ADVANCED STANDING: CREDIT BY EXAMINATION OR COLLEGE COURSEWORK

Advanced standing credits are college credits earned before entering NYU, either through college-level work or through examination. NYU college credit may be awarded for satisfactory work completed in a few different ways:
Satisfactory work completed at another accredited college or university
Credit by examination, which includes AP, IB, and the results of some foreign maturity examinations
HOW TO GET YOUR CREDITS POSTED: STEPS TO FOLLOW
Global Liberal Studies students interested in having their work reviewed for possible NYU college credit should follow the following steps.
CREDIT FOR COLLEGE LEVEL COURSEWORK
Credit may be awarded for satisfactory work completed at another accredited college or university. In granting advanced standing, the following are considered: the content, complexity, and grading standards of courses taken elsewhere; individual grades and grade averages attained by the applicant; the suitability of courses taken elsewhere for the program of study chosen for NYU; and the degree of preparation that completed courses provide for more advanced study at NYU.
To be considered for credit, students must follow the steps posted under Advanced Standing as well as send their official college transcript for review to the Liberal Studies Advising Center, 726 Broadway, 6th Floor, New York, NY 10003-2339 [Phone: (212) 998-7269].
