Ordering UCSC Transcripts
Document Management Fee
Information on the proposed Document Management Fee by the Office of the Registrar is available here.
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 $25 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 $17 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 email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ordering UCSC Transcripts
The Office of the Registrar produces all printed transcripts for the University of California, Santa Cruz. For UCSC Extension transcripts see below. UCSC has retained Credentials Solutions to accept online transcript orders. Please click on the TranscriptsPlus button below to request a transcript with a credit card or debit card. There is an additional $2.75 per transcript service charge to use this service. This is a secure, encrypted site. If you are uncomfortable placing an order over the Internet, you may call Credentials Solutions at 800-646-1858 to place your transcript request. There is an additional operator surcharge for placing orders over the telephone.
Check the status of your order by clicking on the link below.
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 opt for rush processing service for an additional $23. Rush orders—without additional add-on services—are guaranteed to be processed within two business days after your order completes. If you elect to add a notarization to your rush order, we cannot guarantee that it will be processed within two business days. Please call the Office of the Registrar prior to placing your order to speak with one of our notaries regarding the timeline. Do not order the rush service if you intend to hold your transcripts for degrees or grades, or if you are working with your college to complete a transcript attachment for the Common Application.
You may order a same-day transcript ($17 for a transcript, $23 for rush, plus $23 for special processing) in person at the Office of the Registrar between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, excluding holidays.
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.
