Exam Proctoring 

Students will take all exams using the ProctorU online proctoring service. Prior to the start of the course, Bridge students must create a ProctorU account as an “NYU Tandon School of Engineering Test-Taker”. Users are required to register for all exams 3 days in advance, or when the instructor notifies you that the exam is available, to avoid a late-fee charge and ensure a proctor will be available for the exam session. Additionally, students are responsible for registering for the correct exam, as instructed by the professor. 

All exams are 2-hours long unless otherwise stated by the instructor. The 2-hour time limit to take each exam, begins once the Proctor enters the exam password. Students are required to self-time their exams, and must start the timer at that point. 

By accepting your NYU Tandon Bridge offer of admission, you agree to all ProctorU FAQ’s and the ProctorU Privacy Policy. The NYU Tandon Bridge is a 100% online course, and all exams must be taken online using ProctorU for reasons of academic integrity. There is no option to take exams on-campus; this applies to all students, including those who reside in New York City. 

To learn more about ProctorU and taking a proctored exam, please review the ProctorU Test-Taker Guide and the What Do I Need To Have For My Exam article. 

Computer Requirements

It is the student's responsibility to ensure they have the following resources:

  • Computer
  • Cell phone or other device for Multi-Factor Authentication
  • Internet connection (please acquire a personal VPN if your internet is unstable)
  • Microphone (some web cameras have them built-in)
  • Web-camera
    • ProctorU compatible operating system, and browser
  • Linux is not a supported operating system
  • Government-issued ID 

All listed items must be in properly functioning and reliable condition throughout the entire duration of the course and must meet all ProctorU System Requirements. Bridge students are required to Test Computer Equipment at least one day before each exam.

Defer/Withdraw/Swap Policies

In order to request a deferral, withdrawal, or duration swap, you must first accept your offer of admission. Once you have accepted your offer, you can submit the Defer/Withdraw/Swap Form found on your Applicant Status Page.

To find your specific Defer/Withdraw/Swap deadline, please refer to the Bridge Academic Calendar. For a more in-depth review of these policies and any impacts related to tuition, please visit our Defer/Withdraw/Swap FAQ page.

Visit How to Defer, Withdraw, or Swap for more information. 

Bridge students are able to defer their enrollment up to one year from their original offer of admission to the Bridge program. Enrolled students who defer will be removed from the course and lose access to the course site. Before the start of your new start term, you will receive a new admission letter.

Bridge students are able to withdraw their enrollment from the course. Enrolled students who withdraw will be removed from the course and lose access to the course site. If you wish to retake the Bridge program in a future semester, you are eligible to re-apply by submitting a new Bridge Application by the new application deadline.

Students enrolled in a Bridge course with both 17-week and 24-week options can swap from the 17-week to 24-week course (or vice-versa) for up to two weeks after the first exam. Your new course will take at least 24 hours to appear in NYU Classes. Swap requests made 5 days or less prior to the first exam cannot be accommodated and will be completed the day following your exam.

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 17-week course that requires approximately 30-40 hours per week, and a 24-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.

Resources Available to Bridge Students

Disability Services

If you need any specific accommodations you may reach out to the NYU Moses Center before the start of the course who may be able to help you arrange those.

After Completing Bridge Course

Certificates are issued to individuals who receive a standard letter grade of a C or higher. For those who receive a standard letter grade of a  B+ or higher, the Certificate will say "with Distinction." 

A Certificate can be used as part of your Graduate application as an additional credential, along with all other application materials, showing that you have a working knowledge of the topics covered in the Bridge course. A Certificate will be recognized by our select NYU Tandon Graduate programs and our Partner Institution programs  to show that you have gained the knowledge-prerequisites required by these programming-heavy Master's degrees, making you eligible to apply.

The NYU Tandon Bridge is a non-credit course. Linked here is a Certificate Example.

Currently-enrolled Bridge students and alumni should apply to a Master’s degree by submitting a formal Master’s Degree application before the relevant Master’s degree application deadline. Once submitted, Bridge students will have until the end of their Bridge course to complete their application, by submitting all required application materials, except for the GRE (optional), to ensure a Master’s application decision can be rendered prior to the start of the semester. Bridge students who wish to submit their GRE as part of their Master’s application must do so prior to the end of the Bridge course.

To learn more about the application process, please visit our Applying to a Master’s Degree from NYU Tandon Bridge page.

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.

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.

NYU Policies

Cheating on homeworks, exams, or otherwise any graded assignments is not tolerated. If it is discovered that a student has cheated on a graded assignment, New York University reserves the right to conduct an internal investigation, and a grade of zero, or F, will be given, and will count toward the student’s final grade. New York University further reserves the right to withhold a final course grade. Students are not permitted to use any external resources to complete graded assignments, unless explicitly approved by the course instructor. Collaborating on a graded assignment is not allowed unless specifically permitted by the course instructor. A student found to have cheated must still abide by the payment, refund and defer withdrawal policies stated here.

Former/Current NYU Student FAQ

If you have attended NYU in the past, and a financial hold with the NYU Bursar Office, this hold will need to be resolved prior to enrolling in the Bridge course. 

Any student with a prior negative/outstanding balance at NYU must be zero out their account before submitting payment for the Bridge course. Those with a prior outstanding balance who submit a payment or the full tuition for the current Bridge semester, will not have their payment applied toward their Bridge payment balance. Instead, the payment submitted for the Bridge course will be automatically applied toward any prior outstanding balance. 

NYU reserves the right to uphold the “Non-Payment” Policy and remove students from the Bridge course who have not zeroed out their University account prior to submitting their tuition, and as a result, have an outstanding balance of $1,850.00 USD for the cost of the Bridge course at the payment deadline/s listed.


Those who have an NYU Tandon Graduate Academic Probation hold are not eligible to apply for graduate study at Tandon. Students on final probation must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above at the end of that semester, or the student will be disqualified from the school. Disqualified students will not be considered for readmission. If a student is disqualified, any grade of Incompletion, S, or U at the time of disqualification will remain as such on the student’s transcript.

No. The Tandon Office of Graduate Academics does not permit Tandon Bridge students to enroll in another NYU program simultaneously.
