I don't know for sure, but I suspect it is true.  This sort of thing is
not usually optional.  If time is a factor, send in a photocopy and
include a note the the original will be sent separately as soon as possible.
But I know that most colleges will send out transcripts very quickly if
it is an emergency. My alma mater will FAX registered transcripts the
same day if necessary.

I typed mine on the computer then formatted the page to fit in the
margins and taped it in as you suggested.  And they didn't seem to
mind -- I got the award.  I think that it ill not be a problem.

Good luck.
