Applicants must send official transcripts from all colleges and universities attended (even if a degree was not earned). Relay accepts official electronic and hard-copy transcripts.
Electronic transcripts must meet all the following criteria:
- They are sent via a third-party website or directly from your institution(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org;
- They include instructions for accessing the verified official transcript via a secure username and password; and
- They are from a US-based institution.
Hard-copy transcripts must arrive in a sealed, unopened envelope bearing the institution’s insignia and should be addressed to: Relay Graduate School of Education, Office of Admissions and Enrollment, 25 Broadway, 3rd Floor, New York, NY 10004.
Relay will only evaluate completed applications submitted by the final deadline. Admission to Relay occurs on a rolling basis, so we strongly recommend that applicants complete their admissions process as soon as possible.
Credit from a Non-US (International) Institution
Applicants who earned credit from an institution outside of the United States must send Relay an official, sealed copy of their international transcript and an official course-by-course evaluation of their transcript provided by a foreign-credential evaluator. Applicants are encouraged to explore additional guidance here and schedule an office hour with the Admissions team for additional support on next steps.
Applicants having difficulty obtaining an official, sealed copy of their international transcript may instead submit:
- A copy of the official transcript submitted from the evaluation company that accompanies the course-by-course evaluation
A note on study abroad: Applicants who studied abroad while attending their undergraduate institutions are not required to submit their study-abroad transcript to Relay, provided that the study-abroad credits are on their undergraduate transcript.
