PORTAL CAMPUS SELECTION

You may apply to one or both of NYU's campuses in Abu Dhabi and New York, the primary portals of entry into our Global Network University. You do not enhance or diminish your chances of admission based simply on whether you select one or both portal campuses. You could be admitted to one or both portal campuses based on the strength of your application. Students applying Early Decision and who express interest in an alternate NYU campus will not be bound by the Early Decision agreement if offered admission to an alternate NYU campus only and not their primary NYU campus of interest. They will only be expected to enroll at NYU if they choose to confirm their enrollment and pay their deposit. Please indicate the portal campus to which we should give your application primary consideration. l Abu Dhabi l Yes l New York City l No Would you be interested in being considered for admission to the alternate portal campus as well?

SCHOOL, COLLEGE, OR PROGRAM OF INTEREST

A . Applicants to NYU Abu Dhabi will declare an academic area of study upon arrival and do not have to declare their specific academic intentions at this time. Applicants to NYU in New York City, however, must select one of our nine schools, colleges, or programs of interest. For the first time ever, students who apply to NYU's portal campus in New York can select our program in Liberal Studies. Liberal Studies at NYU offers students an opportunity to complete their general education bachelor's degree requirements through our Core Program, a rigorous, interdisciplinary curriculum. Our freshman and sophomore two-year course of study emphasizes the Great Books, focusing on the masterworks of world cultures. The curriculum is writing-intensive and interdisciplinary, embracing literature, history, philosophy, art, architecture, and music, with faculty attention and small classes (typically fewer than 25 students) as hallmarks. Distinct to Liberal Studies, students can begin their studies in New York or at our global academic centers in London, Paris, Florence, or Shanghai. In the second year, students begin to take courses in the College of Arts and Science, Global Liberal Studies, or in another school or program, depending on their interests and ability to meet prerequisites, academic performance standards, or artistic talent. Please select--choosing only one option--your primary school, college, or program of interest if you are applying to NYU in New York City: l College of Arts and Science l College of Nursing Liberal Studies:

l Gallatin School of Individualized Study l Leonard N. Stern School of Business l Silver School of Social Work l Tisch School of the Arts l Preston Robert Tisch Center for Hospitality, Tourism, and Sports Management l Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development

l The Core Program

l Global Liberal Studies

B. If, after reviewing your application, we are unable to offer you admission to the school, college, or program you have selected and we believe another school, college, or program at NYU may be a better fit based on your qualifications, would you like to be considered for admission to another school, college, or program? l Yes l No

Students applying Early Decision and who express interest in an alternate NYU school, college, or program will not be bound by the Early Decision agreement if offered admission to an alternate NYU school, college, or program and not their primary NYU school, college, or program of interest. They will only be expected to enroll at NYU if they choose to confirm their enrollment and pay their deposit.

NYU's McGhee Division welcomes transfer applications from nontraditional students on a rolling basis for spring, summer, and fall admission. Would you like to be considered for admission to the McGhee Division if you are a transfer applicant and we are unable to offer you admission to your school, college, or program of interest? l Yes l No

FRESHMAN YEAR SITE SELECTION

Each year, we select students admitted to our program in Liberal Studies and offer them the opportunity to begin their NYU studies at one of our global academic centers in London, Florence, Paris, or Shanghai, where they will be taught by NYU faculty and live in NYU residence halls. Though space is extremely limited, admitted students may have this option of spending their first year at one of our global academic centers before continuing their studies at NYU's campus in New York City. Students must be 18 by August 15, 2012, to begin their studies at one of our global academic centers. If you are admitted to the program in Liberal Studies and would like to indicate a preference for where you would begin your NYU studies, please rank your preference using the numbers 1 to 4 (with 1 being the most desirable location to you). If you do not have an interest in spending your freshman year at one of our global academic centers, you can skip to Section 8. Please indicate if you are interested in spending your freshman year at any of our global academic centers and rank order your choices (1-4) below: l NYU London l NYU Florence l NYU Paris l NYU Shanghai
