On-Campus Resources

We are continuing to seek ways to enhance our services to students and will continue to keep you informed of new developments.

Transcripts
The Office of the Registrar is pleased to announce that students no longer have to pay $4 for a copy of their unofficial SDSU transcripts. They can now find them on the web. Please advise interested students to visit http://www.sdsu.edu/e-services and click on "Unofficial Transcripts" to view and/or print their unofficial SDSU transcripts. At this web site, students can also change their address, register for classes, pay fees, and much more. "Unofficial" transcripts report the same course and grade information as the official transcripts. However, they are not considered official because they do not have the official university seal imprinted on them and they are not suitable for transfer purposes. Unofficial transcripts are used primarily for student reference. Official transcripts cost $4 and are usually transmitted directly between institutions when a student is transferring to another college. Students can visit www.sdsu.edu/registrar for information about ordering official transcripts.
