Official Transcript Requirements

Admitted students are required to hold a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in the United States or an equivalent degree from a foreign country. 


Admitted students are required to provide official transcripts from all completed college degree programs. These transcripts can be submitted either digitally or as hard copies. However, we strongly advise submitting official transcripts digitally to expedite processing. All documentation must be sent directly to NYU Wagner from the degree-granting institution or an approved third-party vendor, such as eSCRIP-SAFE, Parchment, or National Student Clearinghouse.

Digital transcripts: Submit official transcripts electronically through delivery services such as Parchment, eScripts, National Student Clearinghouse, etc. Alternatively, if your university offers official e-transcripts, please have them sent directly to

  • Official electronic transcripts that are first delivered to a student, then forwarded to Wagner Admissions, are not considered official.

Physical transcripts: If a student possesses an official, hard copy transcript still in the original, sealed envelope, that unopened document may be mailed to NYU Wagner:

  • NYU Wagner Admissions
    105 E 17th Street
    New York, New York 10003

Each transcript should contain a list of coursework, grades or marks earned, degree earned, and date of degree conferral. 

Documentation 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. 

Information for Students Completing Their Final Undergraduate Term

Students completing their final term of their undergraduate degree should submit a final transcript – with proof of degree conferral – as soon as their degree conferral has been posted to the transcript and no later than three weeks prior to the start of their first term.

Information for Dual Degree and Current/Former NYU Students

Dual graduate degree students must submit final transcripts to both NYU schools.

Current and former NYU students do not need to order official transcripts for their previous NYU degree(s). Please contact the Office of Admissions if you have questions.

Information for International Students

If an original transcript is not in English, newly admitted students are required to submit both the official transcript and its English translation. If the institution attended does not provide an English translation with the official transcript, a certified English translation through a translating service should be obtained and submitted. All translations should be complete and literal renditions of the original record.

International credential evaluations from NACES approved agencies are acceptable and satisfy NYU Wagner's official transcript requirements when the following conditions are met:

  • Wagner has received an official report directly from the vendor; and,
  • the report includes copies of official documents sent by the institution.

If necessary, you may contact the Office of Admissions to confirm whether a specific credential evaluation meets the requirements.

Records issued only once by institutions may be photocopied and certified as official copies either by school officials or legal authorities (embassy or institution's country consulates). In some circumstances, official documents may be presented at NYU Wagner. Please do not send the original of an academic record that cannot be replaced.
