    Alumni Program

     

    Yeshiva University is happy to offer its graduates the opportunity to take additional courses on either a credit or non-credit basis.

     

    FOR CREDIT:

    If you wish to take courses for credit you may register after the completion of the registration period for degree students. The courses must be open. You must meet all course requirements as stipulated by the instructor such as attendance, examinations and term papers. Your performance (grades and credit) will be recorded as your permanent record in the same manner as courses taken prior to graduation.

     

    You will be charged a $25 registration fee and a per credit tuition charge for these courses.

     

    WITHOUT CREDIT:

    If you do not need credit you may register after the completion of the registration period for degree students. The courses must be open. You must receive instructor approval and attend the course regularly and complete assignments and examinations as determined by the instructor. You will receive no credit for the courses audited and a grade of “L” will be recorded on your transcript.

     

    The only charge is a $25 registration fee per semester and a lab fee, if applicable.


    You may apply using this form.

    Enrollment Verification

     

    An Enrollment Verification Certificate is an official document provided by the registrar verifying dates of attendance, and student status (full or part time) by term. It is typically requested for health insurance, visa, employment and credit verification purposes. There is no fee for this service.

    Note: If you are requesting a verification for a visa, you should make certain that your expected graduation date is included on your record before leaving and returning to the United States.

    Transcripts

    What is a transcript?

    A transcript is an official record of a student's entire tenure at Yeshiva University. It reflects all coursework and grades per term for each school attended within the University. Other information on your transcript includes:

    • Your name as it appears in Yeshiva University records
    • School and departmental affiliation
    • Degree/Certificate program (if applicable)
    • Degree/Certificate conferral date (if applicable)
    • Honors earned (if applicable)
    • Your cumulative and semester grade point averages

    Currently enrolled and former students may order a transcript using our online transcript request form. Please allow 2-3 business days for processing before your transcript is shipped or made available for pickup. Our fee structure is

    Remember to follow up with the school or organization to which the transcript was sent to be certain that it was received.

    We only release transcripts to students with a picture ID (driver’s license or student ID).
