Am I eligible to apply for Fall in New York?
If any of the following apply to you, you are eligible to apply for Fall in New York:
- High school graduates who have earned a high school diploma or equivalent.
- Current undergraduates at a college/university who would like to study away for a semester.
- Post-graduate students who already have their Bachelor's degree from a regionally accredited college or university and wish to take undergraduate courses.
- Returning visiting students may re-apply for up to three consecutive semesters.
Visiting students should work with their home institution to ensure that the courses they participate in at NYU will transfer back to the school where they will receive their degree.
Visiting student admission decisions are based on the strength of your academic work and life experiences. Our most competitive visiting student applicants have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher, but each year, candidates may be admitted with more modest academic records if they have compelling circumstances to share in the "Additional Information" section of our application.
Who should not apply as a visiting student?
Students currently on academic, disciplinary, and/or medical leave or probation at their current institution are not eligible to study at NYU. In certain cases, appeals to this policy may be reviewed when indicated on the application with appropriate documentation. Students may take a personal leave for the semester(s) they are studying at NYU if such a leave is required by their home institution to maintain matriculation.
