Bulldog Next Steps

PD 2019

Upper Division Transfer 

Congratulations! By now you’ve received your letter of acknowledgment and are ready to think about your next steps to becoming a Fresno State Bulldog. 

*Dates are subject to change. Please check your email and this website regularly for the latest updates.

Follow the steps below to ensure a smooth transition to Fresno State.

Step 1-  TRANSCRIPT & DOCUMENT DEADLINE- (January 30th, 2019)

TRANSCRIPT & DOCUMENT DEADLINE 

Submit residency information (if required) and transcripts if requested.

Transcripts: Submit one official transcript from EACH institution attended. Fresno State accepts electronic official transcripts directly from many colleges and universities.  Requesting and sending etranscripts will help the admissions office expedite the processing and review of your transcripts.

We will not accept credit for one institution on another institution’s transcript. Failure to report and/or submit an official transcript for each institution will result in withdrawal of an application.

NOTE: Transcripts must show all final grades through fall 2018. If you are attending college in spring 2019, we will need to receive transcripts reporting those courses as in progress. You will continue to see Transcripts on your TO DO list until we receive your Final Spring 2019 grades. 

Having your school submit your transcript directly to Fresno State is required. To shorten processing time, please choose electronic submission of transcripts, if available, when ordering.  Please use imaging@csufresno.edu as the recipient for official transcripts directly from your institution.

                                        Send official transcripts to:
                                    Undergraduate Admissions Office
                                   5150 N. Maple Avenue, M/S, JA 57
                                         Fresno, CA, 93740-8026

Step 2- Check Official Transcript Status

TRANSCRIPT STATUS

How to check if official transcripts were received by the university

NOTE: If any in-progress transcripts show on the page, pay attention to the date of the transcript. If dates are future dates, then we have received the most updated official transcript. You will not need to order a new one until you finish the current term in-progress. 

If you are no longer planning to take any future classes at the institution you are transferring coursework from, then you will need to resubmit another official transcript showing no more in-progress work. Keep in mind; we are only accepting electronic transcripts from all campuses that offer e-transcripts.

Step 3- Admission Notification-  (February-April 1st, 2019)
