Mandatory Check-in


All new international students* must attend a mandatory check-in workshop with the OGS as         soon as possible once you arrive to the United States.

Note that failure to attend a check-in workshop may jeopardize your ability to remain legally in the U.S.

* J-1 students sponsored by other organizations (such as Fulbright) and 
* dependents of F-1 and J-1 students do NOT need to attend.


There are no further check-in workshops for the Spring 2015 semester. If you have not yet checked in, you must go to the OGS walk-in advising hours (Monday-Thursday, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.) as soon as possible with the documents as listed below.

Students arriving for the Summer and Fall 2015 terms, check-in workshops will be posted here, once scheduled.

  • Passport
  • I-94 record
  • I-20 or DS-2019
  • Your dependent’s documents (if you have dependents)


  • Before attending the check-in workshop, update your U.S. address with NYU.
  • You will not be admitted to the check-in without bringing ALL of your required documents.
  • Workshops last approximately 1 hour.
  • Arrive at least 15 minutes early
