NYU-Poly created the General Studies Program to provide students who do not meet the traditional admissions requirements with an opportunity to obtain a science, engineering, humanities, and management-based education in a supportive environment.
General Studies provides students with a variety of services to ensure their success. These begin with a mandatory summer program prior to the start of their freshman year and continue throughout the academic year with mandatory, weekly tutoring and advisement sessions. Once admitted to NYU-Poly’s General Studies Program, students must successfully participate in the program for one year before they are allowed to transfer to a degree program.
