Parent-generated transcripts are legal in South Carolina and you are free to use the transcript templates available on the Members’ page or in the Newsletter files to create your own, professional looking transcript. There are also many transcript templates available online. The key to having your transcript accepted by colleges is to create a professional appearing transcript that contains all required information including clear, descriptive course titles and appropriate GPA calculations.
Most of our templates are in Excel format. If you do not know how to use Excel to calculate GPA, you can still enter the information into the appropriate spaces but should submit the transcript for review. There is a fee for this review based on the amount of time it takes.
There are instructions that include Samples for both the Standard and Subject list templates on the Members’ page and in the Newsletter files.
For now, the transcripts are $10 per student year on the transcript for all grade levels, elementary through high school. This policy will be reviewed and the prices may go up based on the time and effort that must go into each transcript.
If you have a high school student in ninth through eleventh grades and would like to secure the $10 per year rate, you can use the pre-pay option to pay $40 now. You will be able to submit course and grade information each year for four years or until graduation, whichever is first, and receive an updated transcript. This will include the final official signed senior transcript as long as the student finishes in four years. If you have a Middle School student who is earning high school credit, you are not required to submit that information until the ninth-grade year, but we strongly suggest you begin to record the course information and grades as the student earns the credits.
If you are not a CHASC member, you may still use our transcript services at the current rates. Class rank will not be included and we cannot issue an official signed transcript from our association. Your association leader is the one who will assign class rank and sign the transcripts if necessary. The transcript template will be sent to you after payment of the fees. Please be sure to include your email address with your payment.
