As a student who was offered space on our admissions waitlist, you may have several questions about how to move forward in your college search and when to expect a final admissions answer from NYU. Please review the answers to our most frequently asked questions below.

If you wish to remain on our waitlist, you must complete the online form included in the NYU Applicant Portal where you received your waitlist offer. We will assume that any student who does not respond to our waitlist offer will be enrolling at another college or university, and will no longer be eligible for admissions consideration.  

Please note: We do not have an appeal process of any kind, and we cannot reconsider your application prior to May 1. If we are able to offer you a space at NYU, you will need to respond quickly to our offer of admission and financial aid (if applicable). Please refer to your NYU decision email for specific deadline information.

Thank you for your patience and, regardless of the ultimate outcome with regard to your application at NYU, we wish you the best as you begin college next year!
