I plan to update (each school that allows) with my grades for this semester, but I am unsure of how to do so.
Do I order official transcripts, scan them then upload?
Screenshot unofficial transcripts?
My school does not give us access to download our unofficial transcripts, they just show under the school's portal. Helppppp

It isn't necessary to send an official transcript unless it's asked for. A narrative summary of the highlights is sufficient. Something like, "I earned a 3.72/4.0 for my 2017 fall term, which includes As in Embryology and Biochemistry and an A- in Genetics with lab." (No need to mention the B in Badminton Strategies.)

Wow interesting and good to hear! I was under the impression that they would want to see an unofficial transcript at the least.

It's pretty sure that no one will lie about their grades when an official final transcript will be required by the school to which one will eventually matriculate.

I have a class that ends mid december, but I don't get the grade until January 9th (officially in terms of on a transcript). If my professor lets us know the grade ahead of time I assume its fine to update it then? I would most likely couple it with a new pub that should be accepted by then so it wouldn't just be a sole grade by itself, just wanted to see if its fine before its actually "on the transcript" or should I just wait until Jan 9th?

You know that expression, "There's many a slip twixt the cup and the lip?" Best to wait until it's official.
