Please review Next Stop NYU for important dates in May.

early July Finalizing Your Admission All final college (including spring semester grades) and high school transcripts (including a date of graduation) should have been received by NYU.

You must ensure that your high school sends BOTH your final high school transcript (with final spring grades) AND your date of graduation to NYU:

1) At most U.S. high schools, the final transcript lists both the spring grades and the date (day, month, and year) of a student's graduation, so submitting the final transcript alone fulfills both parts of this requirements.

2) However, if you are from a high school outside the United States, NYU finds that many schools do not list the date of graduation on the transcript. In these cases, you must have your high school send a separate letter/certificate on school letterhead that verifies your date of graduation in addition to the final transcript.
early July Deadline: Pay Deposit The deadline to pay your deposit to attend NYU Stern is today.
July 3 Deadline: Meet with an Academic Adviser All transfer students should have met with an academic adviser and completed registration for fall courses by this date.
