Official Transcript Information
A transcript is a copy of a student's permanent academic record at Columbia Gorge Community College (CGCC) including all courses taken, all grades received, and all degrees and certificates conferred. To be considered official, most colleges, universities, and employers require transcripts to be submitted in the original sealed envelope or via an electronic transfer system compatible with both schools.
Official transcripts from CGCC
***CGCC has a new student portal. At this time students needing to request their official transcripts will need to complete a "Transript Request Form". You will find the "Transcript Request Form" on our Website under "Student Forms". The completed form MUST be signed by the student if sent from a personal email. If the form is uploaded to your student portal then a signature is not required.
Currently attending students: To order your official CGCC transcript please login to MyCGCC and click on "Request Official Transcript" under "Additional Resources." The form may be faxed, emailed, mailed or placed in the document drop box outside of Building 3 at The Dalles Campus or the book drop outside the Hood River building. If you are unable to access your account, please call (541) 506-6011 option 2 for assistance.
*Former Students: You will find the "Transcript Request Form" on our Website under "Student Forms". The completed form MUST be signed by the student if sent from a personal email.
There is no fee for ordering official transcripts, unless the student requests rush handling.
Requests are processed in the order received.
It may take up to 10 business days to process regular requests.
Please allow additional time during peak periods, such as the start of registration, final grade posting and degree posting.
All official transcripts are MAILED. At this time CGCC does not have the capability to email official transcripts.
Financial Holds: If a student has a Financial Hold on their account we will be unable to process your transcript request until the account balance has been Paid In Full.
To see how credits may transfer to other schools, please see CGCC's information on transferring to a 4-year college or university.
*NOTICE Prior to Fall 2013: Please be aware that as of Fall 2013, CGCC obtained independent accreditation and is no longer connected to Portland Community College (PCC). Classes taken prior to Fall 2013 will be recorded at PCC, and official transcripts for that time period may need to be ordered from PCC. Classes taken at CGCC through PCC during that time period will appear on CGCC official transcripts as transfer credit.
