SENIOR TRANSCRIPT UPDATES
Based on input and feedback the district received from parents last school year, our students currently have the ability to send their weighted and unweighted transcripts to colleges, universities and for scholarship opportunities. While this new combined transcript is official and accurate, some universities and colleges apply different treatments to weighted and unweighted grades/GPAs in the college application process. With the district’s aim to provide students options, schools will be required to have students select whether they want to have their weighted or unweighted transcripts sent.
Link to the request form: www.bit.ly/miltontranscriptrequest -- This form is required in addition to the transcript request in Naviance. If a transcript has already been submitted on your behalf, please complete the form so we can verify your desired transcript format was sent.
Unweighted Transcripts provides a student’s cumulative GPA and final course grades without the 7 honors points/weight earned in honors, dual enrollment, IB and AP courses. Weighted Transcripts provides student’s cumulative GPA and final grades that include the added 7 honors points/weight earned in honors, dual enrollment, IB and AP courses. Please complete the following to select which transcript you would like to send. (Insert your School's Weighted/ Unweighted Transcript Selection Form).
*University of Georgia Notice: Students and parents should ensure they understand UGAs process for recalculating GPAs- Admissions First Year Criteria (uga.edu). Currently UGA, accepts both weighted and unweighted transcripts.
*Common Application Notice: Students who use Common Application to apply to a school that requests unweighted transcripts should be reminded that their unweighted transcript will be sent for all of the schools listed on their Common Application.
*Naviance Notice: Please note that the weighted and unweighted transcript request form only informs counselors which transcript you want to be used. All students are required to continue using Naviance to officially request transcripts to be sent and should follow their schools college application process in order to meet all college deadlines.
