Final Transcript Requests:
Final transcripts will be requested via the Senior Survey. DO NOT request your final transcript the same way your requested other transcripts. Instructions will be posted as soon as they are available. It only takes a few minutes. If you have any problems accessing the survey, please see Ms. Mason in room 133. This is the only way to request your final transcripts. Email requests will not be accepted. Final transcripts will not be available until mid to late June.
Each graduate is given 2 free final transcripts. One to ACC if needed and one to the university or college you will be attending in the fall. If you took dual credit classes through ACC and plan to send those credits to your university, please understand that ACC will not release your college hours until they receive confirmation that you have graduated from high school. Therefore, you must first request an Anderson transcript to be sent to ACC and then you must request ACC to send a final transcript to your university.
Graduation Day Instructions: Information will be published when available.
The commencement exercises will take place at the Frank Erwin Center on the UT campus (1701 Red River St. Austin, TX 78701). Due to the construction around the area, we anticipate that there will be traffic congestion and limited parking spaces. In order to alleviate traffic and parking issues, we have developed a transportation plan that will allow our students and families to ride a shuttle bus to the Frank Erwin Center. The shuttle buses will start running three hours before each graduation ceremony at a location near your student's high school campus (click here for bus schedule). This service will be free to all AISD families. We strongly encourage you to use this service as it will eliminate parking issues, decrease traffic congestion, and allow you to be dropped off at the entrance of the Frank Erwin Center.
High school diplomas will not be given to students during the graduation ceremony. The official diploma pickup day will be Wednesday June 7th from 9am to 4pm in the library. After that date diplomas may be picked up in the library during the summer hours listed below. Diplomas will only be given to the graduate or the graduate’s parent/guardian. Graduates may not pick up their friend’s diplomas. All student obligations must be met before the diploma is released. Student obligations include but are not limited to the following
