Immigration Matters

Have you provided us with your updated US address?

All students must have an up-to-date U.S. residential address in their NYU records. If we do not receive a U.S. address, you risk losing legal status in the United States. For instructions, visit this page.

Attend one of our mandatory check-in workshops yet?

New and transfer students are required by law to attend an OGS check-in workshop. You must attend before Friday, September 19. If you haven’t already, sign up for a session here.

Are you registered as a full-time student?

You must register as a full-time student or gain approval from the OGS to be registered as a part-time student by Friday, October 3 if you have not already done so in order to remain in the United States. For more details or to apply for part-time status, click here. *Special note for graduate students: If you’re registered for less than 12 credits or have completed all coursework except thesis or dissertation, you must secure “full-time matriculation” in your academic records.

Transfer to NYU from another U.S. university?

All transfer students must obtain a new I-20 no later than Wednesday, September 17 in order to maintain F-1 status. Apply for an I-20 here and make sure you have completed all steps in our transfer checklist.

Interested in working in U.S. after graduation?

Students interested in working in the United States after graduation should attend our upcoming OPT and Work-Visa Workshops. More information can be found on our events calendar. Other on- or off-campus employment information can be found on our employment page.

Special Notice: Beware of Scams

Some students have recently reported to us that they are getting calls from people claiming to be government officials who then ask for their personal information. Remember not to release private information, such as date of birth, Social Security number, bank/credit card numbers to anyone who contacts you. To report any suspicious call or email you receive and to learn how to protect yourself, contact the Federal Trade Commission at www.ftc.gov. Report immigration scams here.
