General Information Regarding Transcripts

You must pay transcript fees at the time you submit your request or include the payment with your letter.  The first two transcripts ever requested are free; thereafter, $5.00 per copy.  A $2.00 handling fee will be added to the transcript requests submitted through our online method.

Allow 5 to 7 days processing time from the date we receive your request or letter.  Please allow at least two weeks additional time if it is the end of a semester and you do not want us to wait for the current semester's grades.

IGETC AND CSU/GE CERTIFICATION, if needed, should be requested with your final transcript request. Complete the information on CSU/GE certification or IGETC certification, or indicate in your letter if you would like this completed at the time your transcript is sent. If you intend to use other college course work for the certification, be sure your transcripts are on file and indicate on the transcript request or your letter that you would like us to include prior college work. If you intend to use course work from your high school(s) for the language area, you need to have your high school transcripts on file and indicate on your request or letter that you would like your high school course work included for the certification.

Indicate on the request form or in your letter:

If you would like current semester grades on the transcript, you can request this transcript 3 weeks before the end of the semester. For short term classes that ended mid-semester, transcripts are not available until after the end of semester grade posting. Be sure you indicate this on the transcript request form or in your letter. You will need to allow at least 4-6 weeks from the end of the semester before grades will be posted for transcript processing.

Transcripts requests using our online process generate either an electronic transmission or a paper transcript.  Both methods are official transcripts.  Whenever possible, MiraCosta College will submit the transcript to the receiving institution electronically.  At the time of the online transcript request, students will be able to determine whether or not the transcript can be submitted electronically.
