A transcript is a copy of a student's permanent academic record. It is commonly required when applying to colleges, graduate schools and on occasion for jobs. If you attended a school in the New York City High School educational system you can get a copy of your transcript for a small fee. It will usually take between two to four weeks for them to send it to you once they receive the request.
