Sending Final Transcripts To Your College
Important SENIOR Information about SENDING FINAL TRANSCRIPTS TO YOUR COLLEGE
Seniors, it is the responsibility of ALL college-bound graduates to send a final transcript to the college they have chosen to attend after final grades from semester 2 have been posted. Final transcripts are not automatically sent by the school or PRHS counselors. It must be handled by the student/parent.
*For in-state colleges, including that in-state that use the Common Application (final transcripts are not available electronically to send via Common App), the student sends the FINAL transcript electronically through www.gafutures.org beginning June 3; click College Planning then High School Transcripts. A student must have their social security number on file at Peachtree Ridge in order to send through gafutures.org. If you do not you must request a paper copy of the transcript and mail it to your college (see the process below).
*For out-of-state colleges, the student must complete the 'Senior Final Transcript Request' form found in the Counseling Reception area, pay the $5 transcript processing fee (per transcript), and pick up the transcript from the PRHS Front Office on/after June 3, and mail to their college. This includes colleges that use the Common Application (final transcripts are not available electronically to send via Common App). Graduating seniors can order final transcripts April 19th-May 21st. Transcripts ordered after May 21st will result in a processing delay.
