Current Students - Official Electronic Transcripts
Current Marshfield High School students use Xello to send transcripts electronically. Most universities, technical colleges and employers require an official transcript. To request an electronic transcript, please log into your Xello account. Instructions are here: Xello Transcript Instructions. There is no cost to send a transcript through Xello. (Click on the icon below to go to the Xello icon to log in.) A transcript release form must accompany a request for a transcript. The form is located here: Transcript Release Form. The form must be signed by a parent or guardian if the person who requests the transcript is under 18.
*A transcript request is a two-step process. The first step is filling out the release and returning it to the counseling office. If emailing, please email to Mrs. Burkhart, Registrar. Her email is email@example.com. Then, the student must make the request in Xello. Once these two steps are completed, Mrs. Burkhart will release the transcript in Xello and the school will have immediate access to it.
Alumni - Official Electronic Transcripts
Marshfield High School alumni will use Parchment to send transcripts electronically. Most universities, technical colleges and employers require an official transcript. To request an electronic transcript, please create an account on Parchment. Cost to send a transcript through Parchment is $5.20. (Click on the icon below to go to the Parchment icon to register or log in.)
Official Transcripts - Paper
A paper transcript can be requested through the counseling office. The charge for an official paper transcript is $7. A transcript release form must accompany a request for a transcript. The form is located here: Transcript Release Form. The form must be signed by a parent or guardian if the person who requests the transcript is under 18.
An unofficial transcript does not have the school seal. There is no charge for an unofficial transcript. A transcript release form must accompany a request for a transcript if the request goes through the counseling office. The form is located here: Transcript Release Form. The form must be signed by a parent or guardian if the person who requests the transcript is under 18.
Current students who are eligible for free or reduced lunch should see their counselor before requesting a transcript through Parchment. Up to four free transcripts can be requested.
Students requesting an official transcript for a scholarship will not be charged a fee.
Alumni who graduated prior to 1995
Alumni who graduated prior to 1995 cannot use Parchment to request their transcript. All requests for both official and unofficial transcripts prior to 1995 will need to go through the registrar. A Transcript Release Form will also need to be completed and sent in with a $7 official transcript fee (make checks payable to Unified School District of Marshfield). The registrar will mail the official transcript to the location stated on the release. There is no charge for an unofficial transcript, but the release form must still be completed.
Scholarships are available to students at MHS at the local, regional, and national level. Money is generally awarded on the basis of academic achievement, other achievements within school or outside of school, or by special circumstances. Financial need is sometimes a consideration.
For questions regarding scholarships, please contact Krystal Salzmann, School Counselor and Scholarship Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or (715) 387-4332 x 3
*Many local scholarship applications are in Google Doc format. Students must be logged in with their school Google Account to access them.
We encourage all students and families to apply for financial aid through the FAFSA (Free Application for Student Aid). Many scholarships rely on the EFC (Expected Family Contribution) number to determine financial need, and will ask for that information on their applications. If you have any questions about FAFSA as it relates to scholarships, please contact Mrs. Salzmann.
