Step 4: Send Your Official Transcripts

Access to registration will only be granted to students who have both deposited and submitted official transcripts from all institutions listed on their application. All incoming students will have an automatic "Academic Hold" placed on their account until official transcripts are received. You must send official transcripts prior to orientation to have this hold removed and complete registration. 

If you have not already submitted official, sealed transcripts, please send them as soon as possible to avoid any delay in registration:

University of San Francisco 
Office of Graduate Admission
2130 Fulton Street - Lone Mountain
San Francisco, CA 94117

If your institution issues official electronic copies of transcripts, you may send them to:

Your online application will reflect when transcripts have been "received-official". Please log in to your online application to check the status of your transcripts. 

You will not be permitted to register for your second semester classes until your official transcript has been received and verified. As stated in the online application, USF reserves the right to rescind admission based upon official documents received or not received.

Step 12: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities

The Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records

  • Privacy of Records:
    Under federal law, students' records (including grades, GPA, class schedule, tuition and billing records, and more) cannot be disclosed to any third-party, even parents or spouses, without the written authorization of the student (some exceptions apply). To learn more about your FERPA rights, go to Privacy Information for Students (FERPA).
  • Student Consent to Release Information:
    Students who wish to allow a third-party (parents, siblings, etc.) to view their education records must submit a form authorizing the access. Access can be granted to academic records, tuition and billing records, and/or financial aid records. Go to Registration and Student Records Forms for instructions on how to submit the form.
  • What if I don't submit the Student Consent to Release Information form?
    If you do not authorize your someone to have access to your records, USF will not disclose any information to them. This means that your spouse or parents will not be able to call USF to find out information about your financial aid or balance even if they are helping you pay your tuition.
