Stevenson High School sends transcripts electronically through Parchment. Families need to first register with Parchment and then may send transcripts to any college, the NCAA and other destinations. [exception: SHS counselors send transcripts for students filing the Common Application]
To register, go to www.parchment.com and follow directions to "Sign In".
-If the student is younger than 18, we suggest the parent set up the Parchment account; if the student is 18, s/he may set up a student account.
-Transcripts sent within a 12-state region are free; there is a $2.55 fee charged for any other transcripts.
-Parchment also offers a College Discovery, Newsletter and Discussion Board service. As student information could be provided to third parties such as colleges, test prep companies, etc , we advise you to opt out of these services.
