Official transcripts from the other university and a $750 administrative fee must be submitted to the Simon Registrar's Office by the end of the quarter in which you expect to graduate. For example, if you expect to receive your degree at the end of Spring Quarter, we must receive the transcripts and payment by the last day of final exams for spring quarter.
