Transcript Policies and Services

Our goal is to provide quick, reliable, low-cost service to the many people who request their Fuller transcripts each year. To accomplish this, those desiring special services are responsible for the extra costs incurred.

 

What's Included- The transcript of your official permanent academic record includes all work ever done for academic credit at Fuller. It covers all degree programs. Separate transcripts are not available for individual degree programs or calendar periods. Only the complete transcript is issued. Audit enrollments are recorded until Winter Quarter of 1987.

 

Please check your transcript online using the Student Records Menu link (login required) on www.fuller.edu/registrar, and submit your transcript request when you know that all the grades you are expecting have been posted and/or that a degree has been posted. You are responsible for determining that your transcript is ready to be sent. Your transcript request will be processed when we receive it.

 

HOW TO REQUEST- choose one of the four options below:

(a separate Transcript Order form is required for each destination address and/or recipient)

 

Option 1- Complete a Transcript Request form at our office in Pasadena or at any Regional Campus office.

 

Option 2- Download, print, and complete the Transcript Request form using the link below (lower left corner of web page) and mail it to the Registrar’s Office (address below).

 

Option 3- Fax your Transcript Request form to the Registrar's office at (626) 584-5564 as long as proper online payment has been made. We must have your written signature as part of the request.

 

Option 4- Email a scanned copy of your Transcript Request form to transcripts@fuller.edu as long as proper online payment has been made. We must have your written signature as part of the request.

 

Fuller cannot assume responsibility for mail not delivered to its intended destination. Please complete your requests form so that your intended recipient's details are legible and easily understood.

PROCESSING TIMES

 

Normal Service- Transcripts will normally be sent (or be ready for pickup) by the end of the second working day after the day we receive your request. For example, if we receive your request on Monday, regular service means we will send your transcript by the end of the day Wednesday. Always get your request to us as early as possible to avoid delays, extra charges, and possible disappointment.

 

Emergency Service-Emergency Service is usually available at an additional cost. Emergency Service charges apply when you want us guarantee to have a transcript ready to be picked up or sent earlier than the time described under Normal Service above. If your need is urgent, contact the Registrar’s Office to see if Emergency Service will be necessary and available before sending us your request.

 

 

METHODS OF DELIVERY

 

USPS first-class mail- standard and included in the basic charge for all hard-copy transcripts.

 

USPS Priority Mail- available as an option at an additional cost for destinations within the United States. NOTE- Priority Mail delivery is separate and distinct from Emergency Service processing (see above regarding Normal and Emergency Service processing).

 

Electronic (PDF) Transcripts- A special service of secure electronic delivery of an official PDF copy of your transcript is available through eScrip-Safe®. A notification that your transcript is available for secure download is emailed 1) to an eScrip-Safe® network member institution or 2) to an email address that you specify. You will receive an email when the transcript is sent, and when the transcript is downloaded and opened. For more information, click here.

 

Fuller cannot assume responsibility for mail not delivered to its intended destination. Please complete your requests form so that your intended recipient's details are legible and easily understood.

 

 

ADDITIONAL IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Holds

Transcripts will not be issued unless admission has been finalized. Also, the Seminary is not obligated to furnish a transcript to any student or former student whose financial obligations to the Seminary have not been satisfied.

 

Charges and Payment

There is a basic charge for each transcript copy (see above). There are no free copies, and no reduced charges when multiple copies are requested at the same time. Appropriate payment for all charges is required in order to fulfill your request. If payment is not received with this request or in advance through our online payment system, no transcript can be issued until payment is received. We cannot charge student accounts or access any credit that may exist there.

Please calculate your charges carefully and pay accordingly. Inadequate payment may delay your transcript while we contact you for additional payment.

 

Transcripts Content Details

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are not a part of your academic record, and therefore do not appear on your transcript. We do not provide unofficial transcripts. Courses registered and grades received in a given quarter will not appear on your transcript until about three weeks after the end of the quarter. Degrees may not be posted for ten weeks or more after the end of the quarter. To keep costs low, we do not hold requests until various conditions are met, such as the changing or posting of grades or degrees.

We're sorry, but copies of transcripts (even unofficial copies) of credit earned at other institutions are not available from Fuller Theological Seminary. You must address such requests directly to the institutions which granted the credit.
