The student’s high school transcript reflects the individualized progress of a student’s academic work and is not designed to display all of the student’s activities.
- It is best for a transcript to be simple and to the point—more is not always better.
- We recommend no more than 7 or 8 credits per year because the transcript may look padded or crowded.
- Courses such as Life Skills and volunteer work should not be on the transcript of a college-bound student, as that may actually weaken the transcript.
- Non-academic information should be put in the portfolio (see below).
