The application review is a holistic process that considers the complete academic record, unique program requirements, and student essay. It is suggested that applicants have earned a GPA of 3.0; students with lower GPA's are encouraged to provide insight to their academic goals in the personal statement.
Eligibility & Requirements
- Registered as a full time student at an accredited US college or university
- Completed freshman year of study (two full semesters) and will be 18 or older prior to beginning of term away
- Suggested GPA of 3.0 or higher; students with lower GPA's are encouraged to provide insight to their academic goals in the personal statement
- Incomplete (I) grades on transcript must be resolved before an admissions decision can be made
- Students who have completed at least one year of college but are not presently enrolled or who have graduated are also eligible to apply; however, priority is given to students currently matriculated
- Students currently on leave of absence, academic probation or disciplinary probation are generally ineligible; exceptions will be made on a case-by-case basis
All students interested in applying to study at an NYU Global Academic Center must complete the online application which includes an agreement to the NYU Study Away Standard. All applicants are required to include three different choices of locations for study and every attempt will be made to match students with one of their top locations.
Any courses with an incomplete (I) must be resolved before the application can be reviewed. At the end of the term preceding the applicant's intended semester away, NYU Global Programs will re-review the student's academic transcript and reserves the right to rescind admission pending that final review. Should a student's admission be revoked as a result of this review, New York University is not responsible for refunding any expenses incurred in preparation for the intended semester away.
Students who apply to study away during their first semester in a new NYU school (internal transfers and LS transitioning students) should acknowledge the University policy that requires students to spend their first semester on campus in New York. Exceptions to that policy are granted on a case by case basis.
Given their unique nature, membership in a global campus community requires mutual respect, consideration, and concern for the well-being of others as well as a significant degree of personal integrity and maturity. Students whose prior behavior has been determined through the University student conduct process to have been disruptive to the University community and/or antithetical to these qualities may be precluded from participation in the study away experience. Accordingly, please be advised that information concerning student conduct actions is made available to the New York University Global Academic Centers and may be taken into consideration in the process of reviewing a student’s application to participate. Students who have been placed on University disciplinary probation or on deferred suspension from University housing are ineligible to participate in study away during the period of their probation and/or deferred status. Students who have been suspended, withdrawn, or dismissed from the University and those who have been dismissed or suspended from University housing are permanently ineligible to enroll at the Global Academic Centers.
Exceptions to this policy will be reviewed on a case by case basis and may be waived if the student is returning from an approved personal leave (examples: fulfill military service, conduct research, employment, etc). Interested students should first contact their School Advising Dean's office and the Office of Global Programs before applying to study away to more fully understand how the policy may apply to them.
