Film & TV Students interested in Applying

The Dual Degree program requires standardized test scores OR quantitative coursework completed here at NYU. Some of you may not have submitted these when you applied to NYU. Please read the details below to learn how to proceed.

If you would like us to consider your quantitative coursework, please email us at and indicate which courses you have taken at NYU that you would like us to consider.

If you would like to submit standardized test scores, you must submit at least ONE of the following:

  • SAT; or
  • ACT; or
  • International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma; or
  • SAT Subject Test score in either Math Level 1 or Math Level 2; or
  • AP Calculus AB or Calculus BC*; or
  • IB higher-level mathematics or further mathematics.

*If you took AP Statistics you should still submit your score if you have a 4 or 5 for advanced standing consideration.

Once you have decided which scores you would like to submit, you can find instructions for how to submit scores here. We encourage you to send NYU your official standardized test scores at least two weeks before the application is due, so they will arrive in time for your application to be considered.

If you can’t recall whether or not you submitted official test scores when you applied to NYU, please email us and we can check for you.

If you have any additional questions, please email us directly at
