How do I order a copy of my official CSI transcript?

Ordering your official CSI transcript is easy.

    • Go to https://www.studentclearinghouse.org/secure_area/Transcript/login.asp?FICEcode=00161900 .
    • Click on “Order or Track a Transcript”, and click submit.
    • Select The College of Southern Idaho from the drop down menu and click submit again.
    • You will be asked to enter your personal information (including social security number or student ID), the address you would like the transcript sent to, your processing preference, and payment information. We recommend using the paperless option and signing the request with an electronic signature- there is no need for printing or faxing!

We will process your request and send your transcript within 1-3 business days (unless a rush order is specified). Ordering online only takes about 5 minutes, and is the easiest and most efficient way to request!

I am a transfer student. Have you received my transcript?

When we receive your high school transcript, you will receive a confirmation email. The date received and GPA will be recorded in your record. Be sure to send a final transcript when all your high school classes are completed, and your graduation date is listed. College transcripts are evaluated upon receipt, and a graduation audit will be mailed to you. The audit shows the credits we applied toward your CSI degree, and indicates outstanding requirements you need to complete. The graduation audit can be viewed and reviewed through MYCSI:

    • Log into MyCSIDescription: mycsi.gif
    • Click on “Records and Registration”
    • From the menu “My Documents” on the left, select the document you would like to view or print.

*Please note your transfer credits will always follow CSI coursework on the transcript.

How do I get a PIN?

After you receive your CSI student identification number, visit: http://www.csi.edu/currentStudents_/mycsi/index.html to retrieve your PIN number. For detailed information and instructions, see: http://www.csi.edu/eagleone/index.asp.

Can I attend if I have not graduated from high school?

It is recommended that students graduate high school before attending CSI. Students who intend to earn a degree from CSI must have completed high school or equivalent (GED or HSE) or be 19 years of age or older at the time of enrollment. CSI offers GED courses and exams on site. See http://www.csi.edu/ip/adc/adult/ for information. Be sure to have your final high school or GED/HSE transcripts sent to CSI once you have completed your studies.
Students 18 years of age and younger may qualify for Ability to Benefit, which allows admission as a degree-seeking student. COMPASS placement scores indicating preparedness for college level math and English are required.

How can I get proof of attendance for health insurance, vehicle insurance, “Good Student Discount”, housing, etc?

You can access The National Student Clearinghouse for free. Simply go to www.csi.edu, login into MYCSI, then select “Records and Registration” from the menu at the top of the screen. Click on “Student Self-Service” and select the appropriate option (Enrollment verification, Good Student Discount Certificate, deferment information, transcript orders, etc). You will be able to print the certificate to give to your service providers. It is a time stamped, legal document.
CSI provides the current semester’s enrollment information to the Clearinghouse approximately 2 weeks prior to the semester start date. The information is subject to change due to the student’s right to adjust his/her schedule according to CSI’s add/drop and withdrawal policies.

How do I become a resident of Idaho (to pay in-state tuition)?

A student enrolling into the College of Southern Idaho shall not be deemed a resident of the community college district, or of a county, or of the State of Idaho, unless the student established domicile primarily for purposes other than education within said district, county, or the State, for at least twelve (12) months continuously prior to the beginning of the term for which the student enrolls.

If you think you qualify to become an Idaho resident, you will need to request a redetermination of residency. The redetermination form is available in the Admissions & Records Office. The completed form needs to be submitted with 2 legal proofs of domicile in Idaho for at least 12 months prior to the beginning of the first term of enrollment. The acceptable documents are listed on the form. For more detailed information, please see: http://www.csi.edu/prospectiveStudents_/studentServices/residency/ or Page 26-27 of the 2011-2012 College of Southern Idaho Catalog.
