Revocation of Admission Offer

The Cooper Union reserves the right to withdraw an offer of admission. This occurs if a student:

i) presents grades or coursework significantly different from those on the transcript or other supporting documents upon which the offer of admission was based, or

ii) presents a final transcript, upon which the ultimate admission decision is contingent, which does not meet academic standards of the School, or

iii) engages in behavior that brings into question their honesty, judgment, integrity, or moral character, or

iv) engages in conduct that the institution, in its sole discretion, determines necessitates the withdrawal of an offer of admission

  • Founded by inventor, industrialist and philanthropist Peter Cooper in 1859, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art offers education in art, architecture and engineering, as well as courses in the humanities and social sciences.

  • “My feelings, my desires, my hopes, embrace humanity throughout the world,” Peter Cooper proclaimed in a speech in 1853. He looked forward to a time when, “knowledge shall cover the earth as waters cover the great deep.”

  • From its beginnings, Cooper Union was a unique institution, dedicated to founder Peter Cooper's proposition that education is the key not only to personal prosperity but to civic virtue and harmony.

  • Peter Cooper wanted his graduates to acquire the technical mastery and entrepreneurial skills, enrich their intellects and spark their creativity, and develop a sense of social justice that would translate into action.
