Transcript Policies

  • All transcripts are official and are enclosed in separate, sealed envelopes. Transcripts are not faxed.
  • Processing time may be longer: a) for students who attended prior to 1982, b) during Registration periods as well as at the end of a term, and c) due to printing and technical difficulties.
  • Requests are processed on a first come, first serve basis. Normally, 1-3 business days must be allowed for processing but can take up to two weeks. 
  • Transcripts will not be issued until all outstanding financial obligations with the University are paid.
  • The University reserves the right to control the conditions by which its transcripts are distributed; as a legal document, the University is responsible for the accuracy and validity of the transcripts.
  • Only University of San Francisco transcripts will be issued. Transcripts from other schools must be ordered from original sources to ensure validity and accuracy. This includes, but is not limited to test scores such as; ACT, SAT, GRE.
  • The University is not responsible for the accuracy of addresses provided. Any transcript request with incomplete address(es) or insufficient information for processing, or unaccompanied by the transcript fee, will be returned to the sender.
