A copy of your most recent résumé or curriculum vitae must be uploaded to the online application.

A statement of purpose is required for each applicant and should convey, in 500 words or less, why you wish to pursue the NYU Tandon Bridge program.

There is no application fee to apply to the Bridge program.

Transcripts are required from each post-secondary university that you have previously attended. If your transcript shows that you have transferred 60 or more credits, but the grades are not reflected we will require a transfer credit transcript as well. Copies of Official Transcripts are acceptable for the application, as long as they show your name, complete academic history, courses, grades, and GPA.

Applicants whose transcripts are not from the United States must provide English translated, evaluated transcript/s. We require a course-by-course evaluation showing your GPA on a US 4.0 GPA Scale, showing the name of each course taken and the grade for each class. The evaluation must show you have the equivalent of a 4 year US bachelor's degree. The evaluation can be done by any evaluation service that provides professional evaluations. Please have your evaluation and/or translation mailed to you and upload it to your NYU Tandon Bridge application. There is no preferred service that can provide this evaluation but the following services would be acceptable for your Bridge application:

Translation into English can be done by any of the following services:

  • ECE

  • Scholaro 
  • IERF
  • WES
