Final Grades

Once you have completed your spring courses at NYU, you may view your final grades via Albert by going to the Student Center and selecting "Grades" from the drop down menu. More detailed instructed can be found on the University Registrar's "Viewing Grades" tutorial guide.

Please allow 2-3 weeks for your final grades to be posted on Albert. If you have not received your grades at that point, please reach out to your individual faculty members to inquire as to when they plan to post final grades on Albert.

Requesting Official Transcripts

Academic transcripts are not automatically sent out at the end of the semester. If you would like an academic transcript to be sent to you or your home institution, you can request one by signing into Albert and going to the Student Center. From the drop down menu, select "Transcript-Official." Transcripts can be requested at any time. More detailed instructions can be found on the University Registrar's website.

Please wait until all of your grades from your spring semester courses are appearing on Albert before you request a transcript.

Reminder: Complete the Spring in New York Exit Survey!

To help us evaluate the Spring in New York program, we ask each of you to complete the Spring in New York Survey online. The survey helps us learn more about your experience at NYU this term and identify ways we can make Spring in New York even better for students. We want to hear from you! Students who complete the survey will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a new Kindle Fire! The survey should take no more than ten minutes to complete.

Responses are anonymous, so please be honest and provide us with as much feedback as you would like.
