Application processes, requirements and deadlines are varied; as are housing and financial aid offerings.

Each program draws on the strengths of NYU’s various schools and colleges. Whether it’s by earning college credit or strengthening artistic or professional skills in an intensive non-credit offering, students will experience college and city life, first hand. Many of our programs allow students to increase their academic portfolio, while others enhance performance and studio art experiences.
