Certificates & Transcripts

If you have passed the CHSPE, you may order an official transcript or a duplicate Certificate of Proficiency. A transcript is an official letter that certifies that you have passed the test. Examinees who began testing after January 1, 2007 will receive a score report as part of their transcript. Some employers and schools require these transcripts. Transcripts and duplicate Certificates of Proficiency will be available after you pass the CHSPE and receive your official documents.

To order a duplicate Certificate of Proficiency or one or more transcripts, you must complete and submit to the CHSPE Office a Certificate/Transcript Order Form (PDF - 129KB - 1p). The form and directions for completing it are available in your user portal. You must sign the form and mail it to the CHSPE Office along with the appropriate fee. An original signature is required. A transcript or duplicate Certificate of Proficiency will not be provided if your CHSPE account is not paid in full.

The items you request will be mailed via first-class mail within 10 business days of receipt of your request. For an additional fee, the items you request will be sent via overnight mail to any location within the continental United States within three business days following receipt of your request (rush service). The fees for these services are listed below and must be paid by bank-issued cashier’s check or a money order payable to California Department of Education.
