 The federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 identifies the rights of students and their families with respect to student educational records kept by institutions. The following information provides operational procedures for certain aspects of FERPA-related policies at Golden Gate University.


 Most students can register for most courses online via the myGGU portal.

  • Registration for an academic period begins approximately seven weeks before the start of the "A" (trimester) term, per the Academic Calendar.
  • Students may be allowed to add courses after the "Last Day to Register/Add Course" per the Academic Calendar, by completing the Late Registration Process. The process requires submission of the following to the Registrar's Office:
    • Approval of the course instructor
    • Approval of a senior administrator of the school offering the course, such as the dean, program director, or department chair
    • Payment of the $100 Late Registration Fee

Golden Gate University has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the Web. You can order your transcript using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed.

  • To order an official transcript(s), go to the Clearinghouse Transcript Ordering Center site. You can also track your transcript order via the Clearinghouse Transcript Order Status page. In addition, you can choose to receive email and/or text communications regarding your order status.
  • If you have a GGU4YOU account, you can start the ordering process from the GGU4YOU "Student" menu in order to avoid having to submit the consent form to the Clearinghouse.
  • The Clearinghouse website will walk you through placing your order, including delivery options and fees. There is a fee of $10 per transcript copy and a processing fee of $2.50 per recipient. You can order as many transcripts as you wish in a single order, provided they are all sent to the same recipient. NOTE: While the shelter-in-place order is in effect for the City of San Francisco, the additional PDF delivery method fee of $1.75 is being waived. In addition, rush service and express delivery are not available.
  • Attention Law School JD students: If you are seeking to transfer to another law school and will also need a letter of good standing with your class rank, you should request the letter via the transcript request form as instructed on the Clearinghouse Transcript Ordering Center site.
  • Download our Transcript Ordering Fast Facts for general transcript ordering information.
  • If you need to change your legal name-of-record before ordering a transcript, submit the Student Information Change Request form.
