How to Request Official Transcripts
What’s the difference between Official and Unofficial Transcripts?
Official transcripts are usually asked for by organizations such as colleges after the completion of a degree (HS diploma, Associates, Bachelors, etc…). Unofficial transcripts are any grades completed before completion of that degree and can be printed by you! Note: Please make sure you know which transcripts the organization is requesting.
Official Transcripts can ONLY be requested through Xello or this form: Official Transcript Request
How to request transcripts through your Xello account click here:
1. Click on College Planning.
2. Click Create New Application.
3. Use the search tool to find the college(s) to which you are applying. Please note some colleges do not use Xello and you must do your own research on colleges to know how to apply.
4. Find your college in the list and click Select.
5. Choose Admission Type. Please note, you will need to do your own research to know which type of admission for which you are applying. Xello provides definitions for each in the right column.
