Congratulations on your admission to the Liberal Studies Core Program at New York University. We are excited to have you join our community of students and scholars in Spring 2018. We commend you on your outstanding academic credentials. Only a small number of the more than 67,000 applicants to NYU have the opportunity to join the Core Program, and you should be very proud to be among them.
The Core Program allows you to explore NYU’s many offerings with the benefits of a traditional liberal arts college. Small classes and individualized advising encourage you to tailor the NYU experience to your goals and interests. The interdisciplinary academic foundation provided by our global great works curriculum and the classes selected in NYU’s other liberal arts colleges prepare you for transition into your chosen degree program as a junior.
Spring admission will allow you to graduate in May 2021, the same graduation date as students who enter in Fall 2017. Academic advisors are available to support you throughout your time in Liberal Studies, helping answer questions you might have about course selection, graduation requirements, academic options, leadership and service opportunities, and more. Please feel free to contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
New Student Experience
Liberal Studies Advising Groups offer first-year students the opportunity to establish a small community during orientation and throughout their first semester. The advising groups provide a welcoming and supportive environment through which to build relationships with your peers, your academic advisor, and your student leaders, in addition to learning important information about advisement and registration. In particular, your new student experience will include:
Residence Hall Move-In: January 16, 2018
For students living on-campus, look for an email from the the Office of Housing and Residential Life which will provide you information on your housing assignment, as well as move-in instructions on January 8, 2018.
NYU Spring Welcome: January 22 - February 16, 2018
NYU Spring Welcome hosts over 200 events for new and returning students! The welcome activities take place during the first few weeks of the spring semester, offering a series of special events, information sessions and meetups for all students to kickstart the new semester. Recommended activities will be highlighted in welcome materials from your advisor, though you are welcome to attend as much as possible. For a preview, click here.
Upcoming Communications (Anticipated)
Throughout the summer and fall, we will outreach to help keep you informed about opportunities, expectations and deadlines, preparing for your enrollment with NYU Liberal Studies. Please remember to check your NYU email account periodically, and watch out for messages from your advisor.
