Admission to the Core Program is highly selective and based on careful consideration by the NYU Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee also offers admission to the Core Program to a select group of freshman applicants to other NYU schools. Students may begin their NYU studies in New York City, or, on a space-available basis, they may be awarded the opportunity to begin their NYU studies at one of our global entry campuses in Florence, London, or Paris. Transfer applicants are not eligible for admission.

Students who begin as freshmen in the Core Program continue as juniors at one of NYU's Liberal Arts bachelor's programs: the College of Arts and Science, Global Liberal Studies, or the Gallatin School of Individualized Study. Students may also enroll in specific liberal arts programs housed within other NYU schools and colleges, such as the Tisch School of the Arts and the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development, or degree programs in the Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism and Sports Management, the Silver School of Social Work, and the College of Nursing. In order to transition seamlessly between programs, students must meet specific program requirements and be in good academic standing at the end of the sophomore year.
