General Degree RequirementsStudents entering NYU Stern's MS in Accounting program are required to hold a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in the U.S. or an equivalent degree from a foreign country.
If you submit your application prior to the conferral of your bachelor's degree or equivalent, we will accept and evaluate your application. If an offer of admission is made, it will be contingent upon receiving your degree conferral prior to enrollment.
Transcript Requirements for the Online ApplicationThere are two options for submitting an unofficial transcript via the online application:
1. Upload a scanned copy
2. Complete and upload the Self-Reported Transcript Form
It is strongly recommended that you use your official transcript as a reference when submitting a self-reported transcript. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission at any time, prior to or after enrolling, if there is any discrepancy between the scanned/self-reported transcript and the official transcript.
If your original transcript is not in English, you must use the Self-Reported Transcript Form.
Instructions for Using the Self-Reported Transcript Form
- List the name and course number of each course exactly as it appears on your official transcript. If your transcript is not in English, provide an accurate English translation of the course title.
- List the grade or mark for each course exactly as it appears on your official transcript. Do not reinterpret grades or convert grades to a different scale.
- Include courses taken that do not contribute to your overall score/grade (e.g. classes that were dropped, withdrawn from, incomplete, taken pass/fail, taken more than once, etc.)
- Carefully match the courses taken with the appropriate semester/term dates, exactly as they appear on your official transcript. Include terms for any summer, winter, transfer, exchange, or study abroad courses.
- If you are in the process of completing a degree, please include the names of any courses in which you are currently enrolled and note them as "in progress."
Official Transcript Requirement for EnrollmentAdmitted students are required to provide an official copy of all academic transcripts and proof of their degree conferral prior to enrollment. Instructions are communicated upon admission.
Do not send official transcripts to NYU Stern unless instructed to do so.
