SMCCCD has enlisted the help of Parchment to manage student records. Parchment will now provide your transcript ordering, printing, and delivery service. Their TranscriptPlus feature will allow students to request transcripts at any time, on any day of the week.

On behalf of SMCCCD, Parchment will have the authority to fulfill all electronic transcript requests and respond to related inquiries. All PDF transcripts produced through the electronic transcript process are identical to paper transcripts. These PDFs can be certified as unaltered by visiting the website provided during the delivery process.

Official transcripts will be sent to employers, colleges and other institutions upon a student submitting an online transcript request via WebSMART. Most requests are generally processed within one business day from date received. Courses taken at Cañada College, CSM, and/or Skyline appear on the college transcript and transfer courses evaluated through TES. Transcripts from high schools and other colleges will not be forwarded. The first two transcripts requested within SMCCCD are free. Each additional transcript costs $5.00. Official transcripts mailed directly to the student from Parchment may only be opened by the receiving institution.

Transcript Evaluation Service (TES)

Transcript Evaluation Service (TES) provides students at Cañada College, College of San Mateo and Skyline College an official evaluation of coursework completed at colleges and universities outside our district. TES will determine how this coursework will be applied to your program of study, associate general education, CSU general education and IGETC requirements.   
All students who have indicated that they attended an outside institution on CCCApply and completed matriculation will receive a Transcript Evaluation Success Plan in Student Success Link. To view your success plan and check for updates, please log into mySMCCCD Student Portal and select “Student Success Link”. Our department will send students updates to your account regarding your evaluation status and any information we may need.
