The New England School of Art & Design Transcripts
The New England School of Art & Design (NESAD) was an independent, non-profit, degree-granting institution of higher education from 1923 until September of 1996, when it merged with Suffolk University. Suffolk University houses official transcripts received from NESAD, including degrees granted during the period NESAD operated independently, and will respond to NESAD transcript requests regardless of when NESAD courses were taken or when a degree was issued (where applicable). The University is not aware of any information suggesting the transcript records which the University received from the predecessor institution are not accurate. However, Suffolk University cannot independently verify the accuracy or completeness of these records.
The University Registrar's Office does not issue official transcripts for students with outstanding financial obligations to the University. For questions on financial holds, please contact the Office of the Bursar at 617-573-8407.
Unofficial transcripts are available 24/7 to students with access to WebAdvisor. Login to view or print your unofficial transcript. If you are having trouble logging in, contact the University Service Desk at 617-557-2000.
