Go to to request ALL Official Transcripts from El Modena High School.

You must create an account and request any official record be sent through this system, your counselor may not send official transcripts for you! If you applying to colleges that need a transcript when you apply, you need to request on ahead of the deadline. You may ask it to be sent to NCAA, Common Application, CSUMentor, as well as most other colleges and scholarships. You may also request official transcripts be sent to your home, but remember they are no longer OFFICIAL if opened. This is also how you request a Mid-Year and FINAL transcript after graduation.
If you were eligible for a SAT or ACT fee waiver, see your counselor or the registrar for a Parchment fee waiver, after you create an account but BEFORE you request any transcript.
If you have questions see your counselor or Mrs. Stuetzel, our registrar.
