Application Information

washington square park

The January Term 2016 application is now live. 

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.

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. To be eligible for visiting student admission, you must not currently be on academic, disciplinary, and/or medical leave or probation at your current institution. In certain cases, appeals to this policy may be considered but an explanation must be submitted within the application for such consideration. 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, 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.

2. Select and register for courses.
