IF you do not do this step and you are admitted, your admission will likely be taken away if you decide to go there, when they require your final transcripts
2. Every school needs your SAT/ACT scores. If you sent them over a month ago and you receive a notice about sending your scores, call them immediately. It sometimes takes a while for a school to update its information.
3. Check your Transcript on Infinite Campus (Reports tab). If there is a mistake, email your counselor as soon as possible.  We will be sending out 7 semester transcripts starting Jan 22.
