STEP Pre-College Program
The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP)
The Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) at New York University (NYU) is a state-funded innovative pre-college enrichment program for talented and motivated African American, Hispanic/Latino, Alaskan Native or American Indian and economically disadvantaged White or Asian middle and high school students. Our goal is to:
- prepare our students to be competitive so that they are accepted into a selective college of their choice
- encourage and increase the number of historically under-represented minority groups in the science, technology, engineering, math (STEM) careers, health-related fields and licensed professions.
The Summer 2022 STEP Program. STEP will be offered in person on NYU's Washington Square campus—18 Washington Place is home base for the program with classes and other programming taking place in close proximity around the campus.
COVID-19 Vaccination Requirement & Safety Measures
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NYU has in place ongoing public health measures and requirements to ensure the safety of all University community members. As enrolled students in a summer program, all STEP students coming to campus in person must adhere to University guidelines and policies. We have updated this site with the highlights of these policies as of February 2022. More information, including updates as the pandemic evolves, can be found on NYU Returns website. Students will also receive COVID-19-related information via NYU email and at our program orientation. Please check the admissions section of our website for additional information regarding our vaccination requirements, daily screening & mask requirement as well as reporting, isolation, and quarantine requirements.
The STEP Program will be held Mondays-Thursdays 9:00am-3:00pm, from Tuesday, July 5th- Thursday, August 4th.
