Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update as of 03/25/20:
For the safety and well-being of our community, OCC is temporarily closed until further notice.
As such, we are unable to produce paper transcripts during this time. During the closure, students are also unable to drop-off and pick-up transcripts in person.
As much as possible we encourage students to utilize electronic PDF transcripts when ordering and submitting official transcripts to us. Official PDF transcripts can be sent to yourself or directly to the receiving college/university. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Once we can resume our normal operations, we will be happy to process paper transcript requests and/or provide letters for submission to any institution or third-party that had a deadline that was not met.
Again, we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and we hope to resume normal operating procedures soon. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
Submitting Official Transcripts:
Students who have completed classes at another accredited College or University, and wish to submit the transcripts for prerequisite clearance or for meeting degree/certificate requirements, may send Official transcripts to:
ORANGE COAST COLLEGE
ATTN: ENROLLMENT CENTER
P O BOX 5005
COSTA MESA CA 92628-5005.
Or if the sending institution sends official transcripts electronically via PDF, electronic transcripts can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. The transcripts must be sent directly from the sending institutions authorized agent. OCC will not accept forwarded transcripts from the student.
Or you may submit official transcripts in person to the Enrollment Services window, located on the first floor of Watson Hall. All other departments requesting official transcripts to be on file will have access to view your official transcripts once you have turned them into Enrollment Services. Currently, official transcripts take about 6 weeks to be evaluated (12 weeks for out-of-state and 4-year institutions).
Ordering OCC Transcripts:
Note: Grades for the current semester will be available approximately 3 to 5 weeks after the last day of the term (3 weeks for spring & summer terms and 5 weeks for fall terms). If you are enrolled in the current semester and want your transcript to include those course grades, you can pre-order your transcript a few weeks before the semester ends. Mark your request "after final grades are posted" and once grades are in the system, your request will be processed in the order it was received. OCC does not accept Special Handling (Rush) requests for "End of Semester Transcripts"
Official transcripts must be ordered online through Credentials Inc. OCC does not accept transcript orders through the mail. Students on campus will have access to computers for online ordering in Watson Hall, the Computing Center and the Library. Orange Coast College does not offer same day transcript service.
