MD Registration & Student Records
NYU Long Island School of Medicine’s Office of Registration and Student Records supports students with the practical aspects of their medical education. We assist with registration, manage academic records, maintain course catalogs, and help with class schedules.
We also provide information about our academic calendars; elective, clerkship, and advanced clinical rotation lotteries; away rotations; the licensure exam; residency applications; and the resident matching process. On request, we provide services such as official copies of your transcripts and diploma.
All students enrolled at NYU Long Island School of Medicine are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and by NYU’s FERPA policy. Specific guidelines outlined in the FERPA apply to accessing educational records.
Resources for Medical Students
As part of medical training, all students participate in standard processes for meeting graduation requirements that include U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) licensure and securing residencies and fellowships.
Graduation Requirements for MD Students
In addition to the successful completion of all preclinical coursework, the core clerkships, and longitudinal coursework, students must meet the following graduation requirements:
- one two-week elective (phase two)
- 12 weeks of electives (phase three)
- one four-week subinternship
- one four-week critical care clerkship
- transition to residency
In addition, medical students must pass the Comprehensive Clinical Skills Exams (CCSE), and the USMLE Step 1, and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge exams.
Candidates must submit all required fees to receive their degree.
U.S. Medical Licensing Examination
All medical students take the two-step USMLE to demonstrate their ability to provide safe and effective patient care. The USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 Clinical Knowledge exams are graduation requirements. You take these exams after completion of the phase two academic year. Learn more about the USMLE.
Electronic Residency Application Service
Submit residency applications and supporting materials through the Association of American Medical Colleges. Access the Electronic Residency Application Service.
Fellowship and Residency Electronic Interactive Database Access System

Visiting Student Learning Opportunities
Third-year students may apply for electives at other medical schools with the Association of American Medical Colleges’ Visiting Student Learning Opportunities (VSLO). The Office of Registration and Student Records assists with this process. All extramural electives must be approved by the associate dean of students and diversity and the vice dean or designee. Learn more about this process through VSLO.
National Resident Matching Program
Apply to first- and second-year residency positions at U.S. medical schools using the National Resident Matching Program, or NRMP, the process that all medical students participate in to match with a residency program. Learn more about the resident matching process.
NYU Long Island School of Medicine reserves the right to deny registration and withhold all information regarding the record of any student who is in arrears in the payment of tuition, fees, loans, or other charges (including charges for housing or other activities or services) for as long as any arrears remain. It also reserves the right not to promote the student from one semester to another and to prohibit attendance at graduation in case of payment arrears.
