As a relatively new university, NYU Shanghai may not be listed in some graduate school application systems. When completing online application forms, if New York University Shanghai is not available as an option on the dropdown menu, please select New York University as your institution of matriculation.
This official letter issued by the Registrar's Office clarifies NYU Shanghai's status, accreditation, language of instruction, and other institutional aspects. Download the PDF version and attach it to your transcript when you apply to graduate schools. This letter is especially beneficial if the online application does not include NYU Shanghai as a school option.
Graduate schools should not require English proficiency exam scores from NYU Shanghai students because our institution's language of instruction is English. NYU Shanghai is accredited in the United States and our students receive a degree from NYU. Check with graduate schools well in advance of applying to verify their English language proficiency requirements. You may provide them with the Statement of University Status to explain our accreditation.
Some schools may still require English proficiency scores even after reviewing NYU Shanghai's Statement of University Status. In such cases, please visit one of the below websites for information about test centers and test dates, so you can schedule an exam before application deadlines.
