How to get your transcripts

Electronic transcripts are now available!

We have transitioned to a new vendor for processing official transcript orders. Parchment will allow transcripts to be sent electronically, allowing students much quicker access to their information. Official paper transcripts will continue to be available if needed.

Official transcripts

Currently enrolled students

Currently enrolled students may order their official transcripts through CMS Student Center. You will be prompted to login to the CSUMB dashboard and to CMS to access the “Order Official Transcripts” link in your Student Center.

Former students

Former students may order their official transcripts online through Parchment’s Ordering Service.

Transcript ordering does not currently have the option to hold for degree posting or final grades. If you are waiting for either, please review your unofficial transcript for accuracy before ordering an official transcript.

Please Note: A transcript will not be issued until all outstanding obligations, fees or holds due to the University are cleared. If you have any current outstanding obligations or holds at the University, the system will not allow you to request a transcript.

CSUMB is also mailing official transcripts through Parchment. The look of the mailings is a little different from official transcripts coming directly from CSUMB. They are mailed in an envelope from Parchment marked 'Official Document'. Both official transcripts mailed by CSUMB and Parchment are printed on security paper, are sealed, and both are equally valid.
