Important Transcript Information

Grades & Degree Candidates

To verify your degree, select Graduation/Commencement from your My Academics tab in Catalyst. Then, select View Graduation Status to see your degree conferral status. If your graduation status is pending, your degree will not yet be listed on your transcript. Check your final grades by selecting the Grades/Transcript/Enroll Cert menu, then View My Grades.

Processing Time and Fees

Most transcripts will be processed within 1-3 business days, but could take up to 5-7 business days during peak times, such as the end of the semester. Transcript requests for alumni and former students who attended the University before 1999 may require additional processing time as their secure records must be retrieved from University archives. Once the order is confirmed, it cannot be canceled, changed, held, or refunded. The cost of each electronic transcript ordered is $8.50. The cost of each paper transcript ordered is $11.00. Paper transcripts are provided with mail tracking information and express shipping may be purchased for an additional cost.


Notifications will be sent to your email directly from Parchment indicating the progress of your request for an eTranscript. If you are having your transcript sent to your UC email account, check your Junk Mail folder for communications from Parchment and your eTranscript delivery.
