We're only a few weeks into the Spring semester and it's been one of the mildest winters -- which no one is certainly complaining about! The city is also alive with the Giants winning the Super Bowl (sorry New England fans!) In this newsletter, we focus on some important deadlines for both returning and graduating students, as well as preparatory information for getting involved, the housing reapplication process, financial aid, study away opportunities, and graduation.

For students who are currently enrolled and receiving financial aid, they will need to reapply for Fall 2012/Spring 2013 (next year) aid by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA form (priority deadline is March 1). For students who are not receiving aid, but would like to be considered, the FAFSA form is required to start the process for consideration. The Office of Financial Aid also offers a number of workshops (click for a listing) this month to assist with the reapplication process.

For information on financial aid appeals, summer aid, financing alternatives, and study away, go to the Financial Aid site at www.nyu.edu/financial.aid or call 212.998.4444 to speak with a counselor.

Students are guaranteed University housing for their entire undergraduate academic career provided that they continue to meet all application, payment, registration, and occupancy conditions. Students are not guaranteed a specific hall or room placement. Students who fail to meet the reapplication deadline will lose their renewable status and will be eligible for housing only through a non-guaranteed housing application process.

The reapplication process begins March 6, 2012. Students who reapply by the deadline are then eligible to participate in the room selection process. A $1000 non-refundable/non-transferable application fee and the online application are due by March 21, 2012. Dates are as follows.

  • March 6-21: Phase 1 - Housing Re-application for eligible returning students
  • March 21: $1000 non-refundable/non-transferable reservation deposit / application due
  • April 3-17: Phase 2 - Group Registration
  • April 24 - May 4: Phase 3 - Room Selection

Note that students will be notified by email and promotions in the residence halls, reminding them of the reapplication process and upcoming deadlines. Additional details will be available once the reapplication process launches at www.nyu.edu/living. Contact the Department of Residential Life and Housing Services at 212-998-4600 for additional questions.

With a new semester comes new expectations and resolutions. One of them is meeting people and getting involved. Encouraging your student to join a student organization is one of the best ways to help your student feel a sense of community and connectedness. The University provides a variety of ways for students to get involved in clubs, athletics, societies and organizations. Whether it’s within residence halls, on an intramural teams or volunteering, getting involved is a great way for students to meet others and become immersed within the NYU community. For more information, go to: http://www.nyu.edu/life/student-life/getting-involved.html

Additionally, the Spring Semester brings plenty of opportunities to apply for leadership positions that will begin next Fall. The various student leadership positions on campus are part of programs that are a great way to get connected to the university community, build new skills, explore interests and career paths, and make friends. Applications will be available February 14, 2012. Click on the following positions for more details:

Welcome Week Leader | Transfer Ambassadors | Commuter Assistant

NYU students have an enviable opportunity to complement their degree program with an experience learning and exploring away from New York.  Beginning in fall 2012 students can enroll for a semester at NYU Washington, DC to learn and intern in the US capital, or experience life down under at NYU Sydney. NYU encourages students to take an academic journey led by top local scholars, artists, and professionals at NYU's facilities in Argentina, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Ghana, Israel, Italy, Spain, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom. Students can also choose from 25 international summer programs, or to participate in the University's international exchange program with some of the world’s most prestigious universities in 12 countries. Parent specific information is available by clicking on individual location tabs and then clicking the Parents tab. Applications are now being accepted with priority consideration given to students who apply by February 15th. For more information, visit www.nyu.edu/studyaway.
