Recommendations

Register for Accessibility Services and Accommodations

The Moses Center for Student Accessibility provides services and programs for students with disabilities. Please refer to the Moses website for information about arranging for accommodations before or after you start at NYU. You can request accommodations at any time, however, doing so early guarantees access to services the moment you start at NYU.

Chronic Conditions

If you have a chronic medical condition or are in treatment with a psychotherapist and/or psychiatrist, please let us know using the Health History Form. You can also submit relevant medical records by mail to:

Health Information Management Services
726 Broadway, 3rd Floor, Suite 336
New York, NY 10003-9580
Phone: (212) 443-1272
Fax: (212) 443-1002

A college health specialist will connect you with appropriate support services at the Student Health Center or with local providers. Please ensure that this happens prior to the start of the semester.  

If you need further assistance in clarifying what steps to take to transition health and mental health treatment, contact the Wellness Exchange. The Wellness Exchange is ready to assist and respond to your questions and concerns 24/7.

Tuition Insurance

Tuition insurance is available and is recommended to protect against unanticipated financial consequences if a student must request a leave of absence because of physical and/or psychological illness. There are important exclusions, so please read the policy very carefully. For more information please visit gradguard.com/insurance.
