Cynthia Pérez

Thank you for your interest in the Paul McGhee Division of undergraduate studies at the New York University School of Professional Studies. Congratulations on taking this first step towards completing your undergraduate degree! Whether you are a transfer student who has recently attended community college, a student who has earned partial credit towards an undergraduate degree at a four-year college, or an adult who seeks to return to school to finish your undergraduate degree, you will find that McGhee offers an intellectually stimulating and supportive learning environment to pursue your academic goals and objectives.

At McGhee, we value your previous learning experience. Our seamless transfer policies allow you to apply credit earned at an accredited community college or university towards completing your undergraduate degree. Credit for prior learning that includes work and life experience also is considered for adults who have taken a longer hiatus from their studies.

McGhee offers a stellar liberal arts-based education that provides you with the solid writing and the critical thinking skills that employers seek. Associate's and bachelor's degrees are available in a wide range of subjects, and students can choose to study in a traditional classroom setting or online.

We know that transferring to a new college or resuming your studies after many years can seem daunting. No matter what your circumstances, you can rest assured that the advisors and the faculty members at McGhee will strive to provide you with the support, flexibility and counseling you need to thrive in this exhilarating educational environment. 

In the Office of Admissions, we emulate that commitment throughout the application process. The website outlines the steps for completing the online application and also provides an overview of what we look for in a McGhee applicant. When we review your application, we consider all facets of your academic and professional background, as well as your unique life experiences.

We are here to help you throughout the application process. Our admissions counselors provide one-on-one support to guide you through every step of the way. Please feel free to contact us for answers to your questions and to learn more about our undergraduate programs. Call 212-998-7100 or email today to set up your appointment, and take that first step towards completing your undergraduate degree.

We look forward to hearing from you.
