Image and video hosting by TinyPicAll transcripts must be accompanied by proof of degree conferral. The degree conferral must indicate the:

  1. type of degree conferred
  2. month and year the degree was conferred
  3. institution and location from which you received the degree

If degree conferral information is reflected on your transcript, then you do not need to provide additional degree conferral documentation. Please confirm this with the institution attended.

Please note that documents showing completion of a curriculum or courses are not sufficient on a standalone basis. 

Official transcripts should be sent directly from your degree-granting instituion. Original documents sent to you from your degree-granting institution are acceptable and considered official if they include a stamp, seal, and/or embossed marking. They must also be delivered to the NYU Wagner Admissions in the original sealed envelope bearing the insitution's stamp or seal. We do not accept copies, opened or unsealed envelopes, unofficial printouts, or facismilies. 

If an institution cannot issue you a transcript, you must submit a formal letter to the NYU Wagner Graduate Admissions Committee in a sealed envelope from the institution stating its policy. Please email us at wagner.admissions@nyu.edu if this is the case. 

All transcripts submitted are considered property of NYU Wagner. They will not be returned to you, transferred, or forwarded to other institutions or other schools at NYU. Please do not submit an original copy of an academic transcript that cannot be replaced. 

Your official transcripts and degree conferrals will be verified upon receipt. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission, at any time prior to or after enrolling, if degree conferral is not sufficiently proven.


If an original transcript is not in English, newly admitted students are required to submit both the official transcript and its English translation. Both the official transcript and the translation should be submitted in one sealed envelope. 

If the institution attended does not provide an English translation with the official transcript, a certified English translation through a translating service must be obtained and submitted in a sealed envelope, endorsed across the seal by the embassy or consulate of the institution's country. NYU Wagner has no preferred translating services. All translations should be complete and literal renditions of the original record. Records should contain the following information:

World Education Services International Credential Package (WES ICAP) and WES evaluation reports that include official documents sent directly by the institution are acceptable and do meet NYU Wagner's proof of degree conferral policy only if they include all final grades and proof of degree conferral. 

Records issued only once by institutions should be photocopied and certified as official copies either by school officials or legal authorities (embassy or institution's country consulates). These documents should be sent to us in a sealed (unopened), stamped envelope. Please do not send the original of an academic record that cannot be replaced.


Students completing their final term of their undergraduate degree must sumbit a final transcript with proof of degree conferral immediately upon graduating and no later than July 15. Your student record will be activated only upon receipt of your final transcript and proof of degree conferral. Once we receive this information, your record will be activated and you may register for classes. Please do not send transcripts until your degree conferral has been posted to the transcript.  If you are uncertain if degree conferral has been posted, please contact your degree-granting institution.
