Transcript Information

Transcripts are a complete record of all courses and degrees completed at Fresno State. Official transcripts are issued in individually sealed envelopes. Coursework from other institutions will not appear on your Fresno State transcript.

We will not process transcript requests until all grades are submitted by faculty. In addition all outstanding university financial obligations must be cleared before your transcript can be released.

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

Unofficial Transcripts

At this time, only registered Fresno State students are able to obtain an unofficial transcript. You can access unofficial transcripts from your Student Center by logging into My Fresno State.

Official Transcripts

All current and former Fresno State students have three options for ordering official transcripts: 

  • Online - You can order your official transcripts online by accessing the Credentials Solutions website. Official transcripts ordered online are processed within 1-2 business days, please allow additional time for delivery by U.S. Mail. Expedited and Fed Ex shipping options are available when you order online. Emailed transcripts are available for ordering online and are the quickest way for you or a third party to receive your transcript. Emailed transcripts are sent as a PDF file. These orders are often processed the same business day. Please note, the PDF option is primarily available only to students who attended Fresno State after 2002. Call us at 559.278.4743 if you would like for us to verify your eligibility for a PDF transcript.
  • Mail - Use the 'Request for Official Transcript' form to place your order. Additional instructions are located on the form. Please include payment (check or money order) made payable to Fresno State.
  • In Person - You can order and walk out with up to three (3) official transcripts at the Student Services Center in Joyal Administration Building, North Lobby. You will need to bring a valid photo ID. Transcript fees are referenced below. A $10 rush fee is applied on top of regular transcript fees if ordering and walking out with three (3) copies.
  • Please note: If someone else will be requesting in person and/or picking-up your transcript, you need to provide a signed release authorizing the third party to request and/or pick-up your transcript. Please include their name and instruct them to bring a valid photo ID.
