New York University requires all admitted students to present proof of high school graduation before enrolling at NYU. Admitted students must provide the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with such proof of graduation by July 1 of the year they plan to enroll.
International Students: An extension will be granted to students outside the United States whose secondary schools operate on a different schedule. You will not be penalized for the late receipt of your graduation certificate or final report from your high school. Students who are submitting final exam results as proof of graduation should ensure that these results are sent to us as soon as they have been released, and provide official certificates as soon as these are available. You can refer to NYU's International Qualifications Tool for more information about what documentation is required.
Please note that if documents are not in English, an English translation should be provided, one which is issued either by a school official or by a translation agency accredited in the educational institution's country.
In all cases, proof of graduation must be provided prior to beginning the first semester of classes at NYU. NYU considers the following documents to serve as proof of secondary school graduation:
Final transcripts may be submitted by a school official through the Common Application website. All mailed transcripts and other proof of graduation documents, however, should bear an official stamp, be signed and mailed from a student's school in a sealed envelope to: New York University Office of Undergraduate Admissions, 383 Lafayette Street, New York, NY 10003, USA. Documents may also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org but should still bear an official stamp, must come from a school official, and must be sent from an official school email address.
