Teachers requesting transcripts for salary increment should note the Special Instructions and review the processing outline to ensure timely receipt of transcripts. Your transcript shows CSU, Chico work for courses numbered 001-899. Courses numbered 800-899 do not apply towards a degree unless approved by the appropriate department. Successful completion of an 800 level course will appear on the transcript with a CR or Letter grade and a value in the attempted field that may not be reflected in the earned field or the summary totals. Credit/No Credit Grading: If you plan to transfer to graduate or professional schools, be aware that some schools in evaluating transfer credit may regard Credit (CR) grades as C's and No Credit (NC) grades as F's.

Late Requests

Late requests are subject to the approval from the CTA office, Instructor of Record, CSU, Chico department chair, and college dean which requires a serious & compelling reason. A late fee will also apply. Complete our online request form. ** Please note, there is a 1-year time limit for late requests. Late requests are not accepted for the CTA Summer Pass program.


Refunds are only granted if your request to Regional & Continuing Education is prior to the day of the conference. No refund is granted after the conference has begun.


* These courses are designed to meet objectives not served by established graduate and undergraduate courses. However, in exceptional cases and with the approval of the appropriate department chair and the dean of your school, they may be applied toward degree and credential programs for which such courses are deemed acceptable. Determination of the acceptability of these courses for degree and credential credit will depend primarily upon course content and approach. If you are considering using these courses for credential or degree purposes, consult with the appropriate department before registering.
