Critical Instructions for Summer and Fall Transfers

To confirm your enrollment at NYU, you will need to visit our NYUHome website and use your NYU NetID and Password to access NYUAlbert, our online portal to NYU’s student information system where you will accept or decline your admission offer. Using NYUAlbert, you can also review your preliminary statement of transfer credit. In addition, if you applied for financial aid and you qualify, we will provide you with your financial aid award online. Please follow these quick steps:

  1. Activate your NYU NetID and create your password.
    If you have not already done so, you must activate your NYU NetID and create a password. If you have already activated your NYU NetID and created a password, you can skip to #2.

    You have been assigned a NetID, which is in your admission letter. Your NetID is used to sign in to systems at NYU. To activate this NetID and set your password, go to the NYU Information Technology Services (ITS) Start page at Enter your NetID, click on the “Start” button and follow the online instructions. To complete the process, you will also need your date of birth and your NYU University ID number. Your NYU University ID is also in your admission letter.

  2. Sign in to your NYUHome service and NYUAlbert.
    NYUHome is a portal of entry to access online NYU services like NYU Albert. Your username for your NYUHome account is your NetID, and your password is the one you have just created. NYUHome can be located at

  3. View your financial aid award.
    If you did not apply for financial aid, you may skip to step #4.

    You will receive an email when you are able to access your financial aid award, assuming you qualify and you have filed a 2014-2015 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by our deadline. Assuming you are eligible, you should receive this email within five to seven days of receiving your offer of admission. Please be sure to check your “To Do” list in NYUAlbert to see if there are any documents requested. Failure to supply requested documents can result in the delay of your financial aid award.

    If you have not applied for Financial Aid and wish to apply for federal aid, you can file your FAFSA electronically by going to Be sure to list NYU as a university to receive your FAFSA data (NYU’s school code is 002785) and include all required electronic signatures.

    It is important that you take the time to review information regarding financial aid, including the current cost of attendance. A link to NYU’s Financial Aid Guide can be found at

    If you have questions about your financial aid award, please contact the Office of Financial Aid directly at +1 212 998 4444 or by email at

  4. Review your preliminary statement of transfer credit, respond to your offer of admission, and confirm your enrollment.
    All admitted students should respond to our offer of admission by either accepting or declining. To accept our offer and confirm your enrollment online, you must do so within three weeks of your admission letter. To do so, click on “Applicant Login” in NYUAlbert, followed by “Application Status.” Please then follow the online candidate reply process by clicking on the “ADMISSIONS OFFER” link, which appears in the upper right hand corner of your Application Status page. Again, you must confirm your enrollment within three weeks of the date on your admission letter.

    To review your preliminary statement of transfer credit, log in to NYU Albert and click on “Transfer Credit,” under “Admissions.” This will bring you to a page titled “Transfer Credit Report,” where you can examine your credit summary. From this page, you can see what courses will likely transfer to NYU. Here you will also find a link to a page on our website titled “Admitted Student Transfer Credit Information” which provides more details about transfer credit.

    Students admitted to the College of Nursing should not attempt to access NYUAlbert for their transfer credit report. Instead, we have enclosed information about your transfer credits.

    Your NYU Email Address
    Soon after you confirm your enrollment at NYU, you will be assigned an NYU email address and will receive instructions on how to create your email account. It is important to remember to check your NYU email account regularly from the point it is activated, as critical information about your enrollment process will be sent there.

    If you have any questions after you receive instructions from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions about setting up your NYU email address, you can contact NYU’s global IT Service Desk at (Note: If you experience trouble accessing your NYU email, you may use the NYU VPN service. Contact the email address above for details, but only after you receive instructions from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.)If you cIf you are an international student, you must complete an I-20/DS-2019 application.

    1. International students should submit their I-20/DS-2019 application as soon as they decide to attend NYU. It is advised to allow three months lead time from the date of application to the date they wish to enter the US in F1 or J1 status.
    2. Send the application in one PDF to You will receive an automatic confirmation. Please be sure to submit a complete application. Incomplete applications will take additional processing time.
    3. The instructions on how to apply for an I-20 or DS-2019 form are here: You must use your NYU NetID and NYU home password to log into the application. Watch our YouTube video on Coming to the U.S. to see an overview of the process.
    4. Submit supporting financial documents in English or accompanied by official English translations. Bank statements must be dated within six months. You must show funding for the first year in liquid assets.
  6. Important information regarding on-campus housing availability.
    Due to the reduced inventory caused by the yearlong renovation of Hayden Hall, Fall 2014 on-campus housing for transfer students is NOT guaranteed. You may submit the Fall 2014 non-renewable housing application, which will be available through your NYUHome account starting April 11, 2014. Students who complete the non-renewable housing application by May 23, 2014 will receive a status update regarding the likelihood of a fall on-campus placement by June 2, 2104. We encourage new transfer students to seek accommodations off campus for next year.

New York University welcomes you.
