Application Review & Notification
Students who have submitted a complete application by the first or second deadline will be notified via e-mail on the stated notification date. Applicants who apply after these deadlines will be reviewed on a rolling basis and will receive notification 2 - 4 weeks from the date of submission. For more details about application materials and deadlines see the Applying Page.
Accepted students must confirm their intention to enroll.
Confirming your spot
You must accept your offer of admission in order to confirm your intention to enroll. Unless otherwise noted, all students must submit a $500 non-refundable, non-transferable reservation fee to guarantee their place in the program. Below are three ways to confirm your spot. Do not submit payment directly to the bursar.
An Important Note: All students are recommended to confirm their spot within 2 weeks of receiving notification of acceptance. Please understand that enrollment capacity is limited and if the program reaches capacity before we receive your reservation, you will be placed on a wait list.
• Log on to your NYUGlobalHome account (Visiting Students will first have to activate their NYU net ID).
• Select the "Academics" Tab
• Click on the "Albert" button
• Within Albert, Select the "Applicants" tab at the top left of the page
• Select the "Application Status" link
• Click on the purple "Admission Offer" button next to your study away application
• Follow all of the prompts to accept or decline your offer of admission
Students with demonstrated financial need are encouraged to submit our Study Away Confirmation Fee Deferment Form to be formally reviewed for deferment eligibility. Please log into the form using your NYU email address.
Though we would like to accommodate each and every student that has expressed a financial need, a formal threshold is imperative. This threshold is as follows: if a student's financial aid package consists of any form of loans, grants, or scholarships - we will waive the enrollment fee in the order it is received via this formal deferment form. Students who submit this form and qualify for fee deferment will be automatically confirmed to enroll.
Please mail or hand-deliver a completed confirmation form and a check or money order payable to "New York University" with your name and University ID written in the memo section, to NYU Office of Global Programs, 383 Lafayette St, 4th Floor, New York NY 10003.
Note: Please do not send cash. The check or money order must be in US funds only and include your University ID number. Once we receive and process your reservation fee, the "Admission Offer" button will no longer be available to you through Albert.
In order to confirm your spot, you will first need to activate your NetID.
Your net ID is a combination of letters (your initials) and numbers and is provided in your acceptance letter to NYU Study Away. It will become your NYU email address (sample: firstname.lastname@example.org) but you’ll have the opportunity to assign an alias if you want
- Go to the NYU Start page: start.nyu.edu.
- Enter your Net ID as provided on the top of your acceptance letter.
- Follow on-screen prompts for what needs to be entered.
- After activating your NetID you can then activate your NYUHome service.
- If you encounter any problems, contact the IT Service Desk.
In order to be reviewed for an alternate program or to cancel a submitted application, students must submit one of the following request forms.
Any student who has already applied, been admitted, or confirmed to study away for an upcoming term, but who has decided to change their first choice program location, should submit a program change request form. Please understand that change requests will be reviewed on a space available basis and that your application will be reassessed in light of the information you include here.
Students no longer interested in study away must submit an Application Cancellation Form.
Students who still want to be considered for study away but for a different program for which they initially applied or were admitted should submit the Program Change Request Form. Applications or admission cannot be deferred.
Please review the frequently asked questions below about the confirmation process, program changes and cancellations. If you are unable to find your answer here, contact email@example.com.
Before midnight (EST)! We aim to send out notification during regular business hours, but if you have not heard by 5 pm don't worry. You will soon!
The requirements of your confirmation will be stated in your acceptance letter. Students participating on select programs, confirming their spring enrollment as part of a full year away, and degree students from NYU Shanghai and NYU Abu Dhabi are not required to submit payment.
Unless you believe you are eligible for the deferment, completing the form will not help reserve your spot. If you are having problems submitting your confirmation online:
- Clear your browser history/cache before attempting to log in again.
Students will receive an automated email when the Deferment Form is received. We will review within 2 - 4 business days. Students who are granted deferment will receive confirmation of their spot in the program. If more information is required, you will receive an email from a representative of the office within the same time frame.
Once confirmation is received or the deferment request granted, students will receive an email confirming their spot within 24 -48 hours.
Any student who has been admitted to one program but wants to switch to another should complete the program change form. Completing that form does not guarantee admission to the new program. You will be reviewed for the new program and notified of a decision shortly.
If you are sure you do not want to attend the program you were admitted do not confirm (or cancel) your spot. If you still plan to study away at the location you were admitted if not allowed to switch programs, it is advised you confirm your spot.
You can only have one application on file with Global Programs per term. If you would like to reactivate your application, you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your admission to the program will be dependent on space and immigration restrictions and is not guaranteed.
If you are certain that no other program except your first choice program will be an option, you can request to be put on a wait list. By going on the wait list, you will be forfeiting your spot in your second choice or any other available program.
The wait list is not a first come first serve process. As space becomes available, we will review all students as part of a larger pool. If we determine that we are able to add students to the cohort, we will review the entire pool and consider the academic requirements of the applicants, in addition to the academic strength of each student, to identify who would be most eligible to receive the offer. We review the wait list cohort as a pool because we want to make the best choice possible, taking into account course preferences and class capacity.
