Early Admission for NYU Steinhardt CSD Majors

The Department of Communicative Sciences and Disorders is pleased to announce an early admissions process for current students in NYU Steinhardt's CSD undergraduate program who are interested in applying to the MS program in Communicative Sciences and Disorders. Understanding that the application process for graduate school can be overwhelming at times, this option is offered as a way to assist current NYU Steinhardt CSD undergraduate students in their planning by providing them with an earlier decision on their status in our CSD masters program.

The application deadline for early admissions is November 15th. Students who select this option will be informed of the admission decision by December 15. Students who are given early acceptance into the program will still have until April 15th to submit their deposit and are not obligated to attend NYU. Financial aid packages will not be fully available until mid march and require that applicants fill out all financial aid documents by the posted deadline.

Please note that students are not required to participate in the early admissions process, and those students who prefer more time to complete their application are welcome to submit it on the regular admission deadline date of January 6th.

Class Standing and Dean's List

A student’s class standing is determined by the cumulative number of credits they have earned:

  • FR = Freshman (0-31 credits)
  • SO = Sophomore (32-63 credits)
  • JR = Junior (64-95 credits)
  • SR = Senior (96+ credits)

The Dean's List is an honor roll of undergraduate students achieving high scholarship each semester.

At the end of the fall and spring terms, the Dean's List is compiled for undergraduate students who have maintained a term grade point average of 3.7 or better in a program of study of at least 12 credits in the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development.The Dean's List is an honor roll of undergraduate students achieving high scholarship each semester.

Grades of F, I, P, N, or R disqualify students for inclusion on the Dean's List for the semester in which they receive these grades.

Grade Point Average (GPA) Calculation

The GPA determines the student’s academic standing within the school and whether or not the student is making academic progress. The GPA also determines, in part, eligibility for the Dean’s Honor List and Latin Honors. For more information on the GPA scale and how to compute the GPA, please click here.
