    Our Tracking Sheets | For All College Applications

    Transcript Request Form

    If you are applying to college, all students must submit a transcript request form (formerly known as the green sheet) to Mrs. Rinck via email at rinckml@staffordschools.net. The transcript request form is now a fillable PDF form, and is located at the bottom of this page in the College/University Downloadable Files section. The form must be completed and submitted for each college students apply to, after the student has submitted their transcript requests in Naviance. 

    The transcript request form serves as the student’s formal written request for an official transcript, a school profile (which explains to the college about our school and the rigor of our courses and grading system), letter(s) of recommendation, and required secondary/counselor forms (to be completed by the student). It also allows us to facilitate on-time applications, by gathering the necessary paperwork, and tracking your college application.

    Transcript requests are FREE unless transcripts and/or several supporting documents are required by the college/university to be sent via USPS mail. Cost of mailed documents: $2.00.

    Transcript request forms are to be submitted to Mrs. Rinck via email at rinckml@staffordschools.net. The tracking sheets are due 10 full schools days prior to the official college application deadline.  There are no exceptions.


    Senior Brag Packet and Letters of Recommendation

    All seniors are strongly urged to complete a senior brag packet questionnaire, and email it to Mrs. Rinck at rinckml@staffordschools.net. The senior brag packet questionnaire (formerly known as the blue form in the counseling center) is now a fillable PDF form, located at the bottom of this page in the College/University Downloadable Files section. The form, completed thoughtfully, assists teachers and others writing letters of recommendation on your behalf, for college applications and scholarships.

    Only one questionnaire needs to be completed. It is the student's responsibility to request the questionnaire be sent to anyone the student has asked for a letter of recommendation from, though, students are encouraged to email the questionnaire themselves to those individuals, soon (preferably immediately) after making the request. Students should also be requesting their letters of recommendation through Naviance.

    Requests for letters of recommendation need to be submitted to the individual writing the letter two (2) weeks prior to the college application deadline.


    Scholarship Tracking Sheet

    For students who are applying for scholarships requiring a transcript, a Scholarship Tracking Form (formerly known as the yellow formmust be submitted to Mrs. Rinck via email at rinckml@staffordschools.net. The form is now a fillable PDF file, located at the bottom of this page in the College/University Downloadable Files section. Transcript requests are FREE unless transcripts and/or several supporting documents are required by the scholarship committee to be sent via USPS mail. Cost of mailed documents: $2.00.
