Welcome to NYU New York! We’re delighted that you’ll be spending a semester or year with us and can’t wait to greet you in New York. In the meantime, this page will guide you through everything you need to get ready for your term in the U.S. We’ve mirrored the acceptance letter very closely, so please be sure to use that as an additional reference.
In order to confirm your intention to enroll, you must accept your offer of admission. You can accept or decline your offer online or by mail / in person (only if you are unable to accept your offer online). To accept online, please see your acceptance email with specific instructions on how to access the link through NYUHome. If you are unable to accept your offer online, please mail a completed Confirmation Form (to be sent separately) to NYU Office of Global Programs, 383 Lafayette Street, 4th Floor, New York, NY 10003. Acceptance of your offer is encouraged within two weeks of notification. **It is this confirmation form that guarantees your place in the program. Please note that programs space is limited. If the program reaches capacity before we receive your confirmation, you will be placed on a wait list .**
To help prepare you for your semester or year away, your site representative has created an Admitted Students blog specificially for your program and term. This blog will be your main point of reference throughout the pre-departure process. All students need to be aware that this blog will be updated frequently, making it especially important to check new links and updates. These will be highlighted in a weekly email from your site rep, but it is highly suggested you – and your parents – subscribe to the blog as well to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
Please see link below for this term's Admitted Students blog.
Students should work directly with their home school's mobility team on the visa process.
We'll send all e-mail communication to your NYU e-mail address, so check that account regularly or activate mail forwarding. In addition, make sure that your addresses and phone numbers in Albert are updated so that we're able to contact you with important information throughout the semester.
You should search for classes using NYU Albert. Not all courses will be open to you as schools and departments may have restricted access to some of their courses. Pre-requisites will be strongly enforced in most cases.
If you wish to take Stern courses, you must follow the registration process for non-Stern students.
All students studying in New York will be required to complete a course intent form two weeks before the start of the semester.
All students are responsible for arranging their own transportation for their semester abroad. Students must plan to arrive on Arrival Day as indicated on the calendar.

Be sure to check out our Packing Tips before you begin packing. It is important to note that NYU New York does NOT provide linens or kitchen utensils and you will need to purchase these on site.
Before going abroad it's important to do your research on your destination. New York is a vibrant city with a wide array of cultures and customs. You can start your research by looking through the sites we've provided but don't be afraid to branch out into your own research and get to know the city!
