NEW!!  CFNC e-transcripts – Cancel Request option

We’ve add a new feature in the Application Hub.  It allows currently enrolled PUBLIC high school students to cancel any Final PENDING e-transcript requests up to 2 days prior to the scheduled release date.  The release date is set to PowerSchool’s last day of school + 10 days.  Students will now see a Cancel Request column in the App Hub.  The button to cancel the request will appear and allow them to cancel the request at any time up to 2 days prior to the release date (see screenshot below).  When the system date is within 2 days of the transcript release date, the Cancel button will not appear.  Please share with your students…I’m sure they have no idea this is NOW an option!  It will help cut down dramatically on the transcript server’s load come June…..not to mention, relieve the load at colleges and universities from receiving unnecessary transcripts!

 

If students do not cancel the final pending request within 2 days prior to the scheduled release date (which is typically in June), then they will not be able to cancel it and the system will process it normally and deliver it to the requested college/university.

 

If students cancel it in error, they will need to make another e-transcript request so that the final e-transcript request will be created again.
