Submit a 250-500-word statement explaining how the external course(s) and/or program relates to your concentration and enhances your education. IMPORTANT: If your external study credits will cause you to exceed the transfer credit limit (64 credits), your statement should address this, and you must file a separate petition through Gallatin (contact Gallatin Office of Academic Advising for details). Undergraduates: if you intend to pursue external study during your final 32 credits, when you are required to be in residence at NYU, your statement should address why you are petitioning to be waived from this requirement.
