The Office of Special Sessions facilitates the School’s programmatic efforts for the Summer and Winter Sessions as well as the Spring in New York Program, a domestic study-away program.
NYU’s Summer Session serves more than 10,000 NYU and visiting graduate, undergraduate, professional, non-credit and high school students at NYU campuses around the world. Programs include the NYU Pre-College program, Summer Study Abroad, and Summer in Greenwich Village. Hundreds of courses covering introductory to advanced materials enable graduate and undergraduate students to enrich and deepen their undergraduate experience, add additional minors, complete requirements and explore new areas of study.
NYU Winter Session, a three week session that runs before the Spring Semester offers courses at NYU Washington Square as well as at selected NYU Global locations.
Visiting are welcomed to our programs and, subject to availability, may also be eligible for NYU housing.
The office funds the Three Week Intensive Curriculum Development Grant competition which offers support to faculty interested in developing courses to be offered as three-week intensives, during either the Summer or Winter Session.
