All requests for transcripts are processed using the Parchment Exchange platform. In order to request your transcript you must set up an account on Parchment.com. Please remember to choose Portola High School in Irvine, CA.
After you set up your account, please download and read the “Parchment Guide to Ordering Official Transcripts “(Click on Customer Support on the top right corner > Getting Started > Parchment Guide to Ordering Transcripts). This document outlines the step-by-step process for ordering transcripts. (Please note that PHS DOES NOT supply registration numbers for Parchment accounts.)
If you are applying to colleges using the Common Application, please pay particular attention to page 18 of the Guide and read the additional information at the bottom of this document. There are specific directions for requesting a transcript for your Common Application.
If you are submitting an individual application directly to a college, please choose the specific college as the destination for your transcript.
Please note the following:
- When you add your high school to your Parchment account, you will have the option to request a Free Copy of your transcript. This copy will then be stored in your account. This transcript will be available for you to view, print, download and share online; but it cannot be used as an official transcript.
- The transcript stored in your Parchment account will not update automatically when new grades are added to your transcript. Therefore, you will need to request to have the latest version of your transcript uploaded to your account. This could take up to two business days when PHS is in session. Do not submit multiple requests to have your transcript updated as this will add significantly to the time it takes to process your request.
Please contact our Registrar Mrs. Andalon in the Counseling Office if you have any questions!
