Requesting Transcript Evaluation

The process of transcript evaluation is not automatic. When transcripts are received, they are only reviewed for English and Math in order to clear prerequisites. In order to have a transcript officially evaluated please follow the steps below.

Important notes before beginning this process:

Transcript Evaluations are take about 18 weeks. This means an evaluation request should be submitted within the first semester that you attend in order to ensure an accurate education plan, financial aid, and timely graduation.

Transcript Evaluations DO NOT take place on college campuses. All evaluation requests are sent to the District from all of our campuses, San Diego Miramar, Mesa, and City College. 

It is highly recommended that students speak with Counseling prior to submitting an evaluation request as any changes to an Education Pattern will require that the process begin again and missing information can cause cancellations.

Steps for Requesting a Transcript Evaluation

  1. Submit all previous Transcripts, AP Scores, IB Scores, CLEP or DD-214 forms (See Veterans Affairs for details) to SDCCD.
  2. Confirm that the district has posted the transcript as "received" by emailing miracoundesk@sdccd.edu or calling (619) 388-7840. (DO NOT submit a request prior to verifying receipt).
    1. AP/CLEP/IB Scores take about 2 weeks to be delivered. Electronic Transcripts are generally posted as received within 1 week of sending, for Physical Transcripts expect 2-3 weeks for posting.
  3. Once confirmed, visit the Online Submission Page. Scroll to Counseling/Evaluation/Graduation Forms and respond to the Yes or No question to reveal the clickable forms.
