Transfer Applicants

Criteria

Transfer credits may be awarded if they were:

  • Earned for graduate credit;
  • Earned with a B or better;
  • Earned prior to matriculation at NYU Wagner (including Wagner course credits while matriculated elsewhere at NYU);
  • Earned within five years of matriculation at NYU Wagner;
  • Earned at an accredited institution of established reputation; and
  • Not applied toward another degree.

Transfer credits that meet these conditions must be approved by the faculty and deemed relevant to your NYU Wagner degree program. Any transfer credits must be approved prior to the start of your second term and are transferred on a credit-for-credit basis.

Decisions regarding transfer credits and waivers are not made prior to matriculation.
