Internal Transfers

You should use our online internal transfer application if you currently attend NYU and wish to be considered for transfer to another NYU undergraduate school or college. If you wish to change programs within your current school or college, please contact your school’s advising office directly for information on their interdepartmental transfer process.

To be eligible, you must be in at least your second semester of consecutive full-time study at your current NYU school or college. Students who have previously applied for an internal transfer and were denied admission must wait one full academic year before becoming eligible to reapply. Likewise, students who have already completed an internal transfer must wait one full academic year before applying for another. Students in the Core Program in Liberal Studies must complete the Core Program before transitioning to a new school/college for the beginning of one's junior year. Students interested in transitioning to a school/college that has additional academic or artistic requirements which may compromise the ability of a student to graduate in 4 years, should contact their Liberal Studies advisor to discuss options for beginning the transition process in one's sophomore year.

There is no application fee for internal transfers. You may submit only one application at a time. Applications submitted after the stated application deadline will be considered only on a space-available basis.

To access the online internal transfer application, log into NYU Albert. Click the "Application Center" link and follow the instructions.


Application deadlines have been established to enable as many internal transfers as possible to pre-register in their new school or college. Applications submitted after the deadline will be considered only on a space available basis.

The deadline for Spring start for internal transfer applicants is November 1. The deadline for Summer and Fall start is March 1.

Financial Aid

If you receive financial aid, please note that, with few exceptions, your current financial aid package will be transferred to your new school or college. Please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (212) 998-4444 with any questions once you are admitted to a new school or college.


Notification for internal transfer applicants occurs on a rolling basis following the application deadline. Applicants will receive decision before the end of the academic semester in which they apply.


Until receiving an official acceptance email from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, internal transfer applicants should proceed with registering at their current school or college for the following semester. If you are granted internal transfer admission, you should contact your new school or college to secure a new registration date as well as more detailed instructions about the registration process. The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will make every attempt to provide the admissions decision in time to complete early registration in your new school or college, but this is not guaranteed.


  • Former NYU students who wish to re-enter the University via a different school or college than the one they attended may use the internal transfer application only if they have not attended another college or university since leaving NYU. Otherwise, they must file the Transfer Application of the Common Application.
  • Internal Transfer applicants and students completing the Liberal Studies Core Program should note that any minor declared in your previous program of study will not carry over to your new program. After consulting with an advisor in your new program, you may re-declare your minor if you are eligible to do so.
  • With the exception of Tisch School of the Arts students, former students who wish to re-enter the same school, college or division they once attended and who did not attend another college or university since attending NYU should log into NYU Albert, and complete the "Undergraduate Application for Readmissions" under the "Application Center." Former Tisch School of the Arts students seeking readmission to Tisch should file the Tisch Readmission Application, available through their department.
