Name Changes:

Official transcripts are issued with the current name we have on file. If you would like your new name to appear on your transcript, please submit a Name Change Request Form to the Registrar’s office with supporting documents (as listed on the form). Once your name is changed, all subsequent transcripts ordered will display both former and current names.

Password Help:

If you do not have an SF State password you can request one using the SF State password service. A part of setting up your SF State password is to select six security questions and answers that will be used if you need to reset your SF State password.

If you are unable to use the online SF State password service you can request a password reset by fax. To request a password reset, fax the following items to the Registrar’s Office at (415) 338-0588:

  • Copy of your government issued photo ID with signature
    (e.g. driver's license, state ID, passport)
  • SF State ID number
  • E-mail address
  • Your signature

Faxed password reset requests can take up to two business days to process.
