2015 GRADUATES/ALUMNI: Sending Final Transcripts
All students attending a four year college are REQUIRED to send a final transcript to their school. Because our semester ends in May and grades are submitted in June, we send the transcripts out around June 15th (this gives you time to insure your grades are accurate). 
To help introduce students to the process for requesting transcripts as alumni, students are required to create a Parchment Account and pay a small fee. The directions to do so are below:
Step 1: On the Riordan homepage, under "Alumni" in the Quicklinks click "Request Transcriptsand you will be directed to the Parchment website. 
For your convenience you can click here.
Step 2: Click "Send Transcriptsand Sign-up for an account
Step 3: Add Archbishop Riordan High School and enter your information
Step 4: Select the College to which you'd like to send your transcript 
Step 5: Pay the fee and Riordan will send the transcript when it is read
If you have any questions about this process please contact our Registrar Mrs. Birmingham (nbirmingham@riordanhs.org
