External Study

Gallatin students who believe their concentrations would benefit from study outside of NYU’s global network may seek approval to take courses at other institutions while matriculated at Gallatin. Students either take one or more classes at another US institution in the same semester that they take classes at NYU, or they take all their classes outside NYU in a given semester. Semesters spent entirely externally may take place in the US or abroad, though abroad programs are preferred.

Students must be pre-approved for such external study by submitting this application, and approval is by no means guaranteed.

Priority Deadlines

  • Fall: April 1
  • Spring: November 1
  • Summer: March 1

Students who meet the priority application deadlines will receive a decision within 10 business days of submission. Students who submit an application after these dates may experience a delay in obtaining a decision.
