Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Office of the Registrar staff will be working remotely.  Consequently, transcript processing takes 5 to 10 business days to be mailed. PDF version is highly encouraged.

Official Transcripts

  • FASTEST METHOD is to order a PDF copy. To be eligible, you must have attended all classes after 1991.
  • Order your officialSJSU transcripts online:

Unofficial Transcripts

Log into your MySJSU to access your unofficial transcript. If you no longer have access to MySJSU, and you’ve attended after 1991, come in person to Window "R" in the Student Services Center, and we can print an unofficial copy for you (photo ID is required). If you cannot come in person, you must order an official transcript.

Transcript Content

Your transcript is a complete record of all undergraduate and graduate courses taken at SJSU. This includes semesters, course information, grades, cumulative grade point averages, and degree if applicable. Courses taken at another school will not print on your SJSU transcript.
