How to Request Transcripts
Seniors and other students who are applying to a college or scholarship, must request their transcript through Overgrad. Directions on how to do do can be found here. Please understand the counselors must have a minimum of two weeks to complete your requests. Additional information on requesting transcripts and school documents can be found on our College Application Pit Stop.

HIGH SCHOOL COURSES TAKEN AT SYCAMORE JUNIOR HIGH:
Many Sycamore Junior High School students take high school level courses in the grades 7-8. Classes such as geometry accelerated and/or global language offerings qualify as Sycamore High School credits and will appear on the official high school transcript.
Math, art, and financial literacy courses taken at Sycamore High School for high school credit will be permanently recorded on the high school transcript and will not be eligible for removal at a later date. Since Global Language courses are required at Sycamore Junior High, the grades earned in these classes can be removed from the high school transcript.
After having a chance to settle into high school life, students and parents have an opportunity to delete credits earned at the junior high by filling out a JH Credit Adjustment Request. Once a credit has been deleted from the transcript, it will not be added back at a later date. Because the decision can impact GPA, class rank, college entrance requirements, and college admissions decisions, families were understandably quite anxious about making the correct decision. This form must be completed by the end of the first semester in the student’s junior year, which will allow time for consultation and information gathering with counselors in the Counseling Office.
Additionally, students should look carefully at the transcripts mailed home over the summer. If there are any questions regarding the transcript, including high school credits earned at Sycamore Junior High School, contact your Sycamore High School counselor immediately. Additional questions can be directed to the Counseling Department at 686-1770, ext. 3070.
