Dear NYU Parents-
A warm welcome to parents of new NYU students and welcome back to those of you who have been with us! By now, students have begun to settle into classes, connect with new and old friends, and hopefully attend a number of Spring Welcome programs. In this newsletter, we remind you of how we communicate to students during inclement weather, as well as provide pertinent information regarding tax forms, study away opportunities, graduation, and the housing re-application process. As always, should you have topics you would like to see in these monthly newsletters, let me know. Happy New Year -- David Vogelsang, Executive Director
Graduation and School Ceremonies
In preparation for May graduation in New York, the Senior Class Activities Board is hosting "100 Nights Before Commencement" -- a graduation information fair and celebration. Representatives will be on hand to answer questions about Commencement, school-specific graduation ceremonies, photos, rings, diplomas, tickets, and other relative details. Additional graduation Information is also available at www.nyu.edu/commencement. Note that most communications will be sent directly to students by email.
On-Campus Housing: Looking Ahead
2018-2019 HOUSING REAPPLICATION: All students who wish to stay in housing next year will need to complete the re-application process for 2018-2019 which begins on February 26 with an on-line application and $1,000 housing reservation payment due by March 9. Eligible students who miss the March 9 deadline will lose their housing guarantee for all future terms.
Study Abroad / Study Away
NYU students have an enviable opportunity to complement their degree program with an experience learning and exploring away from New York. NYU encourages students to take an academic journey led by top local scholars, artists, and professionals at NYU's facilities in Abu Dhabi, Accra, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Florence, London, Madrid, Paris, Prague, Shanghai, Sydney, Tel Aviv, and Washington DC. Students can also choose from international summer programs, or to participate in the University's international exchange program with some of the world's most prestigious universities. Parent specific information is available on the website, nyu.edu/global/parents. Applications are now being accepted with priority consideration given to students who apply by February 15th. Visit www.nyu.edu/studyaway for more details.
Life Beyond the Square
The NYU Wasserman Center for Career Development is pleased to share its annual report, "Life Beyond the Square," on job placement for last year's NYC graduating class. It's never too early for your student to take advantage of the various resources and staff available to assist students in their career planning and job search.
IRS Form 1098-T, entitled "Tuition Statement," contains information to assist the IRS and students or parents in determining eligibility to claim educational related tax credits such as the American Opportunity Credit and Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. The form is available for eligible students annually by January 31 via NYU eSuite. Additional details, including instructions about receiving the form electronically, are available on the Bursar's website. Click here for more information. For students employed on campus, information on how your student may obtain a copy of their W2 Form is available here >>
Please know that in the event of inclement weather the University will notify students of closings or delays via their NYU email address and post notifications on the Safe NYU Mobile App, NYU website, Facebook and Twitter. Under extreme conditions, our Department of Public Safety will notify students via text message. Students may also call the InfoAlert Recorded Hotline at 212-998-1220 located on the back of their NYU ID. For students finding it difficult to travel when the University is open during inclement weather, they should communicate directly with their faculty and teachers if they are unable to make it to class.
