Application Information

The January Term 2015 application is now closed. The January Term 2016 application will be live on October 1, 2015. 

If you are eligible to participate in January Term as a visiting student, please follow the steps below to apply. Current NYU Students do not need to follow these steps and can register for courses directly via Albert. Please note: Visiting students may only apply to one NYU program at a time.

January Term is a selective program, and decisions are based on the strength of your academic work. Our most competitive visiting student applicants have a cumulative 3.0 GPA or higher.

Students currently on academic, disciplinary, and/or medical leave or probation at your 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.

Application Instructions for Visiting Students:

1. Fill out and submit the online application form (available October 1, 2015), which includes a $70 application fee.

  • Provide a valid e-mail address on the form, as all communication regarding your application will be sent via e-mail.
