External LinkGoodCall Scholarship Search Engine
One of the largest databases of scholarships on the web. Doesn't require any personal information to search for scholarships and is free to use.

Getting ready to begin you college search, but aren't sure where to start? One of the best things to do is test drive a few college search engines to see which ones you like the best and which ones offer the greatest amount of information for the time you spend there. Here are a few you may want to check out:

External LinkCollegeboard
This is one of the most popular search engines with students. It gives you lots of criteria to choose from which is great, just be sure you don't get too picky or you won't have many colleges to choose from! It also has tons of info on the ACTs and you can register for the test here. It also allows you to compare financial aid packages.

External LinkCollegeData
Though not the best known of the search engines, it has some great features including one that helps predict your chances of getting in based on the school's admission info from previous years. All you have to do is complete your profile and every time you look up a school or do a search it will include your chances of admission. While the chances they show are no guarantee, and should not be taken as one, they can help you to make sure your applications are balanced between "dream schools" and "probable schools".

External LinkCollege Navigator
This site is maintained by the U.S. Department of Education. It doesn't have some of the fancier features of other sites, but it does have some very useful info like campus crime statistics, accreditation, and types of financial aid being offered to students. If you start your search on another site, be sure you check this one out before you finalize your list.

External LinkCollegeView
What I like best about this site are two special tools it has. It allows you to compare colleges side-by-side which is a great time saving feature. It also gives you the option to request information from a college with the click of a button. I would start with one of the other search engines then come here to use these tools.

External LinkPetersons
This site is easy to use and provides great information right at your fingertips. If you already have a school in mind, you can just type in their name and you will get not only their information, but a list of similar schools you might also like. This one gets my vote for most user friendly.

Obtaining Student Transcript

Transcript Authorization Form and Open Destinations Ordering

In order for Parchment to be FERPA compliant, students requesting transcripts to be sent to destinations outside the Parchment's database of academic destinations are required to print, sign and return a Transcript Authorization Form (TAF).

Historically, students have been required to print, sign and return a Transcript Authorization Form (TAF) for every order session in which transcripts requested will be sent to a destination not contained in Parchment's database. In response to feedback received from students and school administrators, we have modified this process.

Existing students will see a link to print, sign and return a one-time TAF the next time s/he logs in to the Parchment system. This link will be on the Select Destinations screen. They can complete this step at any time, but Parchment must have this form on file for each student in order to complete requests for transcripts to be sent to destinations outside Parchment's database. Students will still be able to place requests for transcripts to destinations in the Parchment database.

When a new student registers, s/he will be encouraged to print, sign and return this form as part of the registration process. Students will still be able to place requests for transcripts in our database even if they have not returned the TAF.

In both cases, once Parchment has the TAF on file for the student, requests for transcripts to be sent to destinations outside of our database will be fulfilled.
Each time students adds a new high school, they will be required to submit a new TAF for the added school. Parchment now requires one TAF for each student for each school they have associated with their account.

Come into the counseling office and sign a release form. We can make a copy at that time and it will take about 5 minutes. Hours are Monday thru Friday from 6:30 AM-3:00 PM during the school year.

Send a request thru the mail to Wayne Memorial High School 3001 Fourth St., Wayne, MI 48184 Attn: Records. The request should include complete name student attended under, date of birth, year of grad. or last year attended, where info should be mailed-address, please sign and date request.

The cost is $3.00 for regular paper or $5.00 for tamper proof paper. No personal checks are accepted, please send money order or cash.

Students can also request transcripts by signing up on Parchment.
