• Transcript Instructions for AFHS Students

    Senior Transcripts are available to send for college applications upon completion of the fall senior rank, usually around the third week of September.  Please do not send transcripts prior to this date as the transcript will not be updated with the most current class rank and schedule information.  Student Services will announce the date that transcripts are ready to send.

    The way students send their transcripts depends on where they are applying:

    1. In-State Colleges and Universities:  Students must request their transcript through CFNC at www.cfnc.org.  Make sure your name and student ID are entered correctly in your profile.  You are able to check the status of transcript requests via your CFNC account after it has been requested.  Even if you are applying to colleges through Common App you MUST request your transcript be sent through CFNC. This is the only way colleges will receive final transcripts after you graduate. YouTube tutorial for ordering transcripts through CFNC.  
    2. Out-of-State Colleges and Universities:  Students must request their transcript through Scriborder at https://wcpss.scriborder.com/.  Students are able to request three free transcripts through Scriborder and then the cost is $5 per transcript.
    3. Scholarships:  Request these transcripts through ScribOrder and select Scholarship as the reason for the transcript, which will allow you to send this for free to your scholarship address.  Please direct any questions regarding ScribOrder transcripts to our registrar, Mrs. Howard, choward@wcpss.net 
    4. Career College Promise (CCP): Request your transcript for CCP.  Your transcript will be emailed to your student email account via a secure link through OneDrive.  Please allow up to 48 hours from the time of your request (not including weekends) to receive your transcript.  You must be logged in to your Wake ID account to access this form.  Please note, requests received near the deadline for submission of CCP materials will still be subject to the same processing time.  

    Other Transcript Needs:

    1. Records Requests for students who are withdrawing to another school:  Students who are moving and need records sent to their next school will need to have a records request sent by their next school to the Registrar, Cathy Howard, at AFHS by fax or mail.  (Fax number is 919-694-0526).
    2. NCAA:  Students will need to register for the NCAA at www.eligibilitycenter.org.  Once students have registered online at the Eligibility Center, they will need to contact the AFHS Registrar in Student Services, Mrs. Colhoun, to have their transcript added to their online account.

    Is your College/University requesting a Mid-Year Transcript?

    Some schools may request a mid-year transcript. If a school has requested a mid-year transcript from the student then those transcripts will be available after re-ranking occurs in mid-February. There are 3 scenarios to choose from when deciding how to send your mid-year transcript:

    1. IF you applied to schools via the Common App or Coalition App then no action from the student is necessary. The counselor will upload a copy of your mid-year transcript to any college/university you applied to through Common App or Coalition App.
    2. IF you applied to an in-state school and you did not use the Common App or Coalition App and the school is requesting a mid-year transcript, then you will use the Transcript Manager on CFNC.org  (www.cfnc.org) to request to have your mid-year transcript sent from CFNC to the school.
    3. IF you applied to an out-of-state school and you did not use the Common App or Coalition App and the school is requesting a mid-year transcript, then you will order your mid-year transcript via the Scriborder system (https://wcpss.scriborder.com/) to request a mid-year transcript.

    Sending Final Transcripts For Seniors: 

    Final Transcripts will be available the last week of June to send to colleges and universities.  

    • Students attending In-State Universities:  IF you requested a transcript through your CFNC account, THEN CFNC will automatically send an electronic copy of the final transcript to all colleges that a student sent an original transcript request through CFNC.  Students must make sure that the college they are attending has been requested via CFNC.
    • Students attending Out-of-State Universities: Students will submit a final transcript request through https://wcpss.scriborder.com/in late May/early June. These requests will be held until transcripts are finalized, then will be processed around the third week in June.
