Under "Admission" click on "Application Status", then select "Choose Payment Options"

Instead, an electronic version of your official CUNY transcript will be retrieved by CUNY/UAPC after your Admission Application is submitted. In order to retrieve your transcript, your social security number or CUNY ID number as indicated on your Admission Application must be identical to the identification number listed on your CUNY college record. If there are stops and/or holds on your CUNY record, you must request a paper transcript directly from your CUNY college registrar.

If you have additional records from a college, university and/or proprietary school outside CUNY, an official transcript is required for each institution attended. Please see All other college, university, and/or proprietary school transcript section below.

How to send: Your transcript(s) should be attached to your Transcript Request Form included in your Application Summary Package and sent to the appropriate CUNY/UAPC address (at left).

All other college, university and/or proprietary school transcript(s) >>

If you are currently attending or if you have ever attended a college, university or proprietary school within the U.S., an official transcript is required for each school attended. You must request that your official transcript is sent directly from the college, university, and/or proprietary school to CUNY/UAPC.

If you are currently attending or if you have ever attended a college, university or any postsecondary institution outside the U.S., an official record is required for each institution attended. Please see Postsecondary school/university record section here.

All transfer applicants are required to submit an official high school transcript with proof of graduation indicated.

If you have graduated from a U.S. high school or a United States-administered American, International or Department of Defense school , an official paper transcript is required. The transcript must be sent directly to CUNY/UAPC from the high school in a sealed, school-issued envelope.

If you attended more than one high school, please make certain that your official transcript indicates coursework and grades completed at all previously attended high schools. If coursework and grades are not included on your transcript, a copy of your official transcript from each previously attended high school is also required. If your record includes education completed outside the U.S., a copy of your transcript in its original language is required. If your transcript is in a language other than English, a translation is also required. Please see English translation(s) of foreign records here.

Please review the list of Required Secondary School Credentials. If your record is in a language other than English, a translation is also required. Please see English translation(s) of foreign records here.

If you are a New York State resident who received home-schooling, a transcript outlining all completed coursework with grades earned is required. You must also submit a letter from the superintendent of your school district or comparable chief school administrator certifying that you have completed the substantial equivalent of a New York State four-year high school program through home-schooling. If you cannot obtain the letter from the high school district, you must obtain a GED. See GED section below.

If you are an out-of-state resident who received home-schooling, a state-issued diploma is required. If you have not obtained a state-issued diploma, you must obtain your GED. See GED section below.
