Are High Schools Official Transcripts required?
If you are applying for financial aid, you are required to submit an official transcript in a seal envelope AFTER YOU GRADUATE from High School. Please do not submit a High School transcript before you graduate from High School.
Are transcripts from other colleges required?
No. However, if a Los Angeles Pierce College (LAPC) course that you wish to take has a prerequisite and you completed the required prerequisite at a college outside the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD), you will need to present your official or unofficial transcript at the Counseling Center.

Admissions & Records Office will not accept transcripts mailed to the student or submitted in person by the student. Admission & Records does not clear prerequisites.
