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, Paris, or Washington, DC. 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 degree programs at the College of Arts and Science or the Gallatin School of Individualized Study, or in Liberal Studies' own Global Liberal Studies. Students may also transition to specific liberal arts programs within NYU's Polytechnic School of Engineering; Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development; or Tisch School of the Arts; or degree programs in NYU's College of Nursing, School of Professional Studies, or Silver School of Social Work. In order to transition between programs, students must be in good academic standing and meet specific program requirements in their prospective major or school.
