Grades 9-11 Official Transcript Request

Students are sometimes asked to provide an official transcript to an academic institution, summer program, or community agency. All SLA students in grades 9-11 can request official transcripts by completing a Transcript Request form HERE. (When students are asked for unofficial grades, a report card or grade printout from SchoolNet will be sufficient.) Bring all completed requests to the College Office, room 312.


  • Allow TWO WEEKS to process the request.
  • If sending request via email, complete the Transcript Request form, scan, and email (preferably in .PDF) back to Mrs. Hirschfield at khirschfield@scienceleaderhsip.org.
  • Seniors who need official transcripts must add it to the Transcript Request Log in the College Office.

Check out THIS LIST for colleges that offer fly-in programs with financial assistance for eligible students.
