Graduate School & Fellowship Advising

Graduate school advising support is available to current Yale-NUS students and alumni alike. Many selective graduate programs, especially those with a professional focus (business, law, medicine, education, public policy, etc.) favor candidates who have a few years of relevant work experience after graduation and bring a more mature, in-depth perspective to the classroom. Yale-NUS alumni can approach CIPE for graduate school application guidance at any stage of their post-graduate career. In addition, CIPE organizes graduate school sessions with faculty, workshops on aspects of the application process and info sessions with program representatives. All of these are also open to alumni, who can RSVP via Symplicity using their alumni email address.

For more information on the graduate school application process and funding options, please visit the CIPE Graduate and Professional School webpage.

If you have questions and would like to set up an advising appointment, please email:

  • Nilanjana Pal for help with MBA, graduate medical school and graduate law school programs.
  • Paul Wilt for degree-granting fellowships such as the Fulbright Programme and Knight-Hennessy Scholars.

Transcript Request

The Yale-NUS Registry Office maintains academic records, prepares transcript letters, and files status letters on College letterhead for current students.

Upon graduation, the graduate’s degree scroll and one complimentary official transcript are printed and issued by the NUS Central Registrar. Students may receive the scroll and transcript in person if they attend the NUS Commencement Ceremony. If the student is not attending the NUS Commencement Ceremony, they may collect their degree scroll and complimentary transcript from the Registrar’s Office or arrange for it to be mailed.

For additional copies of an official transcript, graduates must apply directly with the NUS Registrar.
