Transcript Information

Transcripts are a complete record of all courses and degrees completed at Fresno State. Official transcripts are issued in individually sealed envelopes. All outstanding university financial obligations must be cleared before your transcript can be released.

Coursework from other institutions will not appear on your Fresno State transcript. As stated in the University Catalog, transcripts of records from other institutions submitted to Fresno State are not returned to students.  Fresno State will not provide official or unofficial copies of transcripts from other institutions.

Electronic PDF Transcripts

Electronic PDF transcripts are available to students, current or former, who attended Fresno State after 2002. A partnership with Credentials Solutions allows us to deliver secure, certified electronic PDF transcripts. We recommend you confirm with your recipient that they will accept the transcript in this format before you order. Orders placed before 5:00pm will be processed that same business day.
