Transcripts for current students

To be able to order a transcript from Naviance, you must have a Student Record Release Authorization Form on file in the counseling office before any transcripts can be sent. You can find this form in the Document Resources section of Naviance at the bottom of the home page under Counselor Forms. 

College applications typically use electronic copies of official transcripts, but if the school does not accept transcripts electronically, the transcript will be mailed. Please check with the institution to see which type you need.

Electronic transcripts are free. Transcripts that must be mailed cost $1 each and will need to be paid in the counseling office before requesting transcripts.

  2. Enter your Username, which is S and your Student ID Number (Ex: S123456).

  3. Enter your Password, which is your NPIN (which should be printed on your schedule).

Final transcripts for graduating students

All seniors attending college, trade schools, or the military must request a final official transcript at the end of the year through Naviance. These postsecondary institutions will require a final transcript in order to attend.

Students must have a Student Record Release Authorization Form on file in the counseling office to order a final transcript. Transcripts requested through Naviance will be processed and sent approximately 2 weeks after graduation. It is recommended to order your final transcript before graduation, as this timeframe will be different if requested after graduation.

GED transcripts

GED diplomas are granted by the State of Texas, not Garland ISD. Because of this, the methods of requesting transcripts outlined above do not apply to GED transcripts. Please request your GED by going through the state processes.

Student files expire

With an enrollment of over 50,000 students, it is not practical to maintain student files indefinitely. Because of this, student records and special education service records will expire five years after a student withdraws or graduates. This includes cumulative folders, paper transcripts, and other records. However, digital copies of transcripts will be retained for future use.
