Transcripts

A missing or incomplete transcript is the #1 reason for a rejected OSAC scholarship application. Read these instructions to ensure that you are submitting what OSAC needs in order to process your application.

Follow these instructions carefully!

  • Transcripts must list applicant's name, school's name, courses taken, grades, grade points, credit hours, GPA and cumulative GPA (if applicable).
  • OSAC does not require official transcripts. You can submit transcripts printed from your high school or college website, as long as they include the information listed above. Do not screen shot or copy and paste from the school website.
  • If you attended more than one college, submit a transcript for each college, including work on prior degrees.
  • OSAC will NOT accept the following documents as replacements for transcripts: Report Cards, Grade Reports, Degree Audits, Academic Evaluations, or Transfer Articulations.
  • You are strongly encouraged to have your transcripts scanned as a single file that can be uploaded to the application when prompted online, or transmitted by your high school Registrar's office directly to OSAC through the OSAC web portal.
    • Transcripts sent to OSAC via e-mail will NOT be accepted.
    • Transcripts emailed directly from institutions to students may be locked for security, print and scan the documents before uploading. Locked transcripts will NOT be accepted.
    • Screen shots and pictures can contain small print, be incomplete and overall poor quality.
  • READ INSTRUCTIONS BELOW TO ENSURE YOU SUBMIT THE CORRECT TRANSCRIPT.
  • If you are unsure about how to obtain a copy of your high school, college, or GED transcript, see how to obtain a copy of your transcripts.

Select the type of student you are to determine the type of transcript to submit:

A Graduating High School Student as of the application year

Submit all three required documents:

  1. A copy of the Confirmation of Enrollment letter on file at your local Educational Service District (ESD) (also called "Letter of Intent to home-school"). A DMV receipt or record will NOT suffice.
  2. A copy of the results of a tenth-grade standardized achievement test, required for all home-school students who have registered with their ESD.
  3. A transcript from your home-school teacher describing your coursework and letter grades assigned.

  1. If you received a General Education Development (GED) certificate and have never attended college, submit your Transcript of GED record.

A Graduate-Level College Student

  1. Submit transcripts of all college coursework taken in the prior 10 years through fall quarter/semester of the current academic year.
