Several mistakes are being made when creating accounts that prevents Parchment from matching the transcript requests with what we send to Parchment. The following mistakes have been the most common mistakes and are taking time to be resolved:
- Using a nickname instead of the name on the transcript (same as on your birth certificate).
- Misspelled student names
- Using gradation leave date from college instead of high school
- Incorrect date of birth
- Parents completing the requests and using parent's information like birth year instead of the student's info.
These mistakes can be prevented by using the registration code that was given to current students via student email. All current 10th-12th graders have been emailed with this code.
