Is NYU application deadline already over?

I want to apply to several universities that are famous all over the world and that’s why I ask about the NYU application deadline. I don’t know the NYU graduate programs well, I’d be grateful if you give me some insight on them. I hope I won’t miss the NYU admissions process this year.

It is great that you have chosen to apply to study at well-known educational institutions because they owe their notoriety precisely to the fact that they provide high-quality education to their students in extraordinary facilities and their students have usually a remarkable professional success after they graduate. NYU is one of those popular universities. Nonetheless, since studying at those famous universities brings a high number of benefits, getting admitted into one of them tends to be very difficult.

The deadline for NYU application this year is November 1 for Early Decision I. And January 1 is the application deadline for Early Decision II and Regular Decision. Nevertheless, those dates can be different if you apply to an artistic program. In that case, you will need to show your creative portfolio or have an audition and, since this process takes more time, you will need to submit your application one month earlier than the deadline.

It is possible to apply for Early Decision or for Regular Decision for a given class. The instructions and required materials are the same for both to all three of NYU’s degree-granting campuses in New York, Shanghai, and Abu Dhabi. However, if you do not get to be accepted with Early Decision, you will not be allowed to apply for Regular Decision since the admission standards of this university for early decision and regular decision are the same.

There are more than 400 graduate programs at NYU. It is important to point out that each NYU school that offers graduate programs has its own admissions process. You will need to contact the school of your interest to learn more about its admission process. Visit this page  to read the list of schools and the links to find the office address of each one of them.

The number of applicants to NYU and its admission rates vary each year. According to the website of this university, for the class of 2021, the total rate of admissions at NYU was approximately 28% and the rate of early decision candidates admitted was approximately 38% ( ).

I felt that anxiety of counting the days till the deadline for application to the university (or universities) of our choice. We get very nervous, even if we know the deadline some months in advance and have all the necessary time to submit a correct application. But I think that we should stay calm and just follow each university guidelines for their application process. Of course, it’s better if you do it in advance. But in my case, I didn’t have much time before the deadline for admissions at NYU and that didn’t discourage me. I went on and every day I took a step to get nearer to NYU: I collected all my school documents and filled in carefully the university forms for new students and I can say that I submitted the best application I could. It seems it worked since I was informed that I got admitted.

I’m already studying at NYU and I can recommend it to everyone. It’s been a wonderful experience. The first thing to do is to call or send an e-mail to the university to ask for the requirements to get admitted there (cause they may be different than they were before). Some people just ask about the NYU application deadline and forget that there are some documents that need to be prepared in advance to attach them to their application. I have friends in different NYU graduate programs, and they’re fully satisfied with their studies. Education at NYU is high-quality.
