Freshman Year Honors
Freshman Scholars are selected to participate in the Steinhardt Honors Program based on an outstanding high school record of academic achievement, leadership, and service. They are expected to maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and to participate actively in all honors activities.
The Dean's Global Honors Seminar is the centerpiece of the undergraduate honors program during freshman year. These seminars combine a semester-long, credit-bearing course at NYU's founding campus in New York City with a research-oriented, international travel component lasting 7-10 days.
You may participate in one of the Fall semester seminars, which include January travel, or one of the Spring semester seminars, which include travel during NYU's spring break in March.
