Secondary School Record and Transcript
Your secondary school record is a critical component of your application. We’re curious to see what courses you chose to take within the context of what is available at your school, and we’re eager to see how you met the challenge.
All secondary school documents must be submitted by your counselor via the Common Application.
Official Secondary School Transcript
Most successful Penn applicants rank in the top 5 percent of their secondary school classes, but because high school programs and grading systems vary widely, we look beyond the class rank. We pay close attention to the types and levels of courses taken and the grades achieved, particularly as they relate to your educational interests and the availability of courses at your high school.
Secondary School Report and Counselor Letter
The Common Application requires that your counselor submit the Secondary School Report form and a letter of recommendation on your behalf. This information is important to the Admissions Selection Committee, as we seek to understand your achievements in the context of your school. This form is available through the Common Application .
International Supplement to the School Report
This supplement is required of applicants studying outside the United States and is available through the Common Application.
