Calendar Dissonance

The college application calendar is not what it used to be. But not everyone knows that. Some high schools don't open transcript
request services at until October 1 during the senior year. While that works for November 1 early admission deadlines and later regular admission deadlines, it is a problem for students interested in colleges with early admission deadlines in October.

Students who attend a school that has late transcript availability, should contact the recruiter for their area from colleges where they plan to apply as an early admission or early decision applicant. The recruiter can suggest strategies to help meet  them what to do. Some are advising students to print an unofficial transcript out of the student data system and send that with an explanation and estimate of when their official transcripts will be sent to the college.

This is a great example of the fact that getting into college is the student and parent responsibility. Most schools do not see it as theirs. Schools do not always give accurate advice about colleges and sometimes have processes that make completing the early college admission process on time a difficult challenge.
