Follow these steps to apply as a transfer student to NYU.

Step 1: Start and Complete the Common Application Online

You’ll need:

  • Contact information for a professor or instructor who taught you at the college/university level and will complete your Instructor Evaluation.
  • Contact information for your adviser or a school official who will submit The College Report. This report verifies your previous or current enrollment at a college or university.
  • Contact information for a counselor or school official at the secondary/high school you attended who will complete your Common Application Final Report and submit your secondary/high school transcript. Please note that your transcript (or High School Equivalency Diploma) is required regardless of when you graduated.
  • Nonrefundable $70.00 application fee.

Step 2: Gather and Submit Necessary Documents

You’ll need:

  • English language testing if English is not your native language. 
  • Official college/university transcripts from all institutions you have attended. Have the registrar send them to NYU.
  • A letter of recommendation from your previous guidance counselor if you have been enrolled in a college or university for less than one year. This is preferred, but not required.

Step 3: Review and Complete Any Additional Program Requirements
