Pre-Approved Course Equivalences

Courses at the Shanghai campus are being reviewed on an on-going basis to determine their equivalency to New York and Abu Dhabi courses. Once a course between Shanghai and New York or Shanghai and Abu Dhabi is deemed as equivalent, students are able to use either of the courses to satisfy prerequisite and/or degree requirements without further approval needed. There is italicized text before the description of each course that explains how the course counts towards a specific NYU New York/NYU Abu Dhabi major or program. If a course does not have equivalency information, you should speak to your department and advisor to determine how the course might count towards your degree.
