A transcript is an official copy of a student’s academic history at UCSC. A student’s degree is usually posted to their transcript within six weeks after the end of the quarter in which they applied to graduate.
Diplomas are mailed to the active permanent address two to three months after the quarter in which you graduated. Permanent address may be updated on MyUCSC. See additional diploma information here.
Certificate of Completion
A Certificate of Completion shows that you will be receiving your degree or that you have received your degree.
A Certificate of Completion is available to any student who has received a degree or has completed all requirements for the degree and has applied to graduate for a future quarter. Currently enrolled students or students who have not had all transcripts from other institutions evaluated are not eligible for a Certificate of Completion.
Certificates of Completion indicate the student’s name, the date the degree was or will be awarded, the type of degree (B.A., B.S., etc), and the student’s major, college, and honors, if any.
To request a Certificate of Completion, fill out the Request for Certificate of Completion of Degree Requirements form, and send the form with a $15 check made payable to “UC Regents” to the Office of the Registrar.
