Submit Official Scores/Transcripts

If you have already received a qualifying score or passed a qualifying course:

After you have accepted your offer of admission, you must submit your official scores/college transcripts in order to fulfill the ELWR. Self-reported scores alone cannot fulfill the requirement.

  • SAT, ACT, AP, or IB scores: Arrange for the testing agency to send the official test scores* to UC San Diego by July 15. (Double check for the name of the university; many students have mistakenly sent scores to University of San Diego.) 
  • Final college transcripts: Arrange for the community college to send the official, final transcript** to UC San Diego by July 1. e-Transcripts are accepted via the Electronic Exchange (ETX) vendors such as Parchment. Or send to:
UC San Diego Admissions
Attn: Transcripts
9500 Gilman Drive, MC0021
La Jolla, CA  92093-0021 (for Certree)

After two to three weeks, go to Enrollment Checklist to see if your official scores appear in your view. It will take longer to verify and post your college courses to your records. 

*Test scores submitted prior to 2020 must be resent. 

**High school transcripts displaying college composition courses will not be accepted. You must submit the official final college transcript in order to fulfill the ELWR. 

If you expect to receive your test scores or complete a course later in summer:

Send the official scores/college transcript to UC San Diego as soon as they are available. 

If your official scores or courses do not display in Enrollment Checklist more than two weeks after requesting them:

Your scores may not be matched to your UC application because of inconsistent student identification.
