    I am currently a college student on the quarter system. But my college ends June 13, 2014. But my grades will not be available to send til June 19, 2014. Even if I place a rush order on my final transcripts to have it arrive by June 23, 2014 (the monday the week of arrival to CO). I called the academy, and said that they needed my grades before I can travel. In addition, they said that they need them June 23, 2014 that monday. Does anyone know what I should do?

    I'm in the same situation as you. However, when I emailed my counselor, she told me that I should send my grades from last quarter, as well as a grade sheet from this quarter as soon as possible. I was then instructed to forward a final transcript as soon as one of those is available.

    The fact they told you they needed them by June 23 concerns me.

    I am trying to see if the Academy has an email for an electronic version to be sent out to them. Do you happen to know if they take transcripts electronically.

    Page 9 of the instructions to appointees handbook only provides an address for the transcripts to be forwarded to. I don't think they want them through email.

    The post office has overnight envelopes for ~$20. I had to use those for recommendation letters for straggling teachers.

    Did you give this information to your USAFA Counselor? I have read that in the past USAFA will take a transcript including the previous Fall semester with a copy of your grade report for the Spring semester. If the posting date is after (or too close to ) I-Day, USAFA accepted transcripts after I-Day. However, you always need to vet whatever advice is given on the forums. That is best done by contacting USAFA directly. Post the info you receive. Thanks.

    There have to be exceptions. My DS doesn't even graduate until June 23rd!

    That's exactly what I was thinking -- our school district isn't finished with spring semester until June 20. The absolute earliest anybody would ever have access to a transcript from that semester would be July 1, and that's if you send a certified letter asking for the records to be rushed.
