MD Registration & Student Records
NYU School of Medicine’s Office of Registration and Student Records handles the practical aspects of your medical education, including helping you with registration, academic records, course catalogs, and class schedules.
Our office provides you with information about our academic calendars, clerkship and elective and selective lotteries, the licensure exam, residency applications, and the resident matching process. You can also browse our full catalog of elective programs and request student services, including official copies of your transcripts and diploma.
All NYU School of Medicine medical students complete our four-stage MD curriculum, but the start and end dates of each academic year, as well as scheduled recesses, may vary depending on your pathway. Our academic calendars provide information about important dates for all pathways.
Resources for Medical Students
As part of medical training, all students participate in standardized systems for securing residencies and fellowships, graduating, and completing the U.S. medical licensure process. The quick links below allow you to access internal resources and external resources from national medical organizations to help you accomplish these tasks.
Graduation Requirements for MD Students
Specific coursework and clerkship requirements are necessary to graduate. Learn more about our graduation requirements.
No candidate may be recommended for a degree until all required fees have been paid. NYU School of Medicine cannot be responsible for the inclusion in the current official graduation list of any candidate who pays fees after the first day of May, September, or January for degrees in May, September, or January, respectively.
Following the payment of all required fees, and on approval of the faculty, the candidate will be recommended for the degree as of the date of the next regular meeting of the NYU School of Medicine Board of Trustees at which the awarding of degrees is a part of the order of business.
For students enrolled in four- or five-year pathways, the university confers the MD degree in May. For three-year-pathway students, the MD degree is conferred in June; and for students enrolled in the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery program, the degree is conferred in January.
U.S. Medical Licensing Examination
All medical students take the three-step U.S. Medical Licensing Examination®, or USMLE®, to demonstrate their ability to provide safe and effective patient care. Please note that receiving your USMLE® Step 2 Clinical Skills scores may take as long as three months. Be sure to schedule this exam early enough in your final academic year so that the scores are available in time to meet graduation requirements. Learn more about the USMLE®.

NYU School of Medicine reserves the right to deny registration and withhold all information regarding the record of any student who is in arrears in the payment of tuition, fees, loans, or other charges (including charges for housing, dining, or other activities or services) for as long as any arrears remain. It also reserves the right not to promote the student from one semester to another and to prohibit attendance at graduation in case of payment arrears.
