This works whether you are a current student or an alumnus. There is no registration required and there are no extra convenience fees. We have added a number of delivery options including regular and express mail. Now you can even have your transcript sent securely by email (please read important instructions and conditions below). Payment is handled online at the same time you order. Tracking options are available, including text messages to your phone.

    How do I get started?

    Most students and recent alumni will get to our form through MyYU. It is highly recommended you use MyYU as that will provide the fastest and most streamlined process. If you can`t use MyYU, that`s OK! There is an alternative link below the MyYU instructions.

    To log on to Clearinghouse Services through MyYU:

    1. Go to www.yu.edu/myyu

    2. Click on ‘Faculty, Students and Staff’
    3. Log in to your myyu account using your YU ID (starts with 800 or 999)
    4. Once you are logged in, click on ‘Student and Financial Aid’

    If you cannot use MyYU:

    Please click HERE to access our form directly.  You will need to perform one extra step, signing a consent form, if you access the transcript form this way. The GOOD NEWS is that it only adds a few more minutes to the process and can, in most cases, be completed entirely online.

    What if I need more help?

    If you get stuck along the way in filling out the form you can always contact support in any of our offices. Should you need a more step-by-step guide to the process you can download such a guide here.

    About Ordering an Electronic Transcript by Email

    We are very excited to offer you a new option to send your transcripts which is faster and cheaper than our traditional methods, the Official PDF Transcript. There are some things to keep in mind if you wish to use this option.

    Please note: An electronic transcript is a specially secured image file of your transcript that is transmitted by email. It is not automatically produced by a computer and is reviewed for accuracy and security by our staff before being sent out. While it is faster and more convenient than paper delivery methods please allow up to a full business day after your order is placed for delivery.

    ·       FIRST AND FOREMOST... Always check with the receiving institution FIRST to see if they will accept an Official PDF Transcript. An increasing number will, but it is your responsibility to make sure.

    ·       You will be required to supply the email address where the transcript is to be sent. Do not assume it is the the general address on the institution's home page or the address of the registrar. Again, please check with the institution to determine the correct address.

    ·       If for some reason the transcript cannot be delivered, owing to the nature of email, you will not be charged. You can submit a new order once the institution has corrected the problem on their end. 

    ·       In order to keep the document secure, special security and rights management is applied to the files. This means, amongst other things, that the document has a special password and will expire after 30 days. More details about authenticating the document can be found here. You can share this document with other schools who may have questions about our Official PDF Transcript. We welcome any inquiries from other institutions that have further questions or concerns.

    Navigating CITI and IRB
    • CITI website
      • Prior to working on a research project, students and faculty must take the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI) computer-based training program. This web-based course is a mandated educational requirement for Einstein faculty and staff who participate in human subject research. It must be completed every 5 years online and students are required to submit proof of completion to the Psychology Office.

    • IRB website 
      • After the proposal is approved, the student must apply for IRB approval. This can be done through the Integrated Research Information Systems (iRIS) website and students should review the online overview of the IRB process  prior to submitting their proposals.  Students must use their official Ferkauf email addresses to register for both CITI and iRIS and should link these two accounts as CITI training completion is required before IRB submission.  Students can upload documents related to their research project such as the proposal, consent forms, and flyers directly into the iRIS site.  The student's submission requires sign-off by both the Principal Investigator (the student's research advisor) and the Ferkauf representative to the IRB (Dr. Roee Holtzer) which can be requested through the iRIS site. Once the submission is received by the IRB, the student will be notified via Ferkauf email of approval or requests for additional information or revisions. The IRB application must be turned in early enough so that it is approved before the end of the student's fourth year.

  • Program Representatives

    What it is: Program representatives serve as the liaison between faculty and students. They collect student concerns about everything affecting their cohort (i.e. professors, classes, etc) and present these to program administrators in meetings each semester. In turn, they communicate faculty and administrative concerns back to their classmates. They are also afforded the opportunity to participate in and manage group projects benefitting Ferkauf as a whole. 

    Application process: These positions are chosen by the faculty in first year. There is no application process-faculty choose together based on who they think will be best for the role. Selected students are informed directly by the existing program representatives.

      Teaching Assistant (TA) positions

      What they are: Opportunities to work directly with faculty members in support of their specific classes and/or research. Each TA position is different and may involve administrative tasks, teaching, research, management and more. All formal TA positions are paid. (If you volunteer to help a faculty member with work relating to classes or research, but you do not have a formal position, this is not paid.)

      Application process: These positions are chosen by the faculty members. Sometimes a faculty member will reach out to a student directly. Other times he or she will choose from a pool of students who have applied or shown interest. All students interested in TA positions should send their CVs to Dr. McGinn in their first year, specifying which TA positions they are interested in and why. You are also welcome to email faculty members directly to express interest or to find out more about the opportunity. Note: Faculty members are busy and you may not always get a quick reply. Once TAs have been chosen, a form letter will be sent informing everyone who applied.

      OPS: Organization of Psychology Students

      What it is: The Organization of Psychology Students is a board of elected students representing each of Ferkauf's programs (school, health, adult and the master's program in counseling). They work to improve social and academic student life at Ferkauf.

      Being a OPS representative includes:

      • Attending monthly OPS board member meetings
      • Annual meetings with the Ferkauf Board of Directors and the Dean
      • Soliciting feedback from students and meeting with faculty

      Members of board have the opportunity to get involved in a number of domains:

      • social/quality-of-life (e.g. socials, midterm and finals food)
      • public relations
      • purchasing
      • alumni relations
      • publication/website
      • literary committee
      • academic activities such as colloquia partnerships with various departments
      • orientation
      • bulletin board
      • research awards/conference grants


      The Executive Board of OPS consists of no less than six members. For the masters program there is one representative who serves a one year term. For all of the doctoral programs, there are two representatives who each serve two year terms. Officers are chair and co-chair, vice chair, secretary, treasurer, social and secretary. There is a stipend for all board members.

      Application process: All OPS reps are elected by their fellow students. Each year, the OPS board announces the number of openings for new OPS reps. At that time, students are permitted to "run" by emailing their name, program, year, and a paragraph description of why they are running for OPS representative to opsatferkauf@gmail.com. This paragraph will go out to students across the clinical program for voting.
