All uploaded transcripts must be accompanied by

institutions must have grades or marks and contain a copy of diploma if the
degree has been conferred. Make sure your name appears on the
transcript/record. Scanned documents must be clear and legible.

The New School reserves the right to require
official transcripts or an official NACES course-by-course evaluation at any
time during the admission process. Any fraudulent activity or discrepancies
found between uploaded and official transcripts will result in the immediate
revocation of admission and/or dismissal from The New School.
Applicants offered admission will be required
to submit official, final transcripts with proof of their degree conferral prior to
enrollment. Admitted applicants must submit all official transcripts pertaining
to their entire academic career. Transcripts uploaded with the online application are considered unofficial and do not satisfy this requirement.
Students with International Credentials Seeking Transfer Credit
Graduate and postgraduate applicants who are seeking transfer credit and attended postsecondary institutions outside of the United States are required to submit official transcripts and translation (if transcript is not in English).
While not required, students may have their transcript(s) evaluated by World Education Services (WES), by Education Credential Evaluators (ECE), or by another member of the National Association of Credit Evaluation Services (NACES). Follow all document requirements as outlined on the evaluation service providers’ websites. Evaluations completed by WES or ECE will be sent directly to us electronically by the vendor. All other NACES provider evaluations should be mailed directly by the vendor to the address for Supplemental Materials.

The New School accepts electronic transcripts only from our approved vendors:
- National Student

We do not accept electronic transcripts sent
directly by a student or school offices. All international academic credentials
must be submitted as indicated in the Additional Information for Specific
Applicant Populations section.
