    Submit Final Transcripts

    Final Official Transcripts—Due July 15, 2018

    You must have your school send official transcripts that include spring 2018 grades.

    Your admission eligibility was determined using the information you reported on your application for admission. All courses you listed as in progress or planned in your senior year must be completed with grades of C- or higher. You must also maintain your reported overall grade point average. Your transcript(s) will be used to verify your self-reported information. If your grade point average and/or current course grades drop, or if there is a discrepancy in what you reported on your application compared to your transcript(s), your offer of admission may be withdrawn.

    Transcript and Test Score Instructions

    Official Transcripts

    Official transcripts are required from all high schools and colleges you previously attended even if you withdrew from the course(s) or the course(s) were non-academic or not applicable to your college major. College courses listed on high school transcripts will not be considered official.

    You must request that official transcripts, bearing the high school or college letterhead, be sent directly to the SDSU Office of Admissions either electronically or in a sealed envelope. For a transcript to be considered official, it must remain in its original sealed envelope. If opened, the transcript will no longer be valid. Please request your transcripts as soon as grades are posted so that the transcripts will arrive by the deadlines. (Note that it can take several weeks for a school to send a transcript once it is ordered.)

    Electronic College Transcripts
    You must submit transcripts from all colleges you attended while in high school (including spring 2018 grades). SDSU will only accept electronic transcripts from the schools listed here. Please ensure that you indicate this preference when making your request.

    For colleges that do not supply electronic transcripts, the school should send the transcripts directly to:
