Admission Document Requirements

Official Transcripts and Proof of Degree

All admitted students are required to submit official transcripts for all years of study (including your final semester/term), along with a proof of degree, graduation certificate, or diploma prior to the start of their first semester.

What are "official documents"?

Documents are considered official when they are requested directly from your university’s registrar’s office and sent to NYU Tandon admissions (see instructions below). Documents must be original, watermarked, and have an embossed seal from the institution on diplomas. Sealed photocopies of original documents, attested by the degree granting institution (autonomous college), can also be accepted. Documents will not be considered official if they are opened, copied or scanned by the student. We do not accept credential evaluations such as WES or ECE. Translations are also required for documents issued in a language other than English, in addition to original language transcripts. Translations do not have to be submitted in a sealed envelope. For additional information on specific cases and how to submit your documents, please see below:

United States

Documentation must be requested from your university’s registrar’s office and should include all semesters of study with grades, and include a date that indicates when your degree was awarded/conferred. You do not need to provide a physical diploma from a U.S. institution if your final semester of transcripts indicates a degree was awarded or conferred. Transcripts can be submitted electronically via the transcript service Parchment.

China

CHESICC verification reports are accepted, but not required. If using CHESICC, documentation must indicate a degree was awarded in order for it to be accepted in lieu of the original Certificate of Bachelor’s degree. Submit original language transcripts from all years of study, the Certificate of Bachelor’s degree, the Certificate of Graduation, and full English translations.

India

Individual mark-sheets or consolidated mark-sheets can be submitted. However, please note, copies originally submitted for review purposes will be compared to the official transcripts for accuracy, therefore official documentation should include all course names with grades for all years of study.

Provisional degrees from the autonomous college are accepted in lieu of a final certificate if graduation was held after August 2021. If a degree was awarded prior to August 2021, provisional degrees will not meet the requirement and you must submit your final graduation degree certificate. Please note, provisional degrees are only accepted temporarily the final graduation certificate will still be required once it is available.

In almost all cases, a passing certificate is NOT accepted in lieu of a degree certificate or a provisional certificate. However, there are two exceptions: for the Savitribai Phule Pune University, we will accept the Passing Certificate as the provisional degree and we will accept the Provisional Passing Certificate from Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute. Please keep in mind, this still does not replace the final graduation/degree certificate.

How to submit official documents

Transcripts and/or Proof of Degree will be considered official ONLY if received directly from your undergraduate institution (electronically or via mail). A document is not considered official if submitted, uploaded, scanned, emailed or opened by the student.

You can have your official documentation sent:

NYU Tandon Graduate Admissions Processing Center
458 Pike Road
Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006

Registration Holds

Please be sure to submit any outstanding official documentation to finalize your admission. These holds will block registration for the upcoming term until the requirements are satisfied. 

College Graduation Documentation Needed (RMC hold): The registrar office is missing your official proof of degree (such as a degree certificate or final transcript) verifying your earned degree. The registrar office can remove this hold once the proof of degree is received and processed by Graduate Admissions.

Proof of Documents Hold (YG5 hold): The graduate admissions office is missing your official transcripts or proof of degree because you may have applied with unofficial documents (ex. uploaded transcripts to the application). The Graduate Admissions office can remove this hold once the official documents are received.
