Prepare for Classes


  1. Get Your NYU ID Card
    The NYUCard is a multipurpose identification card issued to all registered students. For security purposes, all students are required to have their NYUCard in their possession at all times.

    Simply submit a photo online and, once approved by the NYUCard Center, you can pick up your card in person. The NYUCard Center is at 7 Washington Place. You must bring a valid photo ID with you to get your card. Photos submitted and approved by 3:00 p.m. can be picked up the following business day. More information about submitting your NYUCard photo and information is available online

    Students are asked to turn in their NYU ID Card at the end of their term of study (it will be deactivated at that time). If a student doesn’t return their ID card and returns for ANY future term he/she must produce their original card or pay a $15 replacement fee.

  2. Buy Your Textbooks
    The NYU Bookstore provides a list of required and optional textbooks for your credit-bearing courses. Textbooks can be ordered through their website, or you can purchase them at the store.
