Class 2018 Final Transcript Info

All colleges require final official transcripts to confirm that students graduated. To ensure that we send your final transcript to the appropriate school you must complete two surveys BEFORE THE END OF THE SCHOOL YEAR: 1) in Naviance go to the ‘About Me’ tab, on the left under Surveys to Take, complete the Graduation Survey; 2) in the School District portal go to Infinite Campus, then Announcements – under Surveys complete the Senior Exit Survey.  NOTE: many colleges will not allow you to register for classes until the final transcript is complete. If you need an official transcript for a job or other reason when school is not in session you can request one through the School District portal: https://philasd.scriborder.com/application. Unofficial transcripts can be accessed through Infinite Campus.
