Application Deadlines & Process  

Fall 2019 applications are now available!

We offer an online application to make our application process as easy and convenient as possible. We do not accept paper applications. The non-refundable application fee is $85 for all applications.

Admissions for programs at NYU Wagner 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. Applications that are missing materials are at a profound disadvantage. 

Applicants seeking merit-based aid should complete the application process as early as possible. Applicants to campus-based programs who apply by the December 1 will receive priority consideration for all available merit-based scholarships, fellowships, and assistantships.

Feel free to contact (campus-based programs) or (for Online MHA) if you have any questions about the application process. You are also encouraged to visit us during drop-in advising hours or sign up for an admissions consultation (in-person or via phone/Skype) with one of our counselors.
