When asked to select a school, search for "New York University," you must complete the application, which includes a Writing Supplement, online.

Once you have created an account, you must fill out ALL required information on the Common Application form. The navigation panel on the left will allow you to jump between different sections of the application. Using the "Preview" button at the top of the page, you can print a copy of your application before you submit it to keep for your own records.

Be sure to save your work as you go!

Timing of School Forms

The school officials you identify do not need to wait for you to submit your application before submitting their supporting school forms, but the University will not be able to access their forms until you have submitted your application. Please be sure to use your full, legal name on all documents so that school credentials can be matched to your application.
