Application Review and Notification

An integrated review of a student’s academic background and University records is required to confirm admission to any NYU Global Academic Center. At the point of application, close attention is paid to the applicant's academic transcript and personal statement. Once an admissions decision has been reached, the applicant will be notified of the decision by email, typically within 2 weeks of the stated deadline. Only completed applications will be reviewed. If an application is missing a required component (i.e. official transcript, personal statement) it will not be reviewed.

Initial acceptance to study away through NYU is granted conditionally until all of the following stipulations are met:

Academic Success & Review of University Records

Please be aware that admission to any of the NYU Global Academic Programs is contingent upon the applicant’s continued academic success and a review of his or her University records. Should a student’s admission be revoked as a result of this review, New York University is not responsible for refunding any expenses incurred in preparation for the intended semester of study.

Discipline Statement

Given their unique nature, membership in a global campus community requires mutual respect, consideration, and concern for the well-being of others as well as a significant degree of personal integrity and maturity. Students whose prior behavior has been determined through the University student conduct process to have been disruptive to the University community and/or antithetical to these qualities may be precluded from participation in the study away experience. Accordingly, please be advised that information concerning student conduct actions is made available to the New York University Global Academic Centers and may be taken into consideration in the process of reviewing a student’s application to participate. Students who have been placed on University disciplinary probation or on deferred suspension from University housing are ineligible to participate in study away during the period of their probation and/or deferred status. Students who have been suspended, withdrawn, or dismissed from the University and those who have been dismissed or suspended from University housing are permanently ineligible to enroll at the Global Academic Centers.

University Leave Policy

Students who have been on leave from the University must return to the New York City campus and successfully complete one academic semester (fall or spring) of full-time course work before enrolling in a CAS Summer Abroad program.

Reservation Fee

Admitted students who intend to enroll must confirm their intention to participate by submitting a nonrefundable reservation fee.  Enrollment is not guaranteed until this payment is received.  Reservation fees will be accepted as long as space remains available in the program.

Transfer of Credits
