Prospective Students

eTranscript California

Thanks to the Internet-based eTranscript California system, an increasing number of California community colleges can send your transcripts to CSUN electronically. If you are transferring course work from one or more of the community colleges listed on this page, take advantage of eTranscript California.

Save time and money!  eTranscript California:

  • Is faster than paper transcripts because we receive them quickly—within a day or so.
  • Reduces the time it takes us to evaluate your transfer course work.
  • Is free of charge to students who have attended any of the California community colleges in List 1 below.
    • If you are applying for admission to CSUN, we will request your e-transcripts from the schools in List 1 and they will be sent to us automatically. In some cases, your school may be unable to fulfill our request for your transcript. Check your CSUN Portal regularly to make sure we have received your transcript(s).
    • If your schools are in List 2 below, you will need to order and possibly pay your school for e-transcripts to be sent to CSUN. They might be free, but check the rules for ordering transcripts at your college.

Please note:

  1. CSUN accepts e-transcripts from California community colleges through the eTranscript California system only. Electronic transcripts from other vendors or those sent to us in Portable Document Format (PDF) must be printed and processed manually, so they are no faster than paper transcripts, taking up to eight weeks to evaluate.
  2. Please do not send identical, duplicate paper and/or electronic transcripts!

Check the two (2) lists of California community colleges on this page to see if they can send your transcripts to CSUN through eTranscript California. If you are not applying for admission but want to transfer credits to CSUN, see "E-transcripts for current CSUN students" below.  

IMPORTANT: Please read the special instructions with each list.

List 1 - Schools that accept CSUN's request to send e-transcripts at time of application

The following California community colleges will automatically send e-transcripts at CSUN's request at the time you submit your application for CSUN admission.

IMPORTANT!  If you are in any of the following situations, YOU must request your transcripts from the community colleges in List 1 (CSUN cannot request them):

  • You did not report attending the school in your Cal State Apply application, and/or
  • You did not report a work-in-progress course on your application, and/or
  • You reported course work "in progress" when you submitted your application. CSUN will request your work-in-progress (preliminary) transcripts, but YOU will need to ask your college to send CSUN your final transcripts with grades posted for those previously in-progress courses.
