GRADUATE READMISSION APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS
|Fall Semester||July 1|
|Spring Semester||December 1|
|Summer Term||April 1|
This application is only to be used for readmission to the graduate program at NYU Gallatin. Gallatin undergraduate students should not use this form (here is a link to the undergraduate application for readmission). Students should apply for readmission when they plan to register for remaining course requirements and/or defend the thesis. Do not apply for readmission if you cannot attend in-person classes and/or defend the thesis.
You should file this application if: (1) you need further course work and/or to defend your thesis in order to complete the MA degree and you are not currently enrolled or (2) you are returning from a leave of absence that has lapsed. Requests for readmission should be received by the following deadlines: August 1 for the fall term, December 1 for the spring term, and April 1 for the summer term.
Please note that readmission is contingent on a number of factors which include but are not limited to: customary time limit to complete the degree as specified in the policies of NYU Gallatin (six years from initial start date); review of course work and its relevance to the current requirements of the degree and applicant’s intended concentration; the availability of space in the program; willingness of the student to enroll in and complete all necessary coursework and requirements, including additional classes, projects and assignments as defined by the current degree requirements; availability of advisers to supervise the student’s thesis work. Students who have been absent for more than three years from the last term of enrollment are advised to contact email@example.com before filing this application.
As you begin this application, be prepared to explain why you left NYU Gallatin and outline how you intend to finish your degree to the readmissions committee. If you are no longer in touch with your primary adviser, please also be ready to suggest faculty whose work aligns with your own and who could serve as an adviser as you finish up your degree.
Evaluation of the Application for Readmission
Applications for readmission to the Gallatin MA Program will be reviewed by a faculty committee. Students’ prior coursework will be evaluated to determine relevance to the current requirements of the degree and applicant’s proposed concentration and thesis. Graduate coursework completed more than six years prior may be excluded from counting toward the MA degree.
Readmitted students will receive a letter that will:
- confirm their semester of readmission
- articulate the remaining degree requirements that must be fulfilled
- stipulate a deadline for completing all requirements
- provide instructions for registration in the semester of readmission
Students who are readmitted must fulfill the degree requirements that are in effect when they are readmitted, unless their offer of readmission states otherwise.
