Our lives have been impacted in unprecedented ways across the globe due to COVID-19. As we adjust to the changes around us, the NYU Admissions team is here to guide and support you through this important time in your life as you decide where to attend college. We, like you, don’t stop in the face of challenges and we have created virtual experiences and opportunities to participate in live online events to ensure you hear and see from our community even while it can’t be in-person.
We have also created this FAQ page to help answer some of your pressing questions as a newly admitted student. There may be items not covered here, and there may even be items that we don’t have clear answers to at this time, but we are here to support you, ensure you can make the right choice for your college career, and help you navigate this time as best we can.
We recommend you refer back to this page often as more questions emerge and answers become available, and also recommend you keep an eye on the University’s COVID-19 response page for more information. If you do not find the information you need through these resources, please don’t hesitate to contact the Admissions Office by phone at +1-212-998-4500 or email email@example.com.
