Admission is limited to full-time students beginning in September only. A student matriculating in the Tisch School of the Arts must be admitted at two levels: (1) as a student within a department of specialization or major and (2) as a student of New York University. Admission standards that pertain to the University in general can be found in on the NYU Undergraduate Admissions web site and should be read in conjunction with the department's standards.
An undergraduate candidate in dance must submit an application to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Please visit the NYU Undergraduate Admissions web site to download an application or to apply online.
Final decisions of acceptance depend on completing both departmental audition requirements and New York University admissions requirements.
Advanced Standing for Undergraduates
Transfer credit for advanced standing may be accepted for a limited number of academic courses in which the final grade was C or better and that have been taken at an accredited college or university. Such credit may be applied toward requirements on a course-for-course basis. Credit in the liberal arts areas (e.g., social sciences, natural sciences, humanities) will be accepted in accordance with University guidelines for acceptable transfer credit.
Transfer credit will usually not be accepted for courses taken elsewhere in the candidate's field of professional training. The maximum amount of transfer credit normally acceptable is 32 points of general education. Exceptions to this may be made only at the discretion of the Chair of the Department of Dance. Credit is not awarded for Advanced Placement.
