Executive LLM in Tax


Students admitted to the Executive LLM program can complete the entire degree by participating in online courses. They may take up to 12 credits on campus in Greenwich Village if they wish. If they wish to take more courses on campus, they may freely transfer into the part-time program.

Please note that our online programs are not available in all states. At this time we are unable to accept new distance-learning students who will undertake their studies from within the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Minnesota, Oregon, and Wisconsin.

*We recently obtained Montana’s authorization to educate Montana citizens. We previously had not allowed Montana residents to apply.

Additionally, students from the following four states may enroll, but may not take examinations in these states: Delaware, Kentucky, Rhode Island, and West Virginia. Potential applicants from these states should contact John Stephens (john.stephens@nyu.edu) prior to applying to see if they are able to examine in these states either online or in-person under applicable state law. It may be possible for residents of these states to instead examine on campus in New York or from another state.

States may have unique complaint processes available, and a list of those can be found here, compiled by SHEEO (State Higher Education Executive Officers Association).
