The University reserves the right to change tuition, fees, course offerings, regulations, and admission and graduation requirements at any time without prior notice. Students should refer back to this online catalog on a regular basis for the latest information on Fish Center for Holocaust and Genocide Studies policies and procedures.

Common Registrar Forms

The Registrar's Office is the “Keeper of the Academic Record.” Here's some more common forms you may need during your tenure at the Fish Center:

All documents must be submitted to the Fish Center academic administrator before submission to registrar.

In order to be considered for degree conferral, you must submit a Graduation Application (PDF)  to the Office of the Registrar by the deadlines listed below. Degrees are conferred September 30th, January 31st, June 30th, and August 31st of each year.  In order to be eligible for a degree, you must complete all program requirements by the degree date.

Applications for the January degree are due November 1st while applications for the June, August, and September degrees are due March 1st. Degrees are only conferred when the Office of the Registrar officially confirms that all requirements have been met. If a student does not meet the requirements for the date they applied, they must file a new application for each subsequent degree date until the degree is conferred.

Holocaust Studies Resources. Troves of writing, historical documents, art, testimonies, and other materials have been created and compiled in the years following the Holocaust, giving it the dubious distinction of being the most widely documented genocide in human history. Please do not think this is the entirety of our resources regarding the Holocaust—this guide is not comprehensive, although it is extensive.

University Libraries. The entry point to an exceptionally broad and deep set of resources and services. A central goal is to align students with the Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education—to help students become agile information seekers, discerning information consumers, and thereby lifelong learners and informed citizens. 

The Visual History Archive contains over 115,000 hours of testimony, the equivalent of 13 years of material. Safeguarding this material has been a primary aim of the USC Shoah Foundation since its inception. Click to login through your Yeshiva University library access.
