Transcripts
TRANSCRIPTS FOR CURRENT GUNN STUDENTS (Class of 2020, 2021, 2022, 2023) AND ALUMNI

Class of 2020 ONLY

You can now access your transcript through Parchment, an online transcript viewing/sending service that Gunn uses. You can use Parchment to view your Gunn transcript, or you can use it to send your Gunn transcript to colleges.

Note that your counselor will usually be able to upload your transcript to your colleges for you, using Naviance e-docs. In those cases, you would NOT need to use Parchment. However, there are colleges that do not accept Naviance e-docs, and there may also be colleges that only want paper transcripts. In those cases, you must use Parchment to send your transcript to those colleges. If you are unsure whether you need to use Parchment for a particular college, please ask your counselor.

Read the following instructions BEFORE you set up an account in Parchment so you know what to expect:

  1. When you create a Parchment account, enter your Date of Birth carefully. Any incorrect entry will cause a delay in Parchment processing.
  2. Your ‘Sending School’ is Gunn High School.
  3. If you want your most current unofficial (free) Gunn transcript stored in your Parchment account, be sure to check the box that says that you want a copy of your transcript stored in your account. Checking the box will cause Parchment to prompt the Gunn Registrar to upload an unofficial copy of your transcript to your Parchment account. This is a copy for you to view/print only. It will NEVER be sent anywhere. Any time you click on ‘Update’ on the bottom of the transcript image, Parchment will let the Registrar know to upload the newest unofficial transcript to your Parchment account.
  4. Once you decide you want to order a transcript to be sent out, you must generate a Parchment ‘order’ request. The Gunn Registrar will receive your request, via Parchment, and will upload your most current transcript to Parchment. Then Parchment will send the transcript out, as an ‘official transcript’, to whatever institution(s) you selected to receive it.
  5. The 1st two official transcripts ordered are free. After that, Parchment will charge you a fee for each additional official transcript ordered.

Now that you know what to expect, go to www.parchment.com and begin!!

More instructions needed? Go to www.parchment.com/studentkit, or see the Registrar.

Class of 2021, 2022, 2023

Unofficial transcript: see the Registrar or your counselor. They can hand you a paper copy.

Official transcript: An official transcript can NOT be handed to you. It must be mailed, by the Registrar, to the institution requesting it (summer program, etc.). You must provide the Registrar with an envelope (stamped and addressed to the institution). The return address must be Gunn’s address (not your home).

The 1st two official transcripts are free. After that, it is $10 per official transcript.

Please give the Registrar at least 48 hours to process your request.

Note to class of 2021, 2022, 2023: Please do NOT attempt to use Parchment for transcript requests.  Any Parchment requests received by the Registrar will be denied!
