The application review is a holistic process that considers the complete academic record, unique program requirements, and student essay.

Extended Stay Application

Students interested in extending their study away through the spring will be given priority if a completed Study Away Application and Extended Stay Form are submitted by September 29th. Notification will be sent on October 4.

Deadlines

You should submit your electronic application on or before the admissions deadlines posted below. You are welcome to apply for admission as early as you would like and we will keep your application on file until we begin reviewing applications for the term you have indicated. We tend to open our application 6-8 months before the application deadline date.

Special note for students who wish to enroll at NYU Prague: Visa requirements set by the Czech government take up to 4 months to secure and process - applying as early as possible allows enough time to follow the required steps to obtain the visa.
