Ordering UCSC Transcripts

General Information

A transcript is an official copy of a student's academic history at UCSC. Two versions of your official UCSC student records are available from the Office of the Registrar at 190 Hahn: with or without evaluations.

Transcripts with evaluations include: Courses, grades, degrees awarded, honors, number of transfer credits, evaluations of courses, and an evaluation of comprehensive examination or senior thesis. The fee is $20 per copy. For information on narrative performance evaluations, please visit http://registrar.ucsc.edu/faqs/students/evaluations.html.

Transcripts without evaluations include: Courses, grades, degrees awarded, honors, and number of transfer credits. The fee is $15 per copy.

Note: Transcript requests are not processed if you have outstanding financial obligations to the university. If you received a message after ordering your transcripts that indicates you have a hold on your transcripts, please contact Student Business Services via e-mail at oarinfo@ucsc.edu.

Check Status of Transcript Order

Processing Time

The basic transcript order is processed within 5 to 10 working days from when the order completes. Processing may take longer during our peak season from November through March.

You may add a rush service to your order for $20. Rush orders are guaranteed to be processed within two business days after your order completes. Do not order the rush service if you intend to hold your transcripts for degrees or grades.

You may order a same-day transcript ($15 for a transcript, $20 for rush, plus $20 for special processing) in person at the Office of the Registrar before 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, excluding holidays.

Mailing Time

For regular mail service (First Class Mail), allow two to three days for delivery. Please be aware that due to the large volume of mail moving through the U.S. Postal Service system each day, it is not possible to track First-Class mail to confirm delivery. Due to the inability to track First-Class deliveries, the Office of the Registrar cannot provide refunds or duplicate transcripts for orders lost in the mail.

If you require confirmation of delivery, you may request and pay an additional fee for your transcript to be mailed via express mail service. This service provides fast delivery, tracking number, and confirmation once received. This service expedites transit time, not processing time, and may be requested with regular or rush transcript requests.

Federal Express is used for all express mail destinations, except post office box addresses and does not deliver on weekends. U.S. Postal Service Express Mailing is used for post office box addresses and does not provide tracking or confirmation of delivery. The additional charge for Federal Express within the U.S. is $20 for up to five transcripts going to the same address. The additional charge for Federal Express outside the U.S. is $30 per recipient (with or without evaluations). If the appropriate fee has not been received for express mail service, your transcript will be sent via regular mail.

Transcript Hold Options

You may request that your transcript be held until your grades, evaluations, or degree be posted to your record. Transcript holds are available as follows:

  • up to 10 days after the end of the quarter to include grades, or

  • up to six weeks after the end of the quarter to include evaluations or a degree if applicable.

Grades and degrees can be viewed on MyUCSC at any time.
