We understand that the ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 have created significant interruptions to many students' education, and prolonged school closures may result in a delay in final transcripts or examination results being available. In an effort to be as accommodating as possible, we have extended our final transcript deadline to August 1 for the Class of 2024.
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.
Starting with the incoming class of 2024, NYU will require that all final documents for students from high schools outside of the United States be sent directly to our partner, Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE)**. There is no fee associated with sending materials to ECE, and all documents will be reviewed for authenticity and shared with NYU upon completion. If you are admitted and choose to enroll at NYU, instructions will be sent regarding how to submit your documentation to ECE.
**Documents sent through an official electronic source, including A-levels submitted by Cambridge International Examinations as well as the IB, are not required to be sent to ECE. All transcripts from high schools not located in the United States must be submitted through ECE.
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 email@example.com but should still bear an official stamp, must come from a school official, and must be sent from an official school email address.
