Getting ready for college recruitment? Make sure you are ready with athletics AND academics. All college sports programs have academic requirements you must meet to play.

Honest Game uses high school transcript data to create your personalized Honest Game CARE®, which confirms your academic eligibility status and provide a clear outline of the test scores and grades that are needed to be eligible for college sports.

What Is a High School Transcript?

A high school transcript is a record of your academic accomplishments in high school. It lists every class you took, when you took them, and the grade you received in each class, sometimes it will include additional information such as standardized test scores and any honors you received. Every person enrolled in high school has a high school transcript, which is regularly updated as courses are completed.

There are two versions of your high school transcript: official and unofficial. The two versions will usually look very similar or identical in terms of content, but an official transcript will often have a seal or tamper-proof marks on it or will be inside a sealed envelope.

What Type of Transcript do you need for Honest Game?

Honest Game simply requires an unofficial transcript that can often be downloaded from your high school portal or requested electronically from your high school counselor. 

When you request a copy of your high school transcript, make sure you know whether you are requesting an official or unofficial version.

How to Get Your High School Transcript

How you obtain and send your high school transcript varies from school to school and also depends on whether or not you currently attend that school. Below are three situations; follow the guidelines of the one that best describes you to learn how to request and receive your high school transcript.

If You Are Currently Enrolled at the School:

If you currently attend the high school you’d like a transcript from, then you’re in luck because that makes it pretty simple to get your transcript. First, stop by your guidance counselor’s office and ask him or her how you can request a copy of your high school transcript. Your counselor will advise you on next steps which could include:

Picking up a copy in person from your school’s office – If this is the case, stop by the office and tell them you’d like a copy of your transcript. You may need to bring an ID or know your student identification number in order to get your transcript. In general, unofficial versions of your transcript can be printed off very quickly, sometimes right then.

Requesting a copy online – If your school has this, there will often be a page on their website where you can request a transcript. It may allow you to print off an unofficial copy for yourself and/or request for an official copy to be sent on your behalf.

If You Are No Longer Enrolled at the School:

This may be the case if you graduated or transferred high schools. Even if you no longer attend that school, you are still entitled to a copy of your transcript.

First, check the school’s website to see if they have information about obtaining your transcript. Transcript information is often found on alumni or student services pages, and it can provide information on how to request your transcript online or who to contact to get your transcript. You can also try calling the school’s main office number and telling them you are trying to get a copy of your high school transcript; they will direct you to the right person.

If the above doesn’t work, you can also try using a third party, such as Parchment and Need My Transcript. Both websites work with thousands of high schools to provide transcripts; however, there are fees and shipping costs involved with both sites, so contacting your former school first may save you money.
