Given the technical issues many applicants, counselors, and school officials have experienced in navigating their Common Application accounts and online forms, NYU will extend its Early Decision deadline to November 8 at 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time) for students interested in our New York and Shanghai campuses as their primary campuses of interest.
Due to the urgency in extending invitations and making travel arrangements for our Candidate Weekend in Abu Dhabi, applicants who want to be considered for Early Decision I admission to NYU Abu Dhabi must still meet our initial November 1 deadline.
For all applicants unable to meet our Early Decision I deadline, NYU offers a second round of Early Decision available to applicants for whom NYU is their first choice. That Early Decision II deadline is January 1.
NOTE: Applicants to our creative and performing arts programs in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and the Tisch School of the Arts must still adhere to our November 1 deadline, as those programs require an artistic review process where our faculty use the month of November to review audition and portfolio results before reporting back to the admissions committee.
NOTE 2: Our financial aid deadline for Early Decision has not been extended. Applicants who want to be considered for financial aid – including all scholarships and grants – must complete the CSS Financial Aid PROFILE by November 15 at 11:59pm (Eastern Standard Time) to be considered for such aid. A reminder that if your parents are divorced, separated, or not married, your non-custodial parent (the parent you do not live with) must complete a Non-Custodial Parent PROFILE as well by November 15. If you do not have any contact your non-custodial parent, you can request a PROFILE waiver request form on our website. Each of these forms are due no later than November 15.
