Transcripts - Former Students/Alumni
Former CSULB students and alumni may request to receive official transcripts by email (fastest) or physical mail (may take up to 7-10 business days to process).
- Turn off your pop-up blocker
- Have your CSULB campus ID ready, (If you cannot remember your campus ID, use your social security number. If you do not have a social security number, enter 111223333 in the social security number field).
- Have your debit or credit card ready for payment; all official transcripts are $12 per transcript
- Have the recipient’s address available
If you graduated or attended prior to Fall 1988, your transcript is not available in electronic format. Please allow at least 7-10 days for processing and paper delivery.
Contact Credentials Solutions at 847.716.3005 between 7:00 am to 8:00 pm Monday-Thursday or between 7:00 am to 6:00 pm on Fridays for technical support.
If you are a current CSULB student, you can access the request for official transcript form via MyCSULB Student Center.
Former students and alumni can send official transcript PDFs to any valid email address. Students also have the option to order paper transcripts that can be mailed (may take 7-10 business days). In support of CSULB's sustainability goals, on-demand requests for printed transcripts at the Brotman Hall Beach Central in-take windows are no longer accepted.
Digital transcripts are considered official transcripts, but forwarding a digital transcript renders that transcript unofficial. If your transcript is going to a third party, send it directly to their email address.
California State University, Long Beach has appointed Credentials Solutions as the designated agent for processing and sending official transcripts through an encrypted and secure service on behalf of California State University, Long Beach. This system can accept an order for up to 5 transcripts to be sent to 5 different recipients. If you need to send more than 5 transcripts or have more than 5 recipients, you will need to submit multiple orders. At the completion of each order you will have the option to return to the beginning of the process and enter another order. In most cases, you will only have to enter the information that is different than in the previous order.
Note: If you graduated or attended prior to Fall 1988, your transcript is not available in electronic format; therefore, processing time may take up to 7-10 days to mail a paper copy.
If you need proof of enrollment without the details typically outlined on a transcript, (e.g., for job applications, military service benefits, insurance discounts), CSULB enrollment verification certificates are available through the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC).
The National Student Clearinghouse is an authorized agent with which CSULB has contracted with for degree verification purposes. There is a nominal charge for the services provided by the Clearinghouse. If you are an employer or background-screening firm requesting this information, please contact the National Student Clearinghouse directly. This service cannot provide verification of your grade point average. If you require your grade point average or additional details, we recommend requesting Official Transcripts.
Note: If you are a recent graduate of CSULB, you may still be able to use the National Student Clearinghouse tile through your SSO (Single Sign-On) Dashboard. Your account remains active for a limited time after your last enrollment.
