NYU seeks talented students from every corner of the globe. As an applicant, you are expected to demonstrate your talents and mastery of subject matter to support your application and marshal your best cases for admission to NYU. As a result, NYU has one of the most flexible testing policies of any college or university.
To be eligible for admission, applicants are expected to submit results from one of the following testing options:
In the spirit of presenting your best case for admission, choose the examination you feel positions you more favorably and submit only that examination - as long as the results you submit meet our standardized testing requirements. You should only submit multiple test types if you want us to review additional examination results. All examinations are considered equally and you will not be placed at a disadvantage if you do not send SAT/ACT testing.
With regard to the SAT, NYU participates in Score Choice, enabling you to elect which tests you want to send to NYU. If you take the SAT multiple times, we will only review the highest Critical Reading, Math, and Writing scores you submit, regardless of test dates, creating the highest possible composite score for you in our evaluation process.
For the ACT, we will review the highest composite ACT score with Writing, regardless of test dates.
SAT, SAT Subject Test, AP, and TOEFL: 2562
SAT, SAT Subject, ACT, and AP scores must be final at the time of application. For other examinations, if final results are unavailable at the time of application, predicted results may only be submitted by a school official, via one of the following methods:
NYU reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission if final results are not within close range of the predicted results.
Test scores or examination results should be submitted directly from the testing organization by the appropriate application deadline.
