How Many Transcripts Do You Have To Request?
0Apr 10, '10 by PacoUSA, BSN, RNI noticed someone on another thread mentioning the number of transcripts they have to request when they apply to schools, so I was curious to know how many other people on here have to request. What is YOUR number and how much do you end up shelling out?
MY NUMBER: 6 ... ...
One from the college where I earned a BA ($10)
One from another college where I took courses during summers as an undergrad and are on my BA transcript anyway ($7)
One from the university where I earned my grad degree (FREE)
One from a college where I took a non-credit course and that's it, ever (don't know if I need to send this but FREE anyway)
One from a college I took certain prereqs, before moving to my present state ($3)
One from my current college where I will finish up prereqs ($5)
Total = $25 (not including postage to mail each of these requests out)
Frustration when this process repeats for each school (PRICELESS)
Needless to say, I try to whittle down my application choices as much as possible, because in all likelihood (with perhaps one exception) my nursing school will become transcript #7, oh joy!
0Apr 11, '10 by dandk1997RNI had to request them from four colleges times 5 colleges I was applying to. Super fun! Then I had to contact Syracuse U again because they never sent out any of them. Apparently their fax number for transcripts isn't working well, but heck, why bother posting that on the transcript instructions? I am SO glad to not have to deal with that too much more. I am starting my program in the fall, and only need to supply them with my transcripts for classes I am taking now or will take over the summer, which will be from two different state schools.
0Apr 12, '10 by LuckyinKYI had to request 4 counting my high school transcript required by the school I applied to. 5 if you count my official SAT scores too ($35). Even though I have a BS, they still needed my official high school transcript and SAT scores. My SAT scores are clearly on my undergraduate transcript, but not good enough. I think counting the SAT scores, I spent $70 or so on transcripts for one school and $35 or so for my second choice school.
