ATTENTION SENIORS

 

Reminder to all Dual Enrollment students that you must turn in a copy of your final HACC grade(s) to either your counselor or Mrs. Olley by June 7, in order for the grade(s) and credit(s) to appear on your final report card and transcript.  This is extremely important, HACC will not give us this information, the only way we can get it is directly from the student.

 

IMPORTANT DUAL ENROLLMENT INFORMATION: Effective immediately, HACC has increased the cost of Dual Enrollment courses by $25 per credit hour, which means the cost of a three-credit course (which is everything except phys ed classes), will be raised from $300 to $375.  This will affect any student taking a Dual Enrollment course July 1, 2018 and later.

One of the required documents you will need when applying to college is an official high school transcript; which is a document that reflects a student’s academic record.  STHS has an online service where you can request an official high school transcript and send it to the college of your choice with just a few clicks.

Parchment sends your transcript securely, accurately and confidentially to any college or university.  The best part is you can request your transcript anytime from anywhere.  All you need is an internet connection and to visit Parchment.com.
