CURRENT STUDENTS

 

Insurance Discount:  If you need a copy of your transcript, or a form filled out, to receive a discount on car insurance, the first step in the process is for the student to make the request by filling out the form in the student store.  The fee for a transcript OR a form is $5.00 per copy/request and the student will need to bring the receipt and the form to my office.  You’ll need to allow two days for me to research our records and complete the form or generate a transcript.  Completed forms or transcripts will be available after 2:00 p.m., two days after the request is left with me.

 

Social Security Forms:  If you need MCHS to validate that your child is still enrolled at and will graduate from MCHS even if he/she has reached the age of 18, please bring the entire packet (pages 1-6) to the registrar’s office.  You will receive part of the packet back; we keep pages 4 and 5 and submit them to the S.S.A. after your child graduates.  You’ll need to allow two days for me to research our records and complete the forms.  Completed forms will be available in the Current Students box in my office after 2:00 p.m., two days after you leave it with me.

 

Entertainment Work Permits:  Please complete the top portion of the Entertainment Work Permit Application and leave it with me (or in my mailbox in the mailroom or the in box in my office).  You’ll need to allow two days for me to research our records and complete the form.  Completed applications will be available in the Current Students box in my office after 2:00 p.m., two days after you leave it with me.

 

Other Forms:  Please submit forms in person so that we can have a conversation about what specific information you need.  You’ll need to allow at least two business days for me to research your request.

 

Transcript Requests

 

Unofficial:  As of November, 2017, the fee for an unofficial transcript is $1, payable at the student store. You'll need to show your receipt in the registrar's office when you sign up to request a copy of your unofficial (unsigned) transcript on the clipboard.The unofficial transcript will be ready for pickup two days later after 2:00 pm. 

 

Official:  The first stop is the student store.  Complete the form and pay $5.00 per copy requested.  You will receive the receipt and the order form—bring BOTH to the registrar’s office.  Your official transcript(s) will be ready for pickup two school days later after 2:00 p.m.

 

NCAA:  Current students should stop by your assigned counselor’s office to request that your transcript be sent.  Typically, the athletics director uploads your transcript directly to the NCAA.  There is no charge for a transcript that is sent electronically to the NCAA.

 

Transfer Credit (such as from summer school):

 

You will need to provide an official transcript, in an envelope sealed by the issuing school, in order for the grades and credits to be added to your MCHS transcript.  In some cases, you must have your guidance counselor’s approval before taking classes at other schools, so please make sure to check prior to enrolling elsewhere, regardless of reason.

 

Current Seniors:

 

Congratulations and welcome to an exciting year!  This year will go much faster than you can imagine and there are some things you should keep in mind.  If you aren’t yet familiar with it, please review the Senior Calendar

 

We will provide each graduating senior with two official transcripts:

  1. One official copy is mailed directly to the final college choice you specified in Naviance.
  2. One official copy is sealed and included with your Diploma packet.

If you receive two copies of your transcript in your diploma packet, it may be because the school you chose has instructed us not to provide a hardcopy (common at community colleges) or you failed to specify a final college in Naviance before the deadline.

 

We keep one copy of the official transcript, as well as your proof of immunization, in our archives in perpetuity.  However, the diploma you receive after graduation is a one-time, decorative document only.  We do not have copies and are not able to order additional copies later.  Please keep it safe!
