Mandatory Check-in

You must attend a mandatory check-in workshop with the OGS as soon as possible once you arrive to the United States. This is a requirement of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for F-1 and J-1 students, thus failure to attend a check-in workshop may jeopardize your ability to remain legally in the U.S. Special note: J-1 students sponsored by other organizations (such as Fulbright) and dependents of F-1 and J-1 NYU students do not need to attend.


Sign up for a Check-in Workshop

The following are the times for the upcoming Summer/Fall Mandatory Check-in workshops. Please note that students at the NYU Polytechnic School of Engineering must attend a workshop at the School of Engineering in Brooklyn. All other students should sign up for one of the sessions at Washington Square.
