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 may be physical, emotional, and/or financial hardships that can be brought upon by natural disasters. For students and families affected by a natural disaster, we want to be as accommodating as possible to avoid additional stress. Depending on your situation you may follow these recommendations if you intend on applying to NYU.
If your standardized testing results will be delayed because of a natural disaster you can self-report your scores by emailing a screenshot of them to us at email@example.com. 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.
If you wanted to apply Early Decision I but need additional time, we encourage you to consider Early Decision II instead. There is no difference between Early Decision I and Early Decision II aside from the deadline and the date of your notification. You will still be able to indicate NYU as your top choice and be given full consideration for any campuses, schools, and/or programs of interest. Learn more about Early Decision at NYU.
On a case-by-case basis, we will consider application extensions for any student impacted by a natural disaster. Please contact your regional admissions officer, if you are able to, with a request for an extension before our application deadline.
If you have additional questions about NYU’s support for applicants affected by a natural disaster please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or +1-212-998-4500.
Visiting student programs are ideal for high school graduates, professionals, and students from other colleges and universities.
