Admissions Process Policies

Additional Submissions by Waitlisted Applicants

The Admissions Committee reserves the right to make final decisions on waitlisted applications prior to receiving additional information. Materials received after a final decision will not affect that decision.

Application Fee Waivers

U.S. military members or U.S. veterans who have served active duty, Teach for America and Teach for India program alumni, and Forté MBALaunch alumnae are eligible for application fee waivers. Just prior to submitting your application, email your request for an application fee waiver to and include documentation of service.

Once an application fee is paid by an applicant, it is non-refundable. Please be sure to contact prior to paying your application fee.

Applying Prior to Completing your Undergraduate Degree

If you submit your application prior to the conferral of your bachelor's degree or equivalent, we will accept and evaluate your application. This will not delay the evaluation of your application. If an offer of admission is made, it will be contingent upon the conferral of your degree prior to enrollment. An undergraduate degree is required to enroll in the MBA program.

Applying to Other NYU Stern MBA Programs

You may apply to only one NYU Stern MBA program per start term (Full-time, Langone Part-time, Executive or TRIUM Executive). If not admitted, you can apply to any NYU Stern MBA program for any subsequent start term.

Change of Contact Information

The Admissions Committee communicates with applicants primarily through email. It is the applicant’s responsibility to update NYU Stern immediately with a new email address. Changes to your email should be made on the application status page. Failure to update your email may result in you missing key information, which could jeopardize your admission and/or place in the class. 

NYU Stern is not responsible for any technological issues (including email filters, etc.) that prevent applicants from receiving our communications.

Changing Status After Enrollment: Part-time to Full-time

NYU Stern MBA Academic Affairs does not permit students to switch to the Full-time MBA program once they are enrolled in the Langone Part-time MBA program. Please carefully consider which program is best suited to your goals prior to applying.

Changing Status Prior to Decision or Enrollment: Part-time to Full-time

You should apply for the program (Full-time or Langone Part-time) in which you want to enroll. However, if circumstances require you to request a change in status either before receiving a decision or after being admitted and prior to enrolling, please submit a written request to To request a change in status, you are required to withdraw your original application and, if already admitted, forfeit your place in the Langone Part-time class. You will then need to submit a new application to the Full-time program. Your Full-time application will be evaluated along with the rest of the Full-time applicant pool, and there is no guarantee of admission. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to release a decision at any time during the application process. Any items submitted to NYU Stern become the sole property of NYU Stern and will not be returned, duplicated or transferred.

Deferred Admission/Leave of Absence

NYU Stern does not grant admission deferrals. If you are admitted and decide not to enroll, you may re-apply for a future term. Leaves of absence are not granted to students who find that they cannot begin the program in the semester for which they were admitted or who cannot successfully complete one course in that first semester (obtaining a grade of D or better).

Enrollment Deposit

After admission, a non-refundable enrollment deposit is required to secure your place in NYU Stern's MBA program. This enrollment deposit will not be refunded for any reason.

Previous MBA

Applicants who already hold an MBA degree are eligible to apply.

Statement of Certification

Before submitting an application, all applicants are required to read and electronically sign the Statement of Certification. NYU Stern reserves the right to contact appropriate sources to ensure the accuracy of all the information you have provided. NYU Stern validates the accuracy of application information with the appropriate sources. You must promptly inform NYU Stern if any information changes. NYU Stern may revoke your admission if we learn that you have misrepresented and/or omitted information during or after the admissions process, or that you have engaged in behavior showing a serious lack of judgment or integrity prior to or after admission. If your admission is revoked, you will not be eligible to re-apply to any NYU Stern MBA program.

Verification Process

NYU Stern has retained Re Vera Services to verify the information included in the applications of all admitted MBA applicants who plan to enroll at Stern.
