How Do I?
Grades are available on ecampus as they are entered and posted. However, they cannot be viewed by a student until the student has completed and submitted a course evaluation during the week prior to finals. If a student has not submitted a course evaluation during that time period they will be unable to view their assigned grade for that course until the week following finals. The faculty deadline to submit final grades is five calendar days after the last exam.
Log on to ecampus. In your student center, located just below "Academic History" is a "Grades" link. Clicking on it will navigate you to a screen which requires you to choose a term. After clicking on a specific term you will be shown a listing of your courses taken for that quarter with each assigned grade. You can print an unofficial copy of the grades for your record. If you need a transcript, please go to Request a Transcript.
Students admitted to degree status at Santa Clara may audit one course in addition to their regular course load in a term. A maximum of three courses may be audited during a student's academic career. Permission to audit a course will be given only at the end of the late registration period and only if space is available in the class. No credit is assigned for an audited course, but the successful completion of an audit will be indicated on a student's transcript by the notation "AUD."

All current SCU students and alumni may order copies of their official transcript online. SCU offers both electronic transcripts ($3.00 per transcript) as well as paper transcripts ($3.00 per transcript + postage) via Parchment Credential Services. Documents, such as cover letters, resumes, and enrollment verifications, can be sent as an attachment to your transcript order. Requests can be made online 24/7, and students and alumni will have access to real-time, end-to-end tracking that shows when the transcript request was fulfilled and when it is received. Average transcript delivery for electronic transcripts for students with an eCampus ID will be within hours of the request.
Please note that your transcript will not be produced if you have a hold on your academic record restricting transcript access (in eCampus, go to your student record to find out details on the hold, and instructions on how to clear the hold). The hold will need to be cleared before you can successfully request an official transcript. Requests made by phone or email will not be accepted.
How to Order an Official Transcript: 1) If you have been in attendance at SCU at any time since fall term 2002, you can request a transcript by logging into eCampus: https://www.scu.edu/ecampus (once in eCampus, click on Academics, then Transcripts and Verification, then Request Official Transcript)

2) If you attended SCU at any point prior to fall 2002, you must register directly via the Parchment Transcript Self-Registration Site (allow 10-15 working days for transcript requests on records prior to 1993). Once your student status is verified, an email will be sent to you with instructions on requesting either an electronic or paper official transcript through SCU's third party vendor, Parchment Credential Services.
If you have difficulties requesting an official transcript, or have any questions/issues with ordering through Parchment Services, then please contact SCU's Office of the Registrar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
