Hampshire transcripts are sent from central records. Before graduation, you can and should talk to the staff there about what will be included in your official transcript and in what order. If you are in doubt about what or how much to include, our suggestion is to include full evaluations for any class that may be relevant to your future graduate/professional school applications. When you ask for the transcript to be sent, allow at least a full week; in fact, the transcript is usually mailed quite quickly, but at busy times it can take up to five business days. You should also account for additional time in the mail.
The Hampshire transcript gives a lot of good information to graduate programs. Your evaluations usually speak volumes about the type of work you are capable of and the probability that you will do well in graduate school. Your Division III evaluation can be very impressive as it usually refers to a complex and advanced level of work you have completed (or are completing).
