Frequently Asked Questions
Transfer of Completed Credits
Due to the strict requirements of the programs at NYU-Poly, it should be noted that not all credits may be accepted in the transfer process. If offered admission, you will receive both an official acceptance letter, as well as a tentative statement of transfer credit. Your courses will be evaluated by the faculty for transfer credit eligibility. Courses eligible for transfer must be taken at an accredited college within the last eight years and you must have earned a minimum grade of ‘C’ or higher. Students are also requested to submit their college catalog and/or syllabus, describing courses under consideration for transfer credit.
Please note that NYU-Poly defines undergraduate semester credits based on the number of 50-minute periods scheduled each week during one semester. Normally, one credit signifies a minimum of either one 50-minute period of class work, or three 50-minute periods of undergraduate laboratory, over a period of 14 weeks, in addition to a final exam period. In a few cases, more time per credit is given. The final examination period is an integral part of the semester.
If you choose to enroll, you must forward along your final transcript, as well as any testing results for placement and course exemption consideration.
Second Bachelor's Degree in Engineering
If you are applying to NYU-Poly as a second bachelor degree candidate, you must file a transfer application. It is highly recommended that the applicant have already completed calculus, physics, and chemistry to help the admissions committee gauge the student's preparedness for the NYU-Poly curriculum. Please note that a maximum of 64 credits may transfer toward the NYU-Poly degree, and that all transfer credit is pending faculty approval. Additionally, a transfer applicant for engineering with a bachelor's of science in either science or mathematics ought to consult with the graduate admissions department to determine if a second bachelors is required or whether or not a set of prerequisites would qualify for admission into a master's program.
