Important Information

  • Current delays to the mailing system may affect the delivery time of your Official Transcript.  Campus closures including approved holidays can also affect processing time, please refer to the academic calendar and holiday observances calendar.
  • Due to the high volume of requests at the beginning and end of each semester, transcript processing time varies.  Time-sensitive orders should be requested early to ensure that the recipient receives your transcript(s) prior to any application deadlines or opportunities.
  • Due to campus closure we are unable to provide the student pick-up option at this time.
  • All transcript orders need to be made through the student portal MyCSUSM. Please refer to the Transcripts page if you need assistance resetting your portal access.

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
