All NYU Summer Programs are academically rigorous in which each student’s active and supportive participation is highly valued. Programs are intensive, involving a variety of classroom study, homework assignments, activities, and events that are intellectually demanding and time-consuming. Students will have the opportunity to contribute to and benefit from participation in a unique community of peers and must be respectful of others and thoughtful about the impact of their actions upon the community. The aim of NYU Summer Programs is to provide students with a college experience. Therefore, students are held to the expectations of undergraduates inside and outside the classroom.

The rules and policies that follow have been established to optimize the academic, personal, and social experience of all students. Any questions about the rules, policies, and information included in the Handbook may be addressed to NYU Summer Programs at 212-998-2292 or university.programs@nyu.edu.
