Undergraduate Admissions

For High School Students

Choosing the right college for your undergraduate studies is hard work. We’re here to help. We offer many events throughout the year to help you learn more about our degree programs, faculty, and students so that you can decide if NYU, the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and our undergraduate degree programs are right for you.

Steinhardt Connection

Many high school students visit colleges during their junior year to explore their options and find the college that fits just right. Designed expressly for high school juniors (rising seniors) and their parents, our Steinhardt Connection initiative combines all-NYU information sessions and campus tours with informal luncheons with Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development faculty and staff from our undergraduate majors. Steinhardt Connection luncheons are held once a month from March through August. Click here for dates and reservations.

Open Houses

Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development on-campus Open Houses in September and October give you a chance to meet current students face-to-face, learn about the guiding principles of NYU Steinhardt, and hear directly from our faculty about our undergraduate degree programs. Visit Undergraduate Admissions to learn more.

Visit the NYU Campus

Visiting NYU's campus in the heart of Greenwich Village is a great way to learn more about NYU.  Participate in an information session, then head out on a campus tour led by undergraduate students who are Admissions Ambassadors.  You'll see many of the major classroom buildings, facilities, and campus hot spots, and you'll have a chance to hear directly from students about their own experiences.

And more!

Each Fall, NYU and the Steinhardt School offer some special on-campus events for high school students who want to learn more about:

  • Art
    Portfolio Day
  • Music and Educational Theatre
    Audition Day
  • Open Houses for All Academic Programs

Fill out the Undergraduate Admissions Inquiry Form, and we'll be sure to notify you by email and snail mail about these special events.

We hope you'll visit and experience for yourself the excitement and energy that is NYU and The Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development!
