FAQs

If I’m accepted into NYU, am I guaranteed a placement in a district or charter school?

The process is different depending on which residency option you chose: full-time or part-time. For both, please be advised that licensing agencies and fieldwork placement facilities in your field of study require that you undergo a criminal background check, the results of which the agency or facility must find acceptable before placement or licensure.

Full-Time Option

For the full-time option, you will need to complete the second step of the process, which is to interview with a school and get a job offer.

Part-Time Option

For the part-time option, your acceptance by NYU Steinhardt does ensure placement in your preferred district partner.
