Graduating Class of 2021 - Important Info on Applying to College
Naviance will be the new system for requesting teacher recommendations and transcripts as you apply to colleges. However, the system won't be available for you to use for this reason until after August 1st. Please wait until school begins again in August to request transcripts and recommendations. You can always work on essays over the summer and keep them ready for when you apply.
Naviance is going to link to the Common App. If you are applying to any schools through Common App, after August 1st, you will need to match your Naviance account to your Common App account. Here are links to videos on how to match your account and how to request transcripts and recommendations. Even if the school you are applying to does not use Common App, you will request a transcript through Naviance. Naviance partners with Parchment to send the non-Common App requests electronically.
