International Students

Getting a Visa

Individuals who enter the U.S. on a B visa (tourist) or pursuant to visa waiver are not eligible to participate in a course of study at NYU as a visiting student. An F-1 or J-1 student is a nonimmigrant who is pursuing a "full course of study" to achieve a specific educational objective at an academic institution in the United States. Please contact OGS to clarify any questions related to your particular educational objective.

Arriving in New York City

All international students MUST check in with the NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) upon arrival in order to be in compliance. Visit the OGS website for a list of dates and times for visiting student check in.
