Once you have officially accepted your admission, you must request that all final, official transcripts be sent directly from your post-secondary institutions to Office of Graduate Admissions, NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Please verify that the transcript shows all work completed, degree conferred and the date that the degree was conferred or awarded. Candidates accepted to a Ph.D. program will need to provide a final, official master’s degree transcript in addition to the undergraduate degree transcript.
Note to NYU graduates: If you have graduated from any school at New York University, you do not need to send us transcripts. Our office will retrieve the final transcripts internally through the Registrar’s Office.
THE TRANSCRIPT(S) MUST COME DIRECTLY FROM YOUR SCHOOL TO OUR OFFICE
Paper transcripts should be mailed to:
Office of Graduate Admissions
NYU Tisch School of the Arts
726 Broadway, 2nd Floor
New York, NY 10003
Official transcripts sent by mail must bear the seal of the institution and an original signature of the registrar or embossed stamp.
Can be sent directly from the school to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through a secure third-party provider such as eSCRIP-SAFE, Parchment Send, or the National Student Clearinghouse.
Documents in a language other than English
We need both the transcript in its original language and an English translation of the transcript. If your institution does not issue documents in English, you must have the transcripts translated by a professional translation service. Self-translations and notarized translations will not be accepted.
If the date of degree conferral is not included in the final transcript, a certified, true copy of your diploma or certificate of degree completion showing the date the degree was conferred will also be required with your official transcript.
Note - Some international schools issue only one official transcript. If this is the case for the school(s) you attended, DO NOT send this document to us because no materials submitted in support of an application will be returned to you. Instead, send an exact copy that has been stamped as a “Certified True Copy” by the appropriate institutional official of each institution that you attended. Uncertified copies are not acceptable.
Final Transcript Is Not Yet Available
If you completed your degree very recently or are still enrolled in a degree program, your final, official transcript may not be available. You need to ask your educational institution to send the most up-to-date transcript as soon as possible. Once the final transcript with the degree conferral date becomes available, request that it be sent as well.
If your transcripts cannot be sent due to valid extenuating circumstances, please contact the graduate admissions office at email@example.com or (212) 998-1900.
*If we do not receive a final and official transcript showing conferral of your bachelor’s degree, a hold will be placed on your account and you will not be able to register for courses in the fall.
**Transcripts sent by you in an unsealed envelope or by email as an attachment are not considered official and will not be accepted.
