Transcripts

CURRENT GUNN STUDENTS (Class of 2019, 2020, 2021, 2022) AND ALUMNI

Class of 2019 ONLY

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

Your counselor will often be able to upload your transcript to your colleges for you, without you needing Parchment. However, if you are applying to any colleges that do NOT need any counselor forms, then the counselor will not be able to upload your transcript to those colleges. In that case, you must use Parchment to send your transcript to those colleges.

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

  • When you create a Parchment account, enter your Date of Birth carefully. Any incorrect entry will cause a delay in Parchment processing.
  • Your ‘Sending School’ is Gunn High School.
  • After you create a Parchment account, the Gunn Registrar will be notified, and will be prompted 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 to any colleges. 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 2020, 2021, 2022

  • 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 2020, 2021, 2022: Please do NOT attempt to use Parchment for transcript requests.  Any Parchment requests received by the Registrar will be denied!
