• Academic Transcripts

    The New School has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide transcript ordering via the Web. You can order transcripts using any major credit card. Your card will only be charged after your order has been completed. 

    Our office will be closed November 26-29 in recognition of the Thanksgiving holiday. Transcripts requested after 12:00 noon on Wednesday, November 25, will not be processed until Monday, November 30. However, electronic transcripts that require no office intervention (i.e., those with no holds, attachments, etc.) are processed as soon as all information is cleared.

    Uploading Documents

    Do you have documents to include with your official transcript? Select the Upload option to include documents. The Registrar's Office will review the documents and determine whether they are appropriate to be sent. If not validated, the documents will not be sent. We will not send resumes, cover letters, or another school's transcripts. Examples of valid documents include scholarship applications and AMCAS and LSAT forms. The New School assumes no responsibility for the readability of the documents.

    Hold for Degree and/or Grades

    The New School does NOT honor requests to hold transcript orders until grades or degrees are posted. Please verify your grades and degree conferral status on MyNewschool before proceeding with your transcript order. There will be no refunds.


    Transcripts will not be issued to persons with holds on their records. Upon placing your transcript order, you will be provided with contact information for any hold that prevents your transcript order from proceeding. Holds must be cleared before a transcript request can be processed.

    Obtaining Course Descriptions

    Course descriptions for courses currently offered can be found in the university course catalog. For courses no longer offered, please check the academic catalog archives to download and print course descriptions. If you cannot locate your course descriptions in either of these places, please complete the Course Description Request Form (PDF) to have the description researched. Please allow five business days for processing (seven business days for pre-1982 courses).
