Transcript Information

 

Due to the ongoing issues with Powerschool Transcripts not being ready, we continue to utilize the NCWise Transcripts with the supporting documentation. This remains to be a state-wide issue that we have no control over.

We will continue the process we have been using to request transcripts with one exception. Effective immediately we have to reinstate the $5 fee for each transcript requested. All Seniors will receive their first three requested transcripts free. Each transcript requested after the three free will cost $5. This can be paid by cash or check. You may still submit your request via the electronic submission or at the desk in Student Services, but you must come to Student Services and pay the $5 fee before we send those out. There is a 7-10 business day turnaround for transcripts to be sent.

If CURRENT AHS STUDENTS need transcript information, look here.
ALL OTHERS need to use the transcripts link to the right, which takes you to http://www.wcpss.net/transcripts/.
Do not use CFNC to send transcripts. There are still Powerschool glitches that are preventing us from using that feature. Continue to follow the procedure above to request transcripts.
