Bridge Course Structure

Program Structure

Students will participate in interactive online modules, live webinars, assignments, and tests. Each week, the professors host a virtual lecture and discussion session. A recording of each lecture will be posted to the course site for those who cannot attend, and the Professors or TA’s will host virtual office hours. A schedule for the live webinars/meetings will be established by the course instructor within the first week of the course.

Time Commitment

The program is offered in two options, a 21-week course that requires approximately 30-40 hours per week, and a 28-week course that requires approximately 20-30 hours per week. It is suggested that a student who is planning to work while enrolled in the Bridge program take the 24-week course.

Defer/Withdraw/Swap Policies

To learn more about requesting a deferral, withdrawal, or duration swap, visit your portal. Here, you will find all of our policies outlined in detail.

Tuition and Payment

By accepting your offer of admission you agree to pay a charge of $1,850.00 USD in full by the given deadline/s specified. Once you accept your offer, and your enrollment has been processed, you will receive instructions on how to pay your bill in the amount of $1,850.00 USD. This charge is payable through NYU’s secure Student Information System, or through our International Student Payment system, and can only be made in the form of an electronic check and cannot be paid using a credit or debit card. 

Students who were admitted to a previous semester, and who deferred to a future semester, or withdrew and re-applied to a future semester, owe the cost of tuition being charged for the current semester, which may be higher than the cost that was being charged for the semester they deferred or withdrew from. No tuition from a previous semester will be credited to the current semester. Those who deferred prior to the Defer & Withdraw deadline for a previous semester, should have been refunded, and will need to submit the tuition in full for the current semester.

The Tandon Bridge program requires that payment is made in full by the published deadlines and does not offer options for a payment plan. 

In 2024, the NYU Tandon Bridge program is offering a limited number of scholarships to support qualified students with financial need. The scholarship will cover a maximum of 50% of the program fee and priority will be given to students who do not have a STEM background. The application for the Bridge Scholarship can be found within the Bridge application.

NYU Tandon Bridge does not facilitate GI Bill & Veteran funding, nor is it able to guarantee the NYU Tandon Bridge course qualifies for funding. Please see New York University’s Veteran Benefits website for additional information.

NYU Tandon Bridge does not facilitate tuition remission for NYU employees, nor does it guarantee the NYU Tandon Bridge course qualifies for tuition remission. It is recommended that NYU employees contact their HR Department, who will be able to guide them through the process to apply for tuition remission. Please see New York University’s Tuition Remission website for employees for additional information.

NYU Tandon Bridge does not facilitate employer funding, nor does it guarantee the NYU Tandon Bridge course qualifies for employer funding. Bridge students interested in obtaining funding through their employer, are responsible for coordinating their funding with their employer, following their employers guidelines. 

For reimbursement purposes managed by your company, the number of the Bridge course is CSBR-NY 1.

NYU Tandon Bridge does not facilitate third-party funding, nor does it guarantee the NYU Tandon Bridge course qualifies for third-party funding. 

There are no discounts offered, and students are liable for the full tuition being charged for the course they enroll in. 

Students who fail to submit any payment by the first day of the course will be removed from the course immediately. Students who are removed from the course due to non-payment cannot re-enroll in the same semester and must re-submit a new application to be considered for a future semester. If admitted to a future semester, students will not have the ability to start where they previously left off, and must begin their coursework as a new student. 

Any Bridge student who is removed due to non-payment is not guaranteed admission to any future semester, should they reapply. Any Bridge student removed due to non-payment for a total of two Bridge semesters, will not be readmitted to a future Bridge semester, should they reapply. 

It is your responsibility as the student to ensure you are submitting the correct payment amount specified in your offer of admission at the correct deadline. After the given deadline has passed, your remaining balance should be $0.00 USD. A Bridge student who has an outstanding balance over the amount of $0.00 USD after the given deadline, as a result of submitting their payment in the incorrect amount, or as a result of having a portion of their Bridge tuition applied toward a prior outstanding balance at the University, must submit any outstanding balance immediately to avoid late fees and third-party collections. 

NYU reserves the right to withhold certificates, grades, and GRE waivers for those who have a partial balance remaining after the payment deadline.
