Verification of Credentials for Graduates of the School of Medicine
All requests for verification of your Doctor of Medicine degree
must be submitted in writing with an original signature. We
do not accept fax requests. All requests should be addressed to:
Office of Registration/Student Records
New York University School of Medicine
550 First Avenue, NY, NY 10016
Official transcripts are sent only to third party programs, institutions,
licensing boards, etc. Our policy is not to send official transcripts
to graduates however you may request an unofficial transcript for
your records. When making your request please be sure to include
a full name and address to which the document should be sent. There
is a $4.00 fee for each of the transcripts you request. The check
should be made payable to New York University School of Medicine.
This is the only document for which we charge a fee.
Some programs or institutions ask you to provide a copy of your
dean's letter. This request must be submitted in writing along with
the complete name and address of the addressee and the institution
to which it is being sent. There is no fee.
State Licensure Verification:
It is our policy to fulfill your written request quickly and to
maintain accurate documentation of any disbursement of academic
records. We cannot advise you regarding individual state licensure
rules. However, we do suggest that you carefully read the instructions
provided with the licensure forms to determine if the state requires
a transcript to be sent at the time of application. If so, please
submit a written request with the licensure form requesting the
transcript. It is best to have these documents sent together directly
to the Board.
Only one diploma is issued for each graduate. No copy exits unless
you have it made from your original. If you decide to make multiple
copies before your frame your diploma please keep them in a secure
location. It should not be notarized or certified until necessary.
If you provide us with a copy of the diploma we will issue a statement
indicating that the diploma is a "true copy." However,
some licensing boards require the copy be notarized. If so you will
have to take it to a notary. You can usually find one in a bank.
It is always best to do exactly as instructed when dealing with
state licensure boards. Please donÃt make assumptions.
