At some point in your future you may be required to provide a transcript of the grades you have received in high school. There are two types of transcripts.
- An Interim Transcript (sometimes also referred to as a mid-term or mid-year) is an unofficial transcript. When making application to a post secondary institute during your grade 12 year, the institute may require you to provide proof that you are enrolled in certain subjects and that you are achieving grades they require. The transcript you provide them is an Interim (unofficial) transcript. This transcript can be obtained from the guidance secretary by filling out a Request For Unofficial Transcript form.
- Official Transcript – this is the transcript that all institutions require to complete your application for admission. This is an official record of all the high school subjects you have completed along with the grades you received for them. Alberta Learning usually has these completed by the end of the second week of July once June exams have been accessed. To have this transcript sent to an institution, the student can apply online at www.alis.gov.ca or pick up a paper request from Student Services. Students normally will request this transcript near the end of May or beginning of June.
Please keep the following in mind concerning transcripts
- Many institutions do not require interim transcripts. They rely on students to self-report subjects and grades during the application process.
- Many Eastern Canadian institutions require an interim transcript. The transcript these institutions require is a second semester mid-term one, showing a student’s final semester one grades as well as mid-term grades from semester two. This transcript is not available until after March 15th. If you request one prior to this date, your second semester grades will not be included on it.
Alberta Student Number
What is the Alberta Student Number (ASN)?
The ASN is a single unique number assigned to each Alberta learner. It is used by the Kindergarten to Grade 12 and the post-secondary education systems in Alberta to evaluate programming and emerging trends in student choices. As a result, programs and services for students are improved and better aligned.
SWC student lanyards display the Alberta Student Number as an Alberta Education Number.
Why Do Students need an ASN?
Students need an ASN to:
- Obtain an Alberta High School Transcript
- Apply for post-secondary studies in Alberta (universities, colleges, technical institutes, apprenticeship programs)
- Apply for post-secondary student funding (loans, grants, scholarships, bursaries)
- Apply for post-secondary student funding from Alberta, if you are studying outside the province.
Should I Apply for an Alberta Student Number - NO! NO! NO!
Students registered at Sir Winston Churchill High School have an ASN assigned to them. DO NOT APPLY FOR A NEW NUMBER! Please come to the main office for further assistance.
How Do Students Know if They Have an ASN?
