Posting of Degree Completion on Official Record and Transcripts
At the end of each semester, Graduate Studies evaluators carefully review each student's file to ensure that all requirements (completion of required courses, completion of culminating activity, continuous enrollment, GPA, credits taken in residence, etc.) have been completed. This a complex process that happens one student at a time for the hundreds of students who apply to graduate each semester. Moreover, this process cannot get fully underway until approximately threes after the semester ends and the Registrar's office certifies that all grades for the final semester have been posted. Accordingly, it may be one to two months after the end of a student's final semester when the degree completion is added to the student's official record and transcripts.
Transcripts can be ordered from the Records and Registration Office. The request form is available on their website at http://www.csuchico.edu/sro/forms/transcript.shtml
