The CUNY Graduate Center, including CUNY BA and other entities, will be transitioning from Banner to CUNYfirst in April. Banner will go dark forever on April 5th. In order to prepare for this transition, our office will be closed for business on April 4th- 6th. If you anticipate needing a transcript (student or official copy) please place your request no later than April 4th. Requests received after April 4th will be held until CUNYfirst comes up for administrative purposes on Monday, April 16th. At that point, our registrar’s office will begin processing transcripts as soon as possible.
More information is available here.

Processing a transcript request takes approximately 5-7 business days.

CUNY Baccalaureate maintains your official undergraduate academic record.  If you need an official transcript, complete and submit the form below or put your request in writing to the attention of the Registrar. Be sure to include your name, signature, and the name/address of the intended recipient. We accept requests by mail, or in person.

  • Official transcripts are mailed directly to the institution or employer requesting them.
  • Or, you can pick up the transcript (in a sealed envelope) from our office.
  • If you are requesting an official transcript to be sent to your home address, you must indicate the name of the institution or employer that is requesting your transcript.

CUNY BA does not offer any electronic transcript or payment options at this time.

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.).
