Wait List Update #2

On Monday, May 22, we will admit another round of students from our wait list. By Monday evening, we will have admitted a total of 925 students from our wait list.

Included in those offers of admission will be students awarded one of the 70 spaces we have in our new Spring Admission program. These students will arrive in January for the Spring semester. They will stay with us for the Summer term to ensure they are on track to graduate with the Class of 2021.

It is highly unlikely that we will admit anyone from this point forward to our Global Liberal Studies Program, our Meyers College of Nursing, our School of Professional Studies, or our campuses in Abu Dhabi and Shanghai. All of these programs and campuses are at capacity. It is premature to speculate on our other programs at this time but I will provide you with future updates this summer when I have more definitive information to share.

We will provide all of our applicants with a final admission decision no later than August 1. In the interim, please feel free to review our wait list FAQ if you have not done so already.

We respectfully ask that you do not send us any additional materials whatsoever at this time and that you not call or email to inquire about your status on the wait list. There is no additional information we can share at this time.

I realize how anxious you must be about receiving a final decision from us and I cannot thank you enough for your patience. Please know that we appreciate your interest in NYU and we will be in touch to provide closure as soon as possible. 


  • Will transfer applicants receive their decision on the May 22 as well?

  • Good evening Mr. Abbott. With regard to those who have applied as external transfer students, would you have been notified by now if you’ve either been accepted or on the wait list?

  • Does this apply to those who sent in applications for the accelerated 15 month BSN program? I was neither accepted yet or rejected and have not been notified if I was placed on any waitlist. I was told that the last day applicants will be notified was June 15 and I’m wondering if that is still the case?

  • Is there a waitlist for transfer applicants? Would they be notified if placed on a waitlist? Today is the 19th of May. When is the last admission decision going to be sent out?
    Why is it that some decisions are released before otgers?

  • Thanks for keeping us updated. Can you give us an estimate of how many students are still on the waitlist and have the interest e-mails already been sent? Because, as there is a 72 hour deadline for accepting the decision and you said that you will have admitted 925 students by May 22 so, have all the offers been sent to the concerned people?

  • Thank you for this update. As an external transfer applicant for Fall 2017, will I,too be notified of my application status?

  • Hi, do additional materials include final transcripts for waitlisted students?

  • Does the new Spring Admissions Program apply to all schools?

    I question because I’m aware that Stern doesn’t consider people for a transfer in the spring. I am just curious if the same would apply to this program even though I recognize it’s not a transfer program.

  • Is there any way of knowing when a specific program fills up? For example; Tisch acting/musical theater?

  • Is there any space in Tisch drama?

  • How are students notified that they are admitted from the waitlist?

  • Hi!
    I was wondering if there is still room for some waitlisted students in the Tisch School? I would appreciate any information or updates that you have for some of the students waitlisted for the acting program.
    Thank you,
    Claire Layden

  • Hi there, Mr. Abbott. I am a newly admitted student to NYU. I am yet to accept the decision due to lack of any information about my financial aid status and the enrollment deposit. I would really want to know , do I get all that info after I accept the decision or before that point?

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi,

    I was just wondering whether it is possible to know the breakdown of where those 925 students are placed within NYU? For example, how many students have been admitted to Tisch and is it possible to give an estimation of how many more students can be admitted?


  • Are you going to admit more students into Tandon school of Engineering? If yes, by when will students be notified off the waitlist?
