Admissions:

Admission to NYU is highly selective. A large and exceptionally well-qualified applicant pool enables us to enroll a freshman class that is academically talented as well as remarkably diverse. However, there are no set "formulas" that we follow when we review applications. Rather, we actively seek students who have a variety of interests, talents, and goals. We also seek a class that is geographically, socially, ethnically, and economically diverse.

We do not have a separate admissions process for those who have served in the military.
Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at 212-998-4500, if you have questions or would like to speak with an admissions counselor.

The resources on this page are provided by the NYU Student Resource Center.  For questions, except for admissions related, please call 212-998-4411 or click here to send us an email.

The first step in utilizing your education benefits is to find out if you are eligible to receive education benefits through the VA.  Many veterans and active duty personnel can qualify for more than one education benefits program, including those listed below.  Your first steps should be visiting the VA website.   

  • Post-9/11 GI Bill (chapter 33)
  • Montgomery GI Bill (MGIB, chapter 30 and chapter 1606)
  • Reserve Educational Assistance Program (REAP, chapter 1607)
  • Post Vietnam Era Veterans' Educational Assistance program (VEAP, chapter 32).

Depending on your individual circumstances, one of these programs may give you better benefits than the others. While you are the only person who can choose which program meets your needs, we have developed a step-by-step process that may help you compare the different education programs and decide which is best for you.

1.  Determine your best Benefit
2.  Collect Your Paperwork and Information through the VA
3.  Calculate Your Benefits
4.  Compare the Programs
5.  Apply to NYU

Upon meeting the requirements for the Department of Veterans Affairs, the applicant will be given an Authorization for Education (VA Form 22-1905), which must be presented to the Office of the University Registrar, 25 West Fourth Street, 1st Floor, after being accepted into NYU and before registering for course work.

Please note that the Medical School, School of Law and the Stern School of Business have their own processes for veterans.
