To apply, you must use our online application (available here). When using the online application, you can submit all materials electronically.
The online procedure is user-friendly; however, if you have any questions regarding the application process, please view the GSAS Application Resource Center.
Note: You must arrange with the Educational Testing Services (ETS) to electronically submit GRE and TOEFL/IELTS scores (if necessary) to our Graduate School of Arts and Science (GSAS). Our institution code for the GRE and TOEFL is 2596. You do not need to use a special department code for the GRE. The GRE is recommended for the MS-CIE program but is not mandatory. For IELTS, contact your test center directly and request that your test scores be sent electronically to New York University, Graduate School of Arts and Science, New York, NY. An institutional code is not required. The GMAT cannot be accepted as a substitute for the GRE.
If you are required to take the TOEFL, this examination requires you to list a department code that is most appropriate for your field of study or you can simply use code 99. However, do not use code 00 and do not leave this field blank. We will not receive your test scores if you report it this way.
To expedite the processing of your application, you may include the unofficial copies of your results on these tests. However, we must receive the official scores from ETS before the admissions deadline.
Applicants should note the following:
- There is no NYU or departmental based financial support for master's students.
- GRE scores are recommended but not required for the MS-CEI program.
- The MS-CEI program has only one application deadline and is a full-time, one-year program.
