Transcripts Information

Transcripts are the official document of the student's academic work at a college or university.

To send transcripts FROM the San Diego Community College District:


Transcripts from other institutions attended:
  • Students should submit official transcripts from all Colleges and Universities attended.
  • Students should submit only ONE transcript even if planning to attend all three colleges; City, Mesa and Miramar.
  • Transcripts from foreign institutions are not required.
  • Transcripts are required even if prior credits do not appear relevant or if units were taken years ago.
  • Students receiving financial aid or veterans benefits must have transcripts on file within one semester.
  • Certain programs require transcripts are on file before admission to the program.
  • Official transcripts from other institutions become the property of the college and will not be duplicated or returned.
  • Guam and Puerto Rico are US territories and transcripts from institutions in these territories are not considered "foreign" and should be submitted.

Submission of transcripts:
  • Due to the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the office closure, electronic transcripts, including PDF, are preferred.  We will accept mailed copies but those will be severely delayed until we are permitted to return to work.

  • When ordering a transcript, if the sending institution has partnered with Credentials/E-Scrip-Safe, the transcript will be sent as a PDF directly to the San Diego Community College District for City College, Mesa College, or Miramar College.

  • We are currently working to establish direct accounts with Parchment and the National Student Clearinghouse.  In the interim, regardless of the institution you are sending from, request to send the transcript to the following email address:
  • Students are responsible for requesting official transcripts from each institution attended to be sent to SDCCD.
  • Transcripts from foreign institutions are not required.
  • Transcripts are only accepted from one year after issuance.

Processing of Transcripts:
  • Once the transcripts are received, it is reviewed for the number of transferable units and for prerequisites.
  • Transcripts are not automatically evaluated for a student's educational goal.  Please contact college counseling to determine if you need to submit a Request for Transcript Evaluation form. 


Transferability of Credits:

Credits from other regionally accredited institutions will only be accepted for transfer credit after evaluation by the District Evaluations office.
