IMPORTANT DIRECTIONS FROM MS. WU FOR GETTING YOUR TRANSCRIPTS :
"Can you please direct your students to the parchment page so that they can request a transcript through there.

They will need to make an account and request transcripts via Parchment. If they would like to have a transcript that has their grades posted they will need to select “hold for grades” so that they get their full junior transcript, otherwise they will only have up to their first semester junior grades."
