The January Term 2014 application is now closed. The January Term 2015 application will be available on October 1, 2014.

If you are eligible to participate in January Term as a visiting student, please follow the steps below to apply. Current NYU Students do not need to follow these steps and can register for courses directly via Albert. Please note: Visiting students may only apply to one NYU program at a time.

Application Instructions for Visiting Students:

1. Complete the online application form (available October 1, 2014).

Fill out the January Term Visiting Student Application, which includes a $70 application fee, to begin the 2-step application process. The information collected on this form will generate your NYU IDs so that you can complete the second step of the process. Please note: Processing time for applications is 1-2 weeks once the online application form is received. All communication will be made by e-mail. Be sure to provide an e-mail address that you check regularly.

2. Select and register for courses.

Once you receive your enrollment letter, which includes your NYU ID Number and NetID, you will be able to complete this step. Instructions to register can be found under the Admitted Students page of the website.


  • Students who are United States citizens or permanent residents may submit their applications for January Term up until the first day of each session. Please be mindful of any financial aid deadlines that may be required in order for your home institution to offer you aid through a consortium agreement.
  • International students must submit their application by November 1, 2013. After submitting the application, international students will receive the 1-20/DS-2019 application via e-mail. The I-20/DS-2019 application is due by November 15, 2013.
