How to Order Your Official SDSU Transcript – Grades

Hepner Hall at SDSUPlease read the following information carefully about how to get your grades from your SDSU and Special Session classes.

Go to your UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS in WebPortal to check that your grades are posted and accurate BEFORE ordering OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS.  Your grades should be officially posted after May 17, 2017.  (Grades appearing on Blackboard are NOT your official posted grades.)

UNOFFICIAL TRANSCRIPTS

You can print unofficial transcripts from the SDSU WebPortal as soon as your grades are posted. Check WebPortal, not Blackboard. You may receive an error message on the Unofficial Transcript until May 31st.  https://sunspot.sdsu.edu/pls/webapp/web_menu.login/

OFFICIAL PAPER TRANSCRIPTS

You can order official transcripts directly through WebPortal (again, WebPortal, not Blackboard) for a fee of $10.00 each. https://sunspot.sdsu.edu/pls/webapp/web_menu.login/

To request your official transcripts, go to WebPortal and click on “Order Transcripts.”  Select your desired format and click “continue.”

Transcripts will be sent to the address you indicate. It is your responsibility to enter a complete and accurate address. You should check with your university prior to ordering transcripts to make sure you have the complete and correct address. Paper transcripts will be mailed after the grades are posted and should arrive 6-8 weeks from the send date (the earliest send date may be in the middle of June), but can take longer depending on mail delivery in your home country.

OFFICIAL ELECTRONIC TRANSCRIPTS

You can order official electronic transcripts directly through WebPortal (again, WebPortal, not Blackboard) for a fee of $10.00 each.  https://sunspot.sdsu.edu/pls/webapp/web_menu.login/

To request your official transcripts, go to WebPortal and click on “Order Transcripts.” Select your desired format and click “continue.”

WARNING: Do NOT order electronic transcripts until your grades have been officially posted or you will receive a blank transcript. If you cannot print an unofficial transcript, your grades have not been posted.  (Check the Unofficial Transcript, NOT My Grades) If you order an electronic transcript too early and receive a blank document, you will have to reorder and pay again.

Transcripts will be sent to the email address you indicate. It is your responsibility to enter a complete and accurate email address, and to ensure that the recipient is able to accept PDF documents.  You should check with your university prior to ordering transcripts to make sure that they will accept PDF documents, and for the complete and correct e-mail address. Also, you must open the electronic PDF transcript in Adobe Acrobat, NOT in a web browser, since it is a secure document.

GRADUATE STUDENTS

All transcripts will say “Undergraduate transcript.” Graduate classes are designated by a course number level 600 and above. We can send you a letter stating you were enrolled as a graduate student if a problem arises.

NO BLACKBOARD ACCESS

You will continue to be able to access WebPortal with your Red ID and password for many years; however, you will not have Blackboard access after this semester has finished.  Therefore, if you expect to need documents from Blackboard, such as course syllabi, I strongly advise that you download and save or print them now.  It will be difficult and time-consuming to obtain these documents after the semester ends.

Please contact the Transcript Unit (transcripts@mail.sdsu.edu) if you have any questions regarding your paper transcript or if your transcript does not arrive 6-8 weeks from the sent date (meaning it could arrive in the middle of August). You should receive a confirmation from the registrar’s office once your order has been sent.
