Unofficial Transcripts Request for Transfers

[This information is only for newly admitted transfer students starting fall quarter.]

Some departments/majors require that by July 1 you provide UNOFFICIAL transcripts from all community colleges and/or universities you have attended. This request from your major advisor is independent of the required official transcript submission to the Admissions Office. It is to your advantage to submit unofficial transcripts early. If you miss the July 1 deadline, your prerequisites may not be coded in time for you to enroll in classes.

You need to only send unofficial transcripts if you plan to declare one of the majors listed below. If you have a double major, and both of your majors are listed below, send your unofficial transcripts to both offices. For questions, contact the corresponding office directly.

You can send your transcripts via email as a PDF. On the unofficial transcript please include your full name, UCSC 7-digit student ID #, email, and phone number, the name of the school the transcript is from, final grades and units earned for each course, and also indicate your intended major.

Special Note: If you are transferring from out-of-state or from a California UC/CSU campus, a course syllabus might be required; if so, your major advisor will ask you for the syllabus.

PLEASE SEND THE UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS DIRECTLY TO THE CORRESPONDING OFFICE. For questions, contact the corresponding major office directly.

Below is the list of majors requesting unofficial transcripts. Look for your major and send your unofficial transcript directly to the major office.

NOTE: Send only to your major advisor
