Transcripts 

We have updated our system so that transcripts will now be sent electronically.  We will be using Parchment Exchange.  The Parchment solution enables the secure, rapid exchange of your transcript to nearly 9,000 schools and universities, six education agencies, NCAA Eligibility Center, and hundreds of thousands of individuals.  You will need to make an account using your legal name spelled the same as it appears on MIStar/Zangle.
