My graduate/professional school/employer needs verification that I've graduated from UCSD. How can I speed up the process?

Normal processing time to finalize a degree is 2 to 3 months after all course grades are posted. The Registrar's Office can provide priority posting of a degree for students who require faster processing of the degree for a valid reason. You must file a priority posting form at the Academic Advising Office. When all work required for your degree has been received by our office and your Major Department has approved the completion of your major requirements, the request for priority posting will be approved by the Advising Office and forwarded to the Registrar's Office for processing. It will take the Registrar's Office 2-3 weeks to review and post your degree on your transcript.
