Mid-Year Transcripts

Some schools may request a mid-year transcript, if that applies to you then follow one of the three the guidelines below:

  1. IF the student applied using Common App, Send.edu or Coalition App: Mid-Year Transcripts will be uploaded by your counselor in Mid-February (this will include senior year, semester one grades and re-ranked GPA.)
  2. IF the student did not apply through those avenues and did use CFNC to send their application and the school is requesting a mid-year transcript: Students would log onto their personal CFNC account and request the mid-year transcript.
  3. IF the student's out of state school is requesting a mid-year transcript and the student did NOT use Common App, Send.edu or Coalition App then they will request their mid year transcript through: wcpss.scriborder.com
