NYU Precollege offers rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience academic and student life at New York University. This academically rigorous program places high school students in six-week, intensive, college-level courses with current college students and allows them to gain academic credit, which may be applied to a future degree.
Courses are available in more than 30 academic areas. With NYU Precollege, you can explore the archeological history of New York City, begin to master a foreign language, practice the art of journalism, explore engineering and design, or delve into business and finance.
If you are looking for a more structured experience, many of our schools and colleges at NYU offer additional programs for high school students.
In addition to the various credit-bearing college courses students can select, students also have the option of taking a noncredit College Writing Workshop, a low-cost, five-week course taught by NYU’s writing faculty. The workshop introduces students to college-level reading and writing techniques and helps them hone their research and writing skills. Past students have found the course to be an excellent supplement to their credit-bearing NYU courses, and the skills they develop enhance their high school and undergraduate studies.
Students must be enrolled in at least one credit-bearing course to take the College Writing Workshop; it can be the second or third course students have on their schedule. The College Writing Workshop (EXPOS-UA 30) can be found in the Course Search under the College of Arts and Science’s Expository Writing department. Several sections are offered, including sections designed for international or domestic students with English as their second language. The course is graded pass/fail.
