Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA)

What is a CGPA Conditional Admission?

Undergraduate CGPA and standardized exams (GRE or GMAT) are utilized as a measure to gauge potential success in graduate school. As per the recommendation from the admissions committee, you have been admitted to the NYU Tandon School of Engineering (NYU School of Engineering) with a low Undergraduate CGPA and/or low exam score and are therefore required to maintain a CGPA of 3.0 or above for the length of time or number of credit hours stipulated in your acceptance letter. This is a requirement you must fulfill in order to continue with your academic degree program and it is a stipulation of your acceptance to the Graduate School at NYU School of Engineering .


In a student’s first semester, registration will be facilitated during orientation. Students must sign-in with the Graduate Center to have their student account hold temporarily lifted and then meet with their academic advisor before registering for classes online. In each subsequent semester while fulfilling a CGPA conditional admission, students must visit the Graduate Center to have their hold temporarily lifted for class registration.


There are no waivers for students with CGPA conditional admissions.
