Admissions Deadlines

Please note: The dates below indicate the timeline for students wishing to enter in September 2014. NYUAD does not accept applications for spring/January entry at this time.

Each applicant must select Early Decision I, Early Decision II, or Regular Decision, which will apply to all New York University campuses, programs, and schools for which you wish to be considered. You cannot opt to apply Early Decision I for one NYU campus or program, and Early Decision II or Regular Decision for another. Early Decision I applicants who are not offered admission may not re-apply as Early Decision II or Regular Decision applicants in the same application cycle, whether to the same or a different campus or program.

You will be released from the binding Early Decision Agreement if you are offered admission to anything other than your primary campus, program, or school of interest.
