Official Transcript Request Form

Transcript requests must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar, through the form linked above. A $15 fee is payable to NewSchool through the Bursar’s Office. Payments may be made using cash, check, or a major credit card.

Releasing Transcripts

In accordance with California State Law, NewSchool no longer holds official or unofficial transcripts for students that owe an outstanding balance or have outstanding library fees owed to the institution. However, the final grades for the last quarter attended will be changed to UP for Unpaid when a balance is owed to the institution on the official transcripts. Grades of UP will count as neither attempted nor earned credits and will not be calculated in the student’s GPA.

Unofficial Transcripts

Students are able to obtain a free unofficial copy of their transcripts from their student portal.
