Transcript Request

Required

PLEASE NOTE: Transcripts ONLY reflect end-of-semester grades (1 and 2), not mid-semester grades. If you are a current student trying to access your mid-term grades, you must wait for them to be published on your mid-term report cards. 

Official transcripts are printed on official transcript paper, and bear the embossed seal or stamp of the school, the current date and either the Registrar or Academic Dean's signature. Official transcripts will only be mailed directly to the school or organization you are applying to.  

Please allow up to five business days for processing transcript requests.  Transcripts are normally mailed via the US Postal Service.  If you require your documents to be sent via courier service, please note that you are responsible for any shipping costs incurred (FedEx, UPS, or DHL).

IMPORTANT NOTE:  If a student or alumni is over the age of 18, The Taft School requires the student or alumni's signed consent to authorize us to release their unofficial transcript to a parent or guardian.  If no consent form is submitted, unofficial copies of transcripts will only be released directly to the student or alumni's email address that the school has on file. The Taft School reserves the right to request additional information or refuse transcript requests for submissions possibly deemed suspicious or fraudulent.
