All applicants must submit an official copy of every transcript from every institution of higher education ever attended. The transcripts must be mailed to:

SUNY Old Westbury
Admission Processing

Photocopies, faxed copies or student copies are not considered official. If college transcripts are from institutions outside the United States, an official copy (in the original language) must be sent to the Graduate Admission Office at the College at Old Westbury. An official translation/evaluation by World Education Services (WES) or Office of International Education Services (AACRAO) may be submitted.

Applicants with education outside the United States are also encouraged to supply a college catalog or course syllabus that reflects the academic content for each course. This will facilitate the admissions evaluation process.

Completed applications received after the deadline will be processed on a space available basis.
