Chalk Talk: Transcripts
High school transcripts show college admissions officers the level of rigor that a student took on during their high school years. Colleges use transcripts to determine if a student is ready for college-level work, though they realize this isn’t a foolproof method. A transcript contains a list of the classes a student has taken and the grades s/he has received in those classes. If the student has done well in rigorous classes, this is a good indicator of college readiness. If the student has shied away from taking rigorous classes, this is a warning sign. The college determines whether the classes are rigorous by consulting the school profile, which is a document that explains exactly this, among other things. Of course, course selection has a lot to do with a student’s future goals and interests, and colleges realize this.
