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.

Transcript Request

While a matriculated student, Yale-NUS’ Registry Office maintains students’ academic record, prepares transcript letters, and can file status letters on College letterheads at the request of students.

Upon graduation, 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 your degree scroll and complimentary transcript from the Registrar’s Office or arrange for it to be mailed.

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

If you have any questions please contact registry@yale-nus.edu.sg.
