Requesting Transcript Evaluation
The process of transcript evaluation is not automatic. When transcripts are received, they are only reviewed for English and Math in order to clear pre-requisites. In order to have a transcript officially evaluated please follow the steps below.
Important notes before beginning this process:
Transcript Evaluations are currently estimated to take up to 90 Business Days or 18 Weeks depending on the district workload. This means an evaluation request should be submitted within the first semester to ensure an accurate education plan, financial aid, and timely graduation.
Transcript Evaluations DO NOT take place on college campuses. All Evaluation Requests are sent to the District from all of our campuses, San Diego Miramar, Mesa, and City College. The earlier you begin the process, the higher your name will be in the queue.
It is highly recommended that students speak with counseling prior to submitting a request for evaluation as any changes that need to be made to an Education Pattern will require that the process begin again (email@example.com).
Transcript Evaluation Process
- Submit all transcripts from previous institutes and or AP Scores (See below for detailed AP information). From when they are sent to when they are posted as "received" in our system is about 30 days.
- Student will confirm that the district has posted the transcript as "received" by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. (Any submissions prior to confirmation will be canceled)
- Once confirmed, visit the Online Submission Page. After reading the directions on completing a form with Adobe, scroll to Counseling/Evaluation/Graduation Forms and answer the question regarding counseling

Requesting AP Evaluation
The process for requesting AP scores is similar to the above steps with some key differences due to remote processing.

Save a clip or screenshot of the order confirmation as well as an unofficial copy of your AP scores from the CollegeBoard website. You will need to submit these along with the Transcript Evaluation Form.
