Gallatin may award advanced standing credit for standardized tests such as Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and Maturity Certificate Examinations, and also for college courses taken while the student was in high school. Please see below for limitations and a full explanation regarding each type of credit.
For students who entered Gallatin in the summer of 2009 or later, advanced standing credit will not be automatically posted to the NYU transcript upon admission. Instead, at the end of the sophomore year, and after consulting with their adviser, students may elect to post these advanced standing credits.
The total number of advanced standing credits a student may receive cannot exceed 32.
Once a student elects to post advanced standing credits on the NYU transcript, they will become a part of the permanent academic record and cannot be removed.
Advanced standing credit will count toward the total earned credits for graduation and may accelerate the student's time to graduation. Students should consider both the academic and financial effect of applying advanced standing credit. Since the IAPC, rationale and colloquium deadlines may come sooner than originally expected as the result of applying advanced standing credits, students should consult their class adviser before submitting this form. If students are receiving financial aid, be aware that they may not be eligible for aid in excess of 128 credits. For more information about financial aid and advanced standing credit, contact Gallatin's Office of Student Services (212-998-7378, email@example.com)
Students who have general questions about advanced standing credit should consult their class adviser. Students who need contact information about their class adviser should contact the Gallatin Office of Academic Advising at (212-998-7320).
