Transcripts consist of a student’s graduate academic history at the Newmark J-School. Unofficial transcripts are available at no cost through CUNYfirst Student Self-Service. Students who need an official transcript for themselves – or for submission to an employer or other educational institution – may order official transcripts. The Newmark J-School provides a service which allows students to request and pay for an official transcript online. Students using this online service are responsible for the $7.00 transcript fee (unless it is going directly to another CUNY campus) plus a $2.00 convenience service charge. Payment is available by any major credit card or debit card. Upon receipt of requests, transcripts are processed in 2-4 business days.
