Requesting a Transcript

Requesting a transcript if you graduated from or previously attended Staples

If you are a Staples High School graduate or previously attended Staples and are interested in applying to other institution(s) as a transfer student, it is possible that the institution(s) will require an official copy of your high school transcript as part of your application. (Note: official transcripts are sent directly from Staples to the educational institution or organization, not through the individual student.)

Per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Public Law #93-380), we cannot release a transcript without the student’s consent and signature.

In order to have your transcript sent, email the Transcript Release Form including the name and address for each recipient/college along with a copy of your driver's license or passport to sfugitt@westportps.org or mail to the address below:

Staples High School
Guidance Department
Attn: Susan Fugitt
70 North Avenue
Westport, CT 06880

Allow at least two weeks for processing the transcript, plus mailing time. Naviance is not used for online submission of transcripts for graduates or previous attendees; hard copies of transcripts are mailed from the Guidance Office to the institution.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Guidance Office at 203-341-1225.

Unofficial Transcripts

To obtain an official transcript, current students should see Staples registrar, Mrs. Fugitt, in the guidance office between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Unofficial transcripts can be provided as a hard copy or emailed to the student as a PDF.

Official Transcripts

If you are applying for admission to another institution, such as private high schools or summer programs, it is possible that the institution(s) will require an official copy of your high school transcript as part of your application. Official transcripts are sent directly from Staples to the educational institution or organization, not through the individual student. Per the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (Public Law #93-380), we cannot release a transcript without the student’s consent and signature. In order to have your transcript sent, submit the Transcript Release Form and Teacher/School Counselor Summer Program Recommendation Request Form (if a school counselor recommendation is required) to Mrs. Fugitt between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

In order to determine eligibility, the NCAA requires an official transcript at the end of grade 11 and a final transcript after graduation from Staples. (Note: if you have attended more than one high school, you must request an official transcript separately from each high school.) In order to request a transcript to be sent to the NCAA, complete the NCAA Eligibility Center Transcript Release Form and return to Mrs. Fugitt. The final transcript will be sent automatically for any student who requested their transcript to be sent at the end of grade 11; no additional request is necessary upon graduation.

When making your request, allow at least two weeks for processing the transcript, plus mailing time.

If you have additional questions, please contact the Guidance Office at 203-341-1225.
