Frequently asked questions

My great-great-great uncle went to Fordham a long time ago, back in the 19th century. Can you find out if he graduated?

Yes, we have a card file of all students who attended the college up to 1927, whether they graduated or not. After 1927, we have to search yearbooks and commencement programs. We also can conduct of search of the Medical and Pharmacy schools student lists, although that will take some time. The Manhattan schools (Grad Arts, Education, Business and Social Service) are somewhat difficult since they moved around for 60 years before settling down at Lincoln Center.

Where can I get birth/death certificates from Fordham Hospital which closed in the 1970's?

Fordham Hospital was not affiliated with the university. It was a city run hospital and the records are with the city. Check
