Transfer of academic credits is at the discretion of the School of Engineering and the individual departments within it. Courses must respond to a student’s concentration and fulfill department major study requirements to be credited to the NYU transcript and counted for Tandon requirements.
Students must get signatures from the corresponding academic department of the course. For example, math courses need approval from the Mathematics department, humanities courses need approval from the Technology, Culture & Society department, and civil courses from the Civil Engineering department. Departmental contact information can be found online. Students must then get approval from their major academic adviser, the Office of Global Services (if international), and the Office of Academic Affairs.
Students are required to consult with their academic advisor to formulate a detailed academic plan and course load for every semester of study abroad. The course preapproval form must be filled out prior to departure. This step is essential in aiding the proper transfer of academic credits earned abroad. For current information on courses, please refer to the host university’s published materials.
At the end of each academic term of study abroad, students are required to provide an official transcript to the Office of Academic Affairs:
ATTN: Sara-Lee Ramsawak
Office of Academic Affairs
5 Metrotech Center LC230
Brooklyn, NY 11201
While abroad, students must remain in contact with their academic advisor and the Office of Academic Affairs and keep them apprised of their academic progress and any changes in their academic plan.
Students must present proper travel documents in order to be eligible for study abroad.
Students are responsible for checking with the host country's consulate to determine whether they need a visa or other entry requirement. Please remember that the entry requirement for U.S. citizens may be different than for lawful permanent residents, or citizens of other countries residing in the United States. For additional information or assistanc on visa requirements, please contact the Office of Global Services.
For additional information, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Academics.
Students are required to complete the online application and depending on the program, supplementary application materials required by the host academic university or program.
Students going abroad must familiarize themselves with conditions in the country to which they are traveling. The Department of State provides current information about country conditions, and how they may impact Americans traveling abroad. Consular Affairs also contains information about entry regulations, health conditions, crime and security, as well as the locations and addresses of consulates and embassies. If you have questions or need additional information please contact the Office for Undergraduate Academics.
