Deadline to have all SEM students registered in Greenlight is Friday, Jan. 24th.

If you already have an account

NOTE: If you already have an account on GreenLightLocker.com (maybe you are taking dual credit courses at DCCCD), then there is no need to create another account on GreenLightLocker.com.

  1. Log into your account and navigate to your profile by clicking on your name in the top right corner.
  2. Click on “Claim Credentials” and paste your DISD provided GreenLight enrollment code. Then press the “Verify & Add” button. You will now see your DISD transcript in your locker.

*Obtain your GreenLight enrollment code from the letter given on Jan. 8 and Jan. 9. You may also stop by the office for a new copy of your enrollment code.

If you do not have an account

If you do not have an account on GreenLightLocker.com, you must register on the GreenLightLocker.com website to access your transcripts.

To set up a GreenLight profile:

Background Information about Greenlight

The link below provides access to the list of institutions to which the students will be able to send transcripts directly using the “Send to the Academic institution” option.

https://www.glcredentials.com/receiver-landing-page

Greenlight is working with several institutions to enable the electronic sending through SPEEDE and that should be available in the coming months. The students can use the “Send to Employers/Others (via email)” option to send transcripts to any institution that provides an email address for transcript vendors to send their transcripts to. This information is usually found on the college/university websites. The email will be sent from GreenLight Credentials and not from the student directly to the institution. For example, please see the Texas A&M website which lists an email address for transcript vendors to send transcripts to https://tamusbs.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1657/~/electronic-transcript

Summer Pre-College Programs at Carnegie Mellon

Carnagie Mellon Summer Programs

For over 100 years, Carnegie Mellon has offered students unique and hands-on educational programs from the fine arts to technology and everything in between. Through the Carnegie Mellon Pre-College Program, rising juniors and seniors in high school have the opportunity to experience this world-class education.

Mirroring the undergraduate experience, our Pre-College program gives students the opportunity to explore their interests while receiving instruction from acclaimed Carnegie Mellon faculty and staff. Students will also participate in a robust outside of the classroom experience.

Our summer Pre-College program options include the following:

  • Summer Session, students take two full-length Carnegie Mellon courses in a variety of disciplines, ranging from Computer Science, History to Music Technology.
  • Summer Academy for Math and Science, provides students from underrepresented communities the opportunity to achieve skills to pursue and complete majors in STEM fields.
  • National High School Game Academy, for students who want to learn about modern video game development through a unique blend of left- and right-brain college-level work.
  • Computational Biology, a three-week program for students looking to learn more about the intersection of the two disciplines.
  • Unique programs in the Fine Arts – Architecture, Art, Design, Drama or Music – in which the students experience developing their skills in a conservatory or studio setting.
  • Writing & Culture is our new program this year. Guided by the mentorship and instruction of our highly distinguished, permanent faculty members, students will improve their ability to analyze complex, ever-changing problems through astute investigations of culture and society.

Students may apply for the program here. Feel free to share this email with any student you think might be interested in applying!

If you have any questions, please contact us.
