CAS Summer Abroad course offerings are being held remotely for summer 2021. You may review individual program pages below or see available courses on this dedicated list.
There is no application process for summer 2021. Any student cleared to register for NYU Summer 2021 may do so for remote offerings directly via NYU Albert.
Visiting students wishing to participate in courses will first need to apply to NYU 2021 summer session through University Programs. Following admission, visiting students will be directed to NYU Albert to register.
Can I apply to more than one CAS Summer Abroad program?
Students are welcome to participate in multiple CAS Summer Abroad programs as long as the program dates do not overlap. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to submit a second application.
I'm an NYU student. What do I need to submit with my application?
NYU students need only to complete their application, provide a short personal statement, and upload an unofficial transcript. No additional documents or recommendation letters are required.
Current NYU students from any undergraduate college/school may submit an application. Log into the application with your NYU net ID and password.
Information pertaining to admissions and to the application process can be found on the Apply Now page.
I'm a visiting student. What do I need to submit with my application?
Visiting students must submit a personal statement and an unofficial academic transcript in addition to their application form. No recommendations are necessary.
Visiting students (students currently matriculated at another US accredited institution) who would like to apply must create an application ID.
Upon admission and confirmation for the CAS Summer Abroad program, an official academic transcript is necessary.
Official academic transcripts may be sent to:
NYU Office of Global Programs
383 Lafayette Street
New York, NY 10003
Official transcripts from your university may also be emailed to email@example.com.
I'm going to graduate this Spring, can I still participate in CAS Summer Abroad Programs?
Yes! If you are an NYU student, please make an appointment to talk to your advisor about taking courses over the summer prior to applying. If you are an international student, please contact your advisor about the possibility of extending your visa status.
If you are a visiting student you are also welcome to apply! Please note that if you decide to participate the only classes available are undergraduate courses, and you would still be responsible for all associated program fees, tuition costs, housing, etc.
How do I request my official transcript?
If you would like an official transcript once you have completed the program, you must submit a transcript request to the Office of the University Registrar. The Transcript Request form is available on the NYU Office of the Registrar's website.
Please contact NYU's Office of Registrar directly with further questions.
In accordance with the general practice of colleges and universities, complete official transcripts and certifications are sent directly by the University. A partial transcript of a University record may not be issued. Once a final examination period has begun, no transcript will be forwarded for any student who is currently enrolled in courses until all the student's final grades have been received and recorded. Please notify the Office of the University Registrar immediately of any change of address.
I've been admitted, but how do I confirm my spot in the program?
In order to confirm your intention to enroll, you must accept your offer of admission. Please see our Admitted students page for more details.
How do I register for my summer abroad courses?
Students register for courses on Albert and will need registration clearance from their academic advisor for the summer term.
Students can search for Summer classes using the Undergraduate Course Search. Please note that you will need to select, under the "Global & Other Study Away Sites" found on the right hand side, the site that you will be going to. This will filter out other courses and allow you to see the College of Arts and Science courses you may participate in.
For assistance using Albert, please view the Albert registration guides.
Review academic requirements listed on your program’s website & all Albert course notes.
Note, add/drop deadlines vary by session, we recommend you refer to the Registration Calendar for specific dates and deadlines.
If you are unable to make course changes to your schedule in Albert or require other registration assistance, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Students should register by their confirmation deadline.
Why do I have an advisor hold for summer registration?
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.
Can I register for more than/less than 8 credits?
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).
However, programs that have 8 credit courseloads cannot take less than the required 8 credits. If you would like to take less than 8 credits over the summer, please take a look at our other Summer Programs such as Summer in Brazil, Summer Internship in D.C. or Urban Design in London.
How do I apply for a housing exemption?
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, you can view the link listed in your Enrollment Portal Checklist, or you may contact email@example.com.
What is the payment schedule for CAS Summer Abroad programs?
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.
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.
What financial aid is available for CAS Summer Abroad programs?
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.
- The CAS Dean's Opportunity Fund for Study Away is a need-based scholarship designated for eligible CAS matriculated students. Please note that you must be accepted to the program and secure your spot by confirming your place in the program before applying for this funding.
- Summer financial aid is available for all students who are taking at least 6 credits during the summer term. It can be applied to summer on-campus courses as well as CAS Summer Abroad courses. Read more about Summer Financial Aid on their website. Visiting students, please speak to your home institution about applying financial aid to a CAS Summer Abroad program through a consortium agreement.
- There are many external study abroad funding resources that you can research independently. Please note that these opportunities are not administered by NYU, and students must contact the organizations directly for more information. Deadlines are coming up, so make sure to review soon.
Do I need a visa to study abroad this summer?
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 the 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, depending on your nationality and destination country, you may need a separate transit visa to make a connection in a foreign airport or cross through a foreign country. A transit visa is a visa that is valid for a very short period. Some countries have both transit visas and airport transit visas.
If required to transit through one or more countries to reach a destination, the traveler should check with their embassy and airline or authorized travel representative to determine whether one or more transit visa(s) are required. If required, it will be the traveler’s responsibility to secure the appropriate transit visa(s) prior to departure.
When is the move-in/move-out date(s) for my program?
NYU Housing is only provided for the exact dates of your summer program. The first day of the program is the day you are expected to arrive, and the last day of the program is when you are expected to depart.
Should you arrive earlier or leave later than your program's exact dates you will need to find alternative accommodations.
