Application Information


The 2016 Summer in NYC application is now available. 

If you are eligible to participate in Summer in NYC 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.  If you have been a visiting student for a previous term, you must reapply to take summer courses.

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, which includes a $25 application fee.

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

2. Send an official copy of your university transcript for your most recent college/university/institution attended.

Unofficial transcripts can be attached to the application on the Academic History page of the application, which will expedite processing time. Official transcripts may be e-mailed to, or mailed to:
