Transcript Requests:  Please complete the Transcript Request Form to have your transcript sent to yourself or college/university or employer.

Request for Recommendation: Many times scholarships or colleges will request letters of recommendation. Here are a few tips to ensure you receive the best possible letter.

  1. Choose people that know you well. If you need more than one, be sure to ask people that can give a well-rounded picture of who you are. Do not only choose teachers, but include employers, youth pastors or pastors, and coaches.
  2. Ask your recommender with plenty of time (at least 1-2 weeks prior to deadline).
  3. Tell the person writing the letter what they are writing about. If the scholarship or college really values something like service, work ethic, and participation, make sure that you highlight that when you ask.
  4. It sometimes helps to give these people a list of things you have been involved in while in high school. Here is an example of a form you could use.
