Requesting a Transcript After Completion of Tisch Summer High School

College Credit and Course Information

During the four weeks with the Tisch Summer High School Program, students will earn six college credits, accredited by New York University. Each college or university has their own transfer policy, so students will need to inquire how credits earned in the Tisch Summer High School Program can be applied once they are admitted to an undergraduate program.

All grades will be posted by September, but academic transcripts are not automatically sent at the end of summer. If students would like an academic transcript, they can make a request by:

  • Visiting the Registrar’s Office located at the Student Services Center (25 West 4th Street)
  • Mailing or faxing a letter to University Registrar.
  • More information can be found on the registrar’s website .

Transcripts can be requested at any time. When making requests in person, photo ID must be presented. Mailed or faxed requests require the signature of the student. Only the student can make a request for his or her grades.

Please note that any students who have not completely paid all charges attributed to their program will not be able to request a transcript until their Bursar account is settled. Students with questions about their account should contact the Office of the Bursar at NYU at (212) 998-2806 or bursar.studentaccounts@nyu.edu . Please include the student identification number or Nnumber in the email correspondence or have it ready when calling the Bursar Office.

Policy Reminder: Overnight Leave

As we get closer to the start of the program, this is a good time to make sure you’ve read and understood all Policies.

The specific policy on Overnight Leaves is that students are not allowed to be away overnight or on weekends except for extenuating circumstances or emergencies. In such cases, students are required to notify the Tisch High School program administrator and dormitory staff of any leave by submitting an Overnight Form . The form must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian on record for the student. Forms must be submitted 48 hours before the requested leave in order to receive proper approval from NYU and Tisch staff.

In addition, you will need to let your instructors and program directors know of any absences. Since much of the work done in the program is collaborative, any absence can have an effect on the group and the instructor will need to plan in advance for any student who may miss a class or project.  Please note that absences will affect your final grade and standing in the program.

Please make sure your family is aware of this policy, along with others!

How To Get To Campus

As you know, students are responsible for making arrangements to get themselves to Weinstein Hall for check-in.  Washington Square is located near 5th Avenue, one block below 8th street.

Prior to the check-in date, please note the residence hall cannot accept any types of packages or luggage for students. Items for students will only be accepted by the residence hall after July 10th, when the students have officially checked into the residence hall.
