• REQUESTING AN OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT:

    The Online Payment System will begin accepting orders for official transcripts starting THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD.

    Please have the following information readily available to complete your transcript order: 

    • Full Name of each college/university or post-secondary program
    • Mailing Address (including city and state) 
    • Application Deadline 

    (Students are encouraged to request and review an unofficial copy of their transcript from the counseling office PRIOR to submitting to colleges to ensure any outside credits or summer school courses have been transcribed. Please email Counseling Assistant Lisa Jandusay - lisa.jandusay@mercerislandschools.org or stop by the counseling office to request a copy in person.)

    To ensure that your official transcript arrives on-time, place your transcript order no later than 20 school days prior to the application deadline. 

    It is strongly advised that once you’ve finalized your college/university/post-secondary program list, your first step should be to order official transcripts. This is especially true for Common App colleges/universities since Naviance sends transcripts to Common App colleges in batches.   

    Remember, your application does not have to be complete and submitted to order an official transcript.
