Licensure Process

California

  • Please review the Applying for Licensure Workshop PTBC slides from February 2022 and visit the PTBC website for more details
  • If you are graduating Spring 2022, the graduation date/degree conferral date that will appear on your transcript will be June 12, 2022. If you are graduating Summer 2022, the graduation date/degree conferral date that will appear on your transcript will be September 7, 2022. Please use this date to complete the form.
  • How are P1E forms submitted? After you complete your clinical and all requirements (EXXAT and CLE assignments) have been graded, your course director and director of clinical education will notify the Student Affairs Officer that you have been approved for graduation. The Student Affairs Officer will complete the P1E form and submit it to the PTBC. It is not an instantaneous process, but we try to work swiftly and accurately!
  • What can you do to ensure that your P1E form is submitted in a timely manner? Make sure all of your clinical requirements are completed and submitted on time.

Out-of-State

  • If you are applying for licensure outside of California, please check those requirements. For any forms that require a department or registrar signature, complete the personal information section and notify the Student Affairs Officer. Check with those boards to see if they have an electronic submission process (many have allowed us to email forms in this past year, which can be faster). The Student Affairs Officers will complete the rest of the form and submit it.

Transcripts & Diplomas

How to obtain your transcript

  • For UCSF, you can order your transcript through the student portal. Please refer to the UCSF Registrar site for instructions.
  • For SFSU, please refer to the SFSU Registrar site for instructions on ordering your transcript.

How to obtain your diploma

Diplomas are available eight to twelve weeks after you graduate. You can pick up your diploma in person, or it can be mailed to you. Please refer to the UCSF Registrar site for more information.

Managing Accounts after Graduation

Access to most electronic services will end six months after your graduation date. The graduation date is the last day of the term in which you receive your degree.

UCSF Email Account

Email forwarding is not available. To prepare for your @ucsf.edu email account closure, take the following steps soon after your graduation date:

Save (archive) email messages from your @ucsf.edu email account.

  • If you haven't already, set up Microsoft Outlook.
  • Archive messages using Outlook.
  • You can also use other email applications such as Apple Mail and Mozilla Thunderbird to archive email. After connecting, confirm that your messages are copied to your computer.

Set up another email account if you do not already have a non-UCSF email account for personal use.

  • Update accounts on websites where you use your email address as your login.
  • Pay attention to which email you are using when applying to jobs or networking. Your @ucsf.edu email will be closed six months after your graduation date.

Request a UCSF alumni email forwarding address or account.

Notify appropriate parties that your @ucsf.edu email address will no longer be available and give them the email address you would like them to use instead.

UCSF Student Portal Access

Alumni whose UCSF student record includes their Gmail account can use their Google credentials to log in to the student portal. If interested in this option, ensure your Gmail address is listed in your student record as your personal e-mail address. In addition, before graduating, you should ensure that you have access to the telephone number associated with your local (mailing) address, as this telephone number will be used during the login process for two-factor authentication. Read more about the Google login process.
