Technical Issues Accessing Your Application Status Page

If you haven’t successfully set up your NYU account and logged into your status page, you won’t be able to access your admissions decision. We strongly recommend ensuring you can log in and resolving your technical issues BEFORE decision release.

First, set up your NYU account on the NYU Start page. Then, log in to your application status page.

If you encounter an issue, email with your IDs, a description of the problem, and a screenshot so we can help you resolve it ASAP.
