Districts vary in policy regarding whether or not they require embossed transcripts, and districts have different turn-in dates for salary advancement.

It is your responsibility to know your own district’s policies regarding dates you must submit grade reports for salary advancement and regarding their policy in accepting grade reports vs. formal transcripts. Please contact your personnel department for information.

Grades and Transcripts:

Important: Should you have any questions about your grade or transcripts, please contact our Courses4Teachers office directly. Do NOT contact the University of the Pacific main campus as these registrations and grades are handled from this office. Our email is courses4teachers@courses4teachers.net

Procedure regarding processing and obtaining grades/transcripts:

After you receive your registration and documentation, you will receive an email from our Danville office within 5 business days. That email will be verification that the processing of your grade(s) has begun. Your grade(s) will go through many channels before it is finally posted with the Registrar. This process typically takes 6 – 8 weeks. As soon as your grade is posted with the Registrar you will receive an Unofficial Transcript in the mail, directly from the University of the Pacific Registrar. Some school districts may accept the letter emailed from our office stating your grade is being processed for immediate professional growth and salary increment credit. However, most school districts request the unofficial transcript from the Registrar, and some may request an embossed, sealed Official Transcript.
