A transcript is a record of your academic work throughout high school (and even some middle school). It's a document that lists every high school course you took, what grade you made, and how many credits you earned. The top of your transcript will always have your school and personal information (name, address, student ID number). The bottom of your transcript is where you can find your GPA (weighted and unweighted), Class Rank (weighted and unweighted), and how many credits you've earned.
When giving your GPA and Class Rank, you will always use the weighted number (SC UGP). This stands for the South Carolina Uniform Grading Policy. For most everyone, their weighted GPA is higher because it's on a 5.0 scale and gives you the credit for Honors, AP, and IB weighted classes. If an application specifically asks for your GPA or Class Rank on a "4.0 scale," then you will give your unweighted GPA and Class Rank.
