Transcript Overview

We maintain records for more than one million individuals who have attended Los Angeles Harbor College. The academic record for current student, former, and/or graduated students is called a transcript. A transcript is a duly certified record of all work completed at Los Angeles Harbor College and all other LACCD campuses. Los Angeles Harbor College has retained National Student Clearinghouse to accept transcript orders on the Internet via a secured site.  This will eliminate the need to come to campus.

Student academic records are classified as confidential and may be released only to the student with student's written authorization and signature, in accordance with the Public Information Act and the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

Types of Transcripts:

Unofficial Transcript

 An unofficial transcript is a comprehensive record of a student's academic progress, including transfer courses; credit earned by exam, and earned degrees. Unofficial transcripts cannot be released to a third party. Although the unofficial transcript lists all of a student's coursework it does not include the college seal or signature of the registrar.

This type of transcript can be used for counseling purposes for future schools/universities review or for person use.

Unofficial transcripts are free and can be printed from your printer by logging into MYCollege.laccd

Official Transcript

An official transcript is the College's certified statement of your academic record. The record includes transfer courses; credit earned by exam, and earned degrees.  The official paper transcript is printed on security sensitive paper and contains the College's seal and signature of the Registrar. The official electronic transcript is a PDF secured by a digital certificate, which is displayed at the top of the transcript along with a blue ribbon. Official Transcript Requests 

What if I need someone to pick up my transcript?

A student may authorize a third party (Proxy) to pick up a transcript by using our proxy authorization form.  For pick up by proxy, the signed proxy request form must accompany the pick up.  The Proxy must present his or her own valid student photo ID, state-issued ID or driver's license, current passport, or military ID for transcript release.

Note:  Information provided on proxy form will be followed exactly; changes after form is submitted will require a new form.

Processing Times

LAHC provides two processing times for an official transcript. A regular transcript is processed within 5-7 business days. A rush transcript is processed within 1 business days. An on demand transcript is produced at the time of request.

The Requests for a General Education Certificate will extended the processing time an additional 7-14 business days. There is NO rush service or same-day service offered for General Education Certification. Students who do not know if they should request a General Education Certificate should consult a counselor or their receiving institution.

Requesting Official Transcript

Los Angeles Harbor College has appointed the National Clearinghouse as the designated agent for requesting official electronic and hard copy transcripts on behalf of LAHC. You can request official transcripts directly through MyCollege.laccd or through the National Student Clearinghouse.

Official printed transcripts are produce by the college and made available for pick up or traditional US postal mail. Electronic Transcripts are delivered using e-Transcript California  and or the National Student Clearinghouse.

The PDF transcript that is produced using e-Transcript California or the National Student Clearinghouse service contains the identical information as the printed transcript and can be certified as unaltered by uploading the file to the company's website that is provided during the delivery process. Check the links below to verify your receiving institution is a partner with e-Transcript California or the National Student Clearinghouse.

Both entities have been granted the authority to deliver all either type of transcript requests on behalf of the College. You can order official transcripts anytime, 24 hours a day.

**NOTE: Transcripts will not be released until all financial obligations to the District have been paid and any outstanding holds have been cleared. Students should verify that all final grades, grades changes, and degrees have posted by viewing their unofficial transcripts on MyPortal before placing their order. The Admissions and Records Office has no control of when semester grades are posted. The posting of grades is controlled by professors ONLY.
