Students are welcome to participate in multiple CAS Summer Abroad programs as long as the program dates do not overlap. Please contact email@example.com to submit a second application.
NYU students need only to complete their application on Albert and provide a short personal statement. No additional documents or recommendation letters are required.
Information pertaining to admissions and to the application process can be found on the Apply Now page.
Visiting students must submit a personal statement and an official academic transcript in addition to their application form.
Official academic transcripts should be sent to:
NYU Office of Global Programs
383 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003
Accepted students who have secured their spot in the program by submitting the non-refundable, non-transferable reservation fee will be contacted by the Global Academics team with further instructions for summer program registration. Those students who are accepted and deposit earlier in the admission cycle will be able to register first.
For programs where students take only one or two courses (Urban Design in London, Journalism in Ghana, or Writers in Florence), you will be manually registered by the Global Academics team.
Students wishing to take more than 8 credits may contact their home school for approval. CAS students may petition the Office of the Associate Dean for Students (Silver Center, Room 909, 212-998-8140)
All CAS students are required to receive advisor approval prior to registering for summer classes, as is the case for Fall and Spring semester registration. CAS Students can make an advisor appointment by calling the Advising Center at 212-998-8130.
Students are notified of an admission decision within two weeks of the stated application deadline. For example, if you apply by February 1, you will receive your admission decision around February 15. To secure a spot in the program, students submit a nonrefundable, nontransferable $500 reservation fee within two weeks of their acceptance notification.
Once a student has confirmed admission and registered for the proper amount of credits, the Office of the Bursar will issue a billing statement. You can visit the NYU Bursar website for complete billing information and instructions.
Please note that other costs associated with CAS Summer Abroad, such as housing, and the program and activities fee, are generated throughout the spring and will be applied to your summer bursar bill.
There are a number of financial resources available to students who wish to participate in CAS Summer Abroad. Please see information below and on the Financial Assistance page.
- The CAS Dean's Opportunity Fund for Study Away is a need-based scholarship designated for eligible CAS matriculated students. The eligibility information and application are available online here. Please note that you must be accepted to the program and secure your spot by submitting the reservation fee before applying for this funding.
- Summer financial aid is available for all students who are taking at least 6 credits during the summer term. It can be applied to summer on-campus courses as well as CAS Summer Abroad courses. The application for summer financial aid becomes available in February and is located on the Summer Financial Aid website. Visiting students, please speak to your home institution about applying financial aid to a CAS Summer Abroad program through a consortium agreement.
- There are many external study abroad funding resources that you can research independently. A list of these types of opportunities is available here. Please note that these opportunities are not administered by NYU, and students must contact the organizations directly for more information. Deadlines are coming up, so make sure to review soon.
All admitted students are automatically referred to NYU's Office of Global Services for review, but ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to make all necessary arrangements to obtain a visa, if one is needed for travel on a summer abroad program. There are many resources at NYU to assist you, including the Office of Global Services, and tools like GlobalChek Plus located on NYU Home. You can access additional resources on Visas for NYU Study Abroad page.
Please note that depending on citizenship, obtaining a visa can be a lengthy process. Students are encouraged to plan well in advance.
In addition, there are walk-in hours for non-U.S. visa services Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00-4:00pm at 561 LaGuardia Place.
In most cases, it is mandatory for CAS Summer Abroad participants to stay in NYU provided housing for the duration of the program. NYU provided housing offers an immersive, community experience in locations carefully chosen for their safety, convenience and offered amenities.
Housing exemption requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and they are granted in very specific circumstances. The deadline to submit housing exemption requests is April 15. To make a request, please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org.
