Most colleges, including Muskegon Community College, would prefer that students apply online at the college website beginning August 1. Students must request and send transcripts electronically via Parchment, which is located on the homepage of the high school. Please allow 5 school days for processing. All electronic requests for transcripts are free of charge through July 31 of the student’s graduation year. Students must request OFFICIAL ACT/SAT scores directly from ACT or SAT. (There is a fee assessed for this service.) This can be done at www.actstudent.org or https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/ if the student did not indicate at the time of registration for ACT/SAT to mail scores to prospective colleges.
