Internal Transfers

Internal transfers are current NYU students who want to transfer from one NYU school or college to another. If this applies to you, here’s what you need to know:

Am I eligible to transfer?

You’re eligible if you’re in at least your second semester of consecutive full-time study at your current NYU school or college.

How do I apply?

Log into NYU Albert. Click the "Application Center" link and follow the instructions for the internal transfer application.

Is there an application fee?

No.

When is the deadline?

  • Spring start: November 1
  • Summer or Fall Start: March 1

Note: NYU sets deadlines so as many internal transfers as possible can pre-register in their new school or college. Applications submitted after the deadline are considered on a space-available basis.

Can I re-apply if I’m not accepted or want to transfer again?

You have to wait one academic year to re-apply if your application is denied. If you’ve already switched schools or colleges,you can do so again after one academic year.

I’m in the Core Program in Liberal Studies. What do I need to know?

  • You can transfer to another school/college only after you’ve completed the Core Program
  • Contact your adviser if your future program does not require four years to graduate
  • Start discussing the transition process your sophomore year


I'd like to transfer to Tisch Drama. How do I schedule an audition?

To request an audition date, please send an email to drama.admissions@nyu.edu with the subject line "Internal Transfer - Artistic Review Request."

Will my financial aid change?

In most cases, no — but there are exceptions. Contact the Office of Financial Aid at (212) 998-4444 once you’re admitted to a new school or college.

When will I find out if I’m admitted?

You’ll find out before the end of the academic semester in which you apply.

How should I plan for registration?

  • Before a decision is made, register at your current school/college
  • If accepted, contact your new new school/college for registration date and instructions
  • We’ll try to make an admissions decision in time so you can early register at your new school/college. However, this is not guaranteed.


Will my minor carry over?

Unfortunately, it won’t. Talk with an adviser in your new program to find out if re-declaring your minor is possible.
