CGU has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to act as its agent to manage online and electronic transcript ordering services for students and former students. In addition, the NSC provides CGU's enrollment and degree verification services to third parties. All NSC services comply with requirements of the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
For more information about the formats of CGU official transcripts and standards of authenticity, please see Authenticity of Official Transcripts section of the Registrar's website.
The following conditions apply to all transcript requests.
Please note: CGU offices will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving from Wednesday, November 21 through Sunday, November 25. Transcript and verification orders received during that time will be processed as quickly as possible beginning on Monday, November 26th when our team returns.

Standard processing time is 3 to 5 business days. Rush processing available for an additional fee. Credit card payment required.

Unofficial Transcripts (available for current students only)
Current students may view and print their unofficial transcript through their MyCGU portal at any time, provided they do not have any holds on their record which prevent the release of transcripts. Note: Unofficial transcripts are downloads of data from your official academic record. Because these documents do not identify Claremont Graduate University as the source, they are considered unofficial and are not recommended for sharing with or distributing to third parties.
Participants in degree programs at CGU are considered current students regardless if the student has earned a previous degree from CGU. For these individuals, continuing student policies and procedures apply.
Individuals who previously attended CGU, but did not receive a degree, are not considered alumni for the purpose of this policy. These individuals may enroll in summer courses as a Summer Visitor or must petition for reinstatement as a CGU student. If the last semester of enrollment for the former student was five or more years in the past, an application through Admissions is required. Tuition and fees for the semester of enrollment apply for all enrolled and visiting students.
Enrollment in courses must be completed before the Add/Drop deadline for regular session announced in the Academic Calendar for the semester of interest.
Alumni are limited to no more than 12 units or three courses on an alumni registration basis. Beyond that, students should return to CGU as a student in a new degree program. Refer to CGU instructions regarding Admission.
Applicable tuition and fees are available from the Tuition & Fees table on the Student Accounts website. The following provisions apply to alumni who meet the definition above and who are taking classes for personal enrichment; alumni rates are not eligible for students seeking an additional degree at CGU.
Note: Per federal requirements, financial aid is NOT available to alumni and students in non-degree programs, such as Certificate programs.
The CGU transcript is an official record of an individual's enrollment at the University. When an alumnus is enrolled for courses in a new term, the term is created on the student's transcript and the course or courses recorded, similar to other CGU courses taken by the student. All grades received are factored into the student's GPA.
If the alumnus is subsequently admitted as a student, courses taken as an alumnus may be counted toward the student's degree program if applicable to the discipline or field of the degree.
