MD Student & Graduate Services
The Office of Registration and Student Records maintains permanent academic records for all students and graduates of NYU Long Island School of Medicine.
Services for current students include registration, processing course drop and add requests, registering for away rotations, recording and distributing grades, and processing applications for the U.S. Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).
Our office also processes alumni requests for transcripts, certificates of enrollment, degree verification, and other materials needed to obtain licensure or professional appointment.
The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) works to maintain your privacy as a student. You may want to change or review your records, review how FERPA discloses personal identifiable information, or find out how to file a complaint.
Transcripts, Diplomas, and Credential Verification
We provide official transcripts to third-party institutions, licensing boards, and educational programs at a cost of $5 for each requested document. Unofficial transcripts are available for a fee of $5 per transcript.
You receive only one copy of your NYU Long Island School of Medicine diploma. You may need to provide copies of your diploma to apply for medical licensure or jobs. We certify the authenticity of copies made from the original diploma. However, some licensing boards require notarization, which we do not provide. Please check state requirements.
Hospitals and medical organizations are required to verify your MD degree and may request certification of graduation. MD degree verification requests must be submitted by mail with an original signature.
Student and Alumni Forms
Use the following forms to request a student service.
Affidavit of Change of Name
Submit notarized proof of name change using the affidavit of change of name form.
Request for Documents
Apply for graduation and diploma certification, dean’s letters of recommendation, and official transcripts with the request for documents form.
Include the following information:
- full name
- recipient’s complete name and address
- checks for official transcripts payable to NYU Long Island School of Medicine
There are no fees for diploma verification, graduation certifications, or dean’s letters. Transcript fees are waived for current students.
Although you may request a certification of graduation for an institution or program, all hospitals and medical organizations are required to verify your degree at the primary source. Organizations may do so by sending a written request to the Office of Registration and Student Records at firstname.lastname@example.org.
State Licensure Verification
Because licensure rules vary by location, we recommend that you carefully read all instructions provided with your licensure forms to determine individual state requirements regarding your medical school transcript. If the state requires you to submit a transcript with your licensure application, please include your licensure forms with your transcript request so that both documents can be sent together directly to the state licensing board.
