Application Procedures

Candidates for this selective program should show the following qualifications: outstanding academic ability; a record of leadership; experience in Jewish communal service.

For admission to the program, applicants must apply to both the Wagner School and the Graduate School of Arts and Science and specify “NYU Program in Nonprofit Management and Judaic Studies” on their admissions applications. Acceptance to the NYU Program in Nonprofit Management and Judaic Studies is contingent on acceptance to both programs.

The Wagner School admissions process is designed to review the overall potential of applicants in order to identify individuals who will make significant contributions to the leadership of public service organizations. Decisions are not based on one single indicator and include the following criteria: prior academic performance; relevant course work completed; work experience; personal statement; academic or professional letters of reference; personal interview, if requested by the Admissions Committee.

The Skirball Department admissions process is likewise designed to review the overall potential of applicants in order to determine which students will succeed in their studies. Criteria for admission to the Skirball Department include: prior academic performance; personal statement; academic letters of reference; GRE scores.

The deadline for admissions for NYU Wagner is January 15, and the Skirball Department has a deadline of February 15.
