Whether you’re from Massachusetts, Manchester, or Mumbai, a first-year student or a transfer, there are a few key things you need to do to apply to NYU. But requirements such as standardized testing and English language testing vary for different applicants.
If you're applying to one of the programs listed below, do not complete the Common Application. Visit the links for application instructions:
We recognize that there are a myriad of circumstances that can affect a student’s ability to successfully complete the application process. For students and families affected by natural disasters, circumstances imposed by national governments, or any extreme extenuating circumstances, we want to be as accommodating as possible to avoid additional stress. We encourage any student in these situations to reach out to our office to inform us of the situation so that we can provide you with a recommended course of action. Depending on your situation, you may also follow these recommendations if you intend on applying to NYU.
If your standardized testing results will be delayed for any reason beyond your control, you can self-report your scores by emailing a screenshot of them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will enable us to expedite our review of your application, but you must send official test scores before an offer of admission can be extended.
We will be as flexible as possible when waiting for supporting application materials such as transcripts or teacher evaluations. Certain materials are required to enroll at NYU, so please be in contact with our office should you expect any materials to be delayed.
On a case-by-case basis, we will consider application extensions for any student affected by a natural disaster, circumstances imposed by national governments, or any extreme extenuating circumstances. Please contact your regional admissions officer with a request for an extension before or shortly after our application deadline.
If you have additional questions about NYU’s support for applicants affected by unforeseen circumstances please contact us at email@example.com or +1-212-998-4500.
Visiting student programs are ideal for high school graduates, professionals, and students from other colleges and universities.
