Returning to NYU

If you were once formally enrolled at NYU, we’re glad you are interested in returning. Here's what you need to know to apply as a readmission applicant:

To apply, don’t use the Common Application. Instead, follow these steps:

  • Log into NYUAlbert;
  • Click "Application Center";
  • Locate the "Undergraduate Application for Readmission" line and click "create"; then
  • Follow the on-screen instructions and submit the form. You’ll receive a confirmation email.

Depending on when you want to return to NYU, here are the application deadlines:

  • Fall: August 1
  • Spring: December 1
  • Summer: April 1

Note: If you’re unable to log into NYUAlbert, email for assistance.

Here are a few other things to consider:

  • If you’re currently on a leave of absence for the semester from NYU, talk with your academic adviser before submitting a new application.
  • If you have matriculated at another institution while you were away, you must apply for readmission using the Common Application in order to return to NYU.
  • If you’re an international student, try to complete the application process one to two months in advance of the deadlines to give you time to secure the appropriate visa for re-entry into the United States.
