Confirm your spot in the program
You must accept your offer of admission in order to confirm your intention to enroll via your Enrollment Portal.
An Important Note: All students are recommended to confirm their spot within 2 weeks of receiving notification of acceptance. Please understand that enrollment capacity is limited and if the program reaches capacity before we receive your reservation, you will be placed on a wait list.
Read your Online Guide
To help prepare you for your semester or year away, your site representative has created an Online Guide specifically for your program and term. This guide will be your main point of reference throughout the pre-departure process. All students need to be aware that this guide 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 that you – and your parents – read the guides to make sure you don’t miss a thing.
Please see link below for this term's Online Pre-Departure Guide.
Complete the immigration process
NYU’s Office of Global Services (OGS) will be your main contact in navigating the immigration and visa process. Review step-by-step instructions on what you need to do on the Before You Travel page. If you have any questions on the visa process, contact Outbound Services in OGS.
Obtain a Valid Passport
If you don’t have a passport that is valid through the required period after the end of the program, apply for one today! Check out travel.state.gov for more information. We suggest that you request “expedited processing” (two week turnaround time) to allow plenty of time to apply for your student visa. If you do not have two weeks to spare, you can go to the US Passport Agency to request a passport the same day. For a Passport Agency near you and for more information, please refer to their website. Prior to going to the Passport Agency, please contact someone from our office so that we can provide you with the appropriate letter.
Update NYUHome ASAP
NYU Students: We'll send all e-mail communication to your NYU e-mail address (not your personal or Stern 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.
Visiting Students: You created an NYUHome account when applying for the program. Please make sure you keep all contact information current and check your NYUHome e-mail account regularly.

Visiting Students: If you’re nearby and able to attend any on-campus events, we’d love to have you. However, we’re also committed to making sure that those of you who don’t live near New York City are kept in the loop. Here are a few ways we ensure that you’re just as well-informed as NYU students:
- We will send you regular e-mails with comprehensive “what to do” lists and details and post information about the pre-departure process to the site specific blogs.
- Our staff is always available to provide prompt assistance to any questions you have by e-mail or phone.
- We can put you in contact with students who attend our programs so that you can get inside information on what to expect. To get in touch with a former student from your program, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
