MyUCSC Portal Password

Yours password is required each time you use the MyUCSC portal. Your password is assigned to you when you receive your student identification number.

We strongly suggest that you change your password and set up a password hint the first time you access the MyUCSC portal. You may select a minimum of eight characters (one character must be a numeral) as your new password. You may also change your password any time thereafter.

It is extremely important that your password remain confidential. Do not give it to anyone. If you forget your password or believe the privacy of your password has been compromised, email help@ucsc.edu to reset your password.

Name Change

Name Change petitions are available online from the Office of the Registrar. A student who is currently enrolled or has applied to graduate and is requesting an official name change on their academic records must complete this form and present it, in person, at the Office of the Registrar. You must submit documentation showing legal change of name (court order) or use of requested name on official documentation (e.g., drivers license, social security card, passport, marriage certificate, etc.). You may also correct your name at the Office of the Registrar if, for example, it is misspelled or the punctuation is incorrect. Be prepared to show proof of the correctly spelled name.

When you file a Name Change petition, you may also order and pay for a new student ID card at the Bay Tree Bookstore Building.

Nonrelease of Public Information

The following information is considered public information and may be disclosed: name, telephone numbers, campus email address, college, division, department, field(s) of study (including major, minor, concentration, specialization, and similar designations), class level (e.g. frosh, senior), dates of attendance, number of credits enrolled in the current term, degrees and honors, and name, weight, and height of intercollegiate athletes.

To have this information withheld from release, go to the Personal Information area on the MyUCSC portal and select privacy settings from the drop-down menu. Be sure that you understand the implications of filing this request. Every single item listed above will be withheld.

Once a Request for Nonrelease of Public Information is filed, it remains in effect—even after you are no longer attending UCSC—until you request to rescind it via the MyUCSC portal, or by letter.

Transcript 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: with or without evaluations. See ordering transcripts for information about ordering transcripts and for transcript fees.

Transcripts with evaluations include:

Courses graded P, A, B, C, D, F, W, or I. NP will appear for courses taken fall 2001 and after. The grades of A, B, C, and D may be modified by a plus (+) or minus (-). Incompletes lapse at the end of the subsequent quarter; in letter-graded courses, the I lapses to an F, in Pass/No Pass grading, to a No Pass.

Degrees awarded, honors, number of transfer credits, evaluations of courses, and an evaluation of comprehensive examination or senior thesis also appear.
