Admissions at NYU is conducted on a deadline-driven timetable. Once an application is submitted, it will be reviewed for completeness and forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review. We review all applications as is, however applications that are missing materials are at a profound disadvantage. The Admissions Committee begins reviewing fall applications in December of the prior year. Spring application review begins in September of the prior fall. Master's applicants receive a decision by e-mail according to the Notification Timetable. NYU Wagner will continue to accept applications after the deadline on a space available basis.
Merit-Based Financial Aid
