Program Status

NYU Steinhardt is currently accepting applications and classes are ongoing.

Each of NYU Steinhardt’s online programs are not only up and running, but focused on creating a foundation for whatever is ahead. As a community, we are a united front in ensuring you have the tools to continue pursuing your goals:

Online Programs: NYU Steinhardt’s online programs are positioned to support student learning from virtually anywhere. These programs remain open, with weekly live classes held in Zoom classrooms. Students are able to meet with one another and professors online as they would normally. Rest assured that faculty in these programs are trained to teach in the online environment.

Digital Campus: Our online campus is designed to support connection and collaboration between all students regardless of their location. There are no barriers to discussion, and our students remain active in their course work. We know you remain committed to an education that will help you improve the lives of others, and we plan to do the same for our students.

Innovation and Advancement: We are always monitoring our online curricula and technology to ensure the most rigorous and engaging experience for NYU Steinhardt students. Moreso, we will continue to assess technological needs of students and faculty.

Ongoing Support Services: At this time, our admissions and student support teams remain active and available. Feel free to reach out and speak with a counselor on either of these teams with any questions. Contact us at Phone Number:855-698-4622 or to get started.

In-Person Experiences: In-depth learning experiences, including fieldwork, are a cornerstone of NYU Steinhardt programs. We are evaluating all student experiences on an ongoing basis and communicating directly with program leadership, current students, and prospective students.
