In 1986, the New York State Legislature created the Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (CSTEP) to increase “access by minority or disadvantaged students to academic programs that...prepare students for licensure or employment” in scientific, technical or health-related professions. Since that time, CSTEP at NYU has provided a means for traditionally underserved, low-income students to obtain admission for STEM careers and Licensed Professions as well as academic and financial support during their course of study at the University.
For questions related to the CSTEP program you may call (212) 998-5690.
If you are an incoming NYU student in need of accommodation due to chronic, psychological, visual, mobility and/or learning disability, or are Deaf or Hard of Hearing, you should register with the Moses Center for Students with Disabilities.
To be eligible for CSTEP at NYU, a first-time college applicant must meet the following requirements:
OR be economically disadvantaged according to state guidelines - Scholarship aid is limited.
In order to receive financial aid, a student must be a U.S. Citizen or a Permanent Resident.
