Mrs. King in Counseling.
PSAT information for 9th and 10th graders: Remember taking
the PSAT back in April? Well, your scores are now ready and you can
see them online by creating a College Board account.
Instructions on how to set up your account can be found here.
And one more thing for you 10th graders--counselors will be coming to your
10th grade English class soon and returning your PSAT 10 test booklet.
Yes, you get your test booklet back, and can review your score by seeing
which questions you got correct and which ones you missed. And if you
don't have a 10th grade English class here, please stop by the Counseling
Office to pick up your test book.
