  • Freshman Admission Requirements and Procedures

    Step 1: Start and Complete the Common Application Online
    The Common Application is required for students applying to any or all of NYU's three degree-granting campuses in New York, Abu Dhabi, or Shanghai. You'll be able to choose your campus(es) and program(s) of interest on the NYU-specific page of the Common Application.

    You’ll need:

    • Contact information for the counselor or other school representatives who will complete your Common Application School Report and submit your official high school transcript.
    • Contact information for one teacher (or two, maximum) who will complete the Teacher Evaluation form.
    • Nonrefundable $80.00 application fee. Students who are unable to pay the application fee can request a fee waiver.

    Step 2: Gather and Submit Necessary Documents
    Depending on your educational background and the program you are applying to, you will need to provide the following:
    • Official score reports 
    • An audition or portfolio for specific artistic program applicants to the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and Tisch School of the Arts. For applicants to these programs, testing is optional and a required audition or portfolio can be submitted in place of standardized testing: 
      • Steinhardt requires an audition or portfolio for all applicants to the Music Department with the exception of Educational Theatre, and a portfolio for those applying to Studio Art.
      • Tisch requires an audition or portfolio for applicants to all programs with the exception of Interactive Media Arts. 
      • For programs that require an audition or portfolio we strongly recommend you submit your application one month in advance to ensure ample time to prepare your audition or portfolio.
    • English language testing if you have not completed at least 3 years of study where English is the sole language of instruction and English is not your native language.
    • Official transcripts of all college work that you have received academic credit for.
    • The Common Application Mid Year Report with updated transcript. This should show your first semester senior year grades. Have your counselor submit the report by March 1 through the Common Application.

  • Transferee Admission Requirements and Procedure

    The Common Application is required for students applying as transfers to our New York campus. Please ensure that you complete the Common Application for Transfer Students rather than First-Years.

    You’ll need:

    • Official secondary/high school transcript (or General Education Diploma) with graduation date, regardless of when you graduated.
    • Official college/university transcripts from all institutions you have attended. 
    • The Common Application College Report,  which verifies that you are in good standing at your previous or current college or university.
    • The Common Application Instructor Evaluation form and letter of recommendation completed by a college professor, or a direct supervisor if it has been more than a year since you were last enrolled in classes.
    • Many of our programs have additional requirements, which may include an audition, portfolio, or prerequisite courses. Please carefully review the requirements for your school, college, or program.
    • Nonrefundable $80.00 application fee.
    Other Considerations:
    • Standardized Testing must be submitted if you have not already completed at least one year of full-time study at a college or university or 32 semester credits of part-time study at the point of application. Certain programs do not require testing, so be sure to review our policy in detail.
    • An audition or portfolio for art and music programs at the Steinhardt School and Tisch School of the Arts.
    • English Language Testing must be submitted If you have not completed at least three years of study where English is the sole language of instruction or English is not your native language.
    • A letter of recommendation may be submitted from your previous guidance counselor if you’ve been enrolled in a college or university for less than one year. This is preferred, but not required.
    • NYU reserves the right to request the Common Application Midterm Report from any transfer student, even though it is not required.
