Information pertaining to admissions and to the application process can be found on the Apply Now page.
Visiting students must submit a personal statement and an official academic transcript in addition to their application form.

Students register for courses on Albert. Study Away courses are found using the dropdown menu labeled "Study Away/Course Location" on the right hand side of the course search. More detailed registration instructions are found in the Admitted Students Guides. Students should register by their confirmation deadline.
Students wishing to take more than 8 credits may contact their home school for approval. CAS students may petition the Office of the Associate Dean for Students (Silver Center, Room 909, 212-998-8140)
All CAS students are required to receive advisor approval prior to registering for summer classes, as is the case for Fall and Spring semester registration. CAS Students can make an advisor appointment by calling the Advising Center at 212-998-8130.
Students are notified of an admission decision within two weeks of the stated application deadline. For example, if you apply by February 1, you will receive your admission decision around February 15. To secure a spot in the program, students submit a nonrefundable, nontransferable $500 reservation fee within two weeks of their acceptance notification.
Once a student has confirmed admission and registered for the proper amount of credits, the Office of the Bursar will issue a billing statement. You can visit the NYU Bursar website for complete billing information and instructions.
Please note that other costs associated with CAS Summer Abroad, such as housing, and the program and activities fee, are generated throughout the spring and will be applied to your summer bursar bill.
There are a number of financial resources available to students who wish to participate in CAS Summer Abroad. Please see information below and on the Financial Assistance page.
All admitted students are automatically referred to NYU's Office of Global Services for review, but ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to make all necessary arrangements to obtain a visa, if one is needed for travel on a summer abroad program. There are many resources at NYU to assist you, including the Office of Global Services, and tools like GlobalChek Plus located on NYU Home. You can access additional resources on Visas for NYU Study Abroad page.
Please note that depending on citizenship, obtaining a visa can be a lengthy process. Students are encouraged to plan well in advance.
In addition, there are walk-in hours for non-U.S. visa services Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 1:00-4:00pm at 561 LaGuardia Place.
In most cases, it is mandatory for CAS Summer Abroad participants to stay in NYU provided housing for the duration of the program. NYU provided housing offers an immersive, community experience in locations carefully chosen for their safety, convenience and offered amenities.
Housing exemption requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and they are granted in very specific circumstances. The deadline to submit housing exemption requests is April 15. To make a request, please contact, email@example.com.
