  1. Fill out one application for all Common Application schools at www.commonapp.org.
  2. Invite your counselor to complete the secondary school report (SSR) by sending Mrs. Sitto or Mrs. Tankersley an email. Your transcript request will not be processed until your counselor has accepted your online invitation from Common App.
  3. To request a transcript through Parchment, sign-up at www.parchment.com.
  4. Enter your Common App ID # along with your identifying information.
