How to Order Transcripts
Same day or express transcript orders are not available.
Official Cuesta transcripts may be ordered by one of the four options listed below. Order transcripts via the Internet for the quickest delivery of your transcripts. Transcripts prior to 1984 may require additional processing time. Transcript orders will not be processed if the student has an existing balance on their account, including the present term's registration fees, holds, or obligations. See Withholding of Student Records. Pay fees owed online through myCuesta by debit/credit card and a delinquent debt hold will be lifted within 10 minutes.

Students may access their unofficial transcripts (1984 to the present) via the myCuesta web portal. Go to the Student tab and Steps to Success channel then click on “View Unofficial Transcripts." Those who need Cuesta College records prior to 1984 must order official transcripts. Students may view unofficial transcript online as long as the student does not have a debt, including the present term's registration fees or have a hold or other obligation.
