A message from the Director of Admissions regarding the status of the waitlist

July 2, 2018

​As always, we appreciate the patience you have shown with our waitlist process. As of June 29 we have decided to close our waitlist and will not be making any additional offers of admission for fall 2018 or spring 2019 admission to first year applicants.

We felt it was important to communicate this as soon as the decision was made – in this case, well in advance of our original August 1 deadline – so that students on our waitlist could move forward in making alternate plans for the coming academic year with confidence. If you were on our waitlist, you should have received an email regarding this change on Friday, June 29.

Of course, students who were not offered admission this cycle should feel welcome to submit a new application to NYU in the future. Please see our website for more information about transfer admission to our New York campus. Note that neither our Abu Dhabi or Shanghai campuses accept transfer applications.
