Critical Instructions for Spring 2015 Transfer Students

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.

  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. Review the NYU Financial Aid Guide.

  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.

    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.
