  • College Transcript Requests
    • Students using Common Application or Send. Edu, please invite your school counselor to the online application source.  Through this invite, the school counselor can upload your official transcript where multiple schools, of your choosing, can access your transcript.
    • For colleges and universities who are not on the Common Application and require an official transcript as part of the admissions process, it is the student’s responsibility to request through Naviance. If an official transcript is needed for other reasons, students can make the request with the Registrar. It will be signed by the Principal, and securely closed in an envelope ready for the student to mail.
  • For current students who want an official transcript, please go to the school Registrar’s Office and using the “transcript request clipboard” sign your name and number of transcripts needed. The official transcript will be ready for the student by the following day.   Unofficial transcripts are printed upon request.  If the Registrar is not available, then students or families may contact the counseling secretary.
  • If it has been more than two years since attending Nathan Hale HS, go to Seattle Public Schools, Student Records to request an official transcript.
