  • Processing time doesn’t account for the time it takes the student to clear any holds.
  • We cannot guarantee your transcript’s arrival or the time it will take to reach its destination once it has left our office. Contact us at if your transcript has not been received within 3 weeks of the date of the request. At that time, your request details will be reviewed.

Visiting UC students are excluded from having to pay the transcript fee when transferring their courses to their home UC campus. After grades are posted, transcripts will automatically be sent to the student's home campus.

Transcripts may be picked up at the Students First Center during normal business hours or be requested to be mailed. Transcripts not picked up within three months will be destroyed and the student will be responsible for the cost of a new transcript request.
