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.

  • It usually takes about 1-2 business days to process the request.
  • Please allow additional time during peak periods, such as the start of registration, final grade posting and degree posting.

Foreign Transcripts

To receive transfer credit for courses taken in a foreign country, you need to have the transcripts and any available course descriptions translated into English and evaluated.

Most transfer credits accepted from foreign institutions will be used as electives. If course descriptions are supplied and content is clear, the credit may be used to meet other requirements. All decisions made by the Student Records office are final.

  • Have your transcript(s) and course descriptions translated into English. A fee (approx. $65+) is required for this service. (See list of local translation services below.)
  • Have your translated transcript(s) and course descriptions evaluated, following the appropriate instructions below.

Evaluation Services and Steps
