What exactly do you mean by "Academic Transcript and Fall Grades"? All applicants must submit an academic transcript which reflects their high school level courses. Fall 2019 Grades must be included with the transcript. For the purpose of this application, high school means Grades 9 - 12 in the USA. (If your school system is different from that of the USA, to maintain application consistency, you'll need to complete the information so that it aligns with the USA grade structure.)
Here's an example: If you are currently a junior (11th Grade), you're applying for our program as a "rising senior". As such, you'll be expected to provide an academic transcript that reflects your final grades from 9th and 10th Grades, as well as your Fall grades from the current academic year (11th grade).
Does it have to be an official transcript mailed by my school? No, we accept both unofficial and official transcripts and this section in your online account will allow you to upload multiple files.
What if my Fall Grades are not printed on my transcript? If your school will not include courses that are still in progress on your transcript, then you should upload the academic transcript along with a report card or progress report with your Fall grades.
I've attended more than one high school, what should I do? If you've attended multiple schools, you may upload transcripts from each so that any records of your scores from Grades 9 - 12 are included.
I have my academic transcript now but won't get my Fall Grades for a few more weeks. What should I do? Wait until you have all of your files organized together and ready before you attempt your upload. Once you complete an upload, the section will close and you won't be able to add files later. We'll have to help you open the section so that you can start over - which is ok, but will definitely delay the process! If you do need to make a change to a closed section, please email email@example.com.
How do I prove that I've taken Biology? If the course name listed on your academic transcript, report card or progress report includes the word Biology, we will likely not require further action. In some areas, the course title "Living Environment" takes the place of the word Biology on a transcript. If we have questions about the courses listed on your academic transcript, we will communicate with you directly.
