Is your visa expiring soon?

If you are applying for a new visa over winter break, please note that in some circumstances you may be subject to something called "administrative processing," which means it could then take one or two months to get a new visa. Apply as early as possible, and make sure to contact your academic department if you will not be back in time for the start of the semester. Review our information on getting a new visa.

Studying at another NYU site next semester?

Please make sure to review our study or research abroad page to understand how your F-1 or J-1 student status may be affected.

Registered as a full-time student in Spring 2015?

All F-1 and J-1 students are required to register full-time, which is a minimum of 12 credits per semester for most NYU programs, in order to remain in the United States. Make sure you register full-time or gain approval from the OGS to be registered part-time as soon as possible.
