Processing a transcript request takes at least 10 business days.
Before you request a transcript, check your advisement report to be sure your transcript is correct and up-to-date. Students and alumni from Spring 2003 forward can access their advisement reports here: http://cunyba.gc.cuny.edu/advisementreports/. Advisement reports are NOT what you should send graduate school or employers requesting your transcript – they do not indicate your graduation status. If you do not know your Banner ID submit a request for it to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Some graduate schools, especially the professional schools (e.g., medical and law schools), require you to submit not only the CUNY Baccalaureate transcript, which shows that you earned the degree, but also original transcripts from every CUNY and non-CUNY college you attended before and during CUNY BA, even when those credits are reflected on the CUNY Baccalaureate transcript. Students are expected to find out exactly what documents graduate schools require for admission.
If your employer only needs to verify your graduation date and degree, he/she may call the CUNY Baccalaureate Registrar at (212) 817-8227 (Monday – Friday, 9:30 a.m.– 4:30 p.m.).
