Questions about your financial aid, your bill, a payment, or your transcript? A StudentLink Counselor can help you with that! There are three ways in which you can speak with a StudentLink Counselor: in-person, via Zoom, or through email. We encourage students to use our online services whenever possible in order to reduce density at our centers. Together, we can keep each other safe! Regardless of the method you choose, we're committed to bringing you the same great service you've come to expect from StudentLink.
Our location in Manhattan is open but with a few modifications. Students* will be required to book an appointment online to meet with a StudentLink Counselor in order to ensure reduced density in our center.
Select which center you'd like to visit and then select StudentLink Appointments to begin. You'll then be able to select a date and time that works best for you.
You can schedule a Zoom meeting with a StudentLink Counselor! Counselors will be available Monday - Friday from 9am to 5pm ET. Follow the instructions below to schedule an appointment:
- Click on Book Zoom Appointment.
- Make sure you're signed into your NYU email. Click on any of the available time slots. (Note the time zone of your NYU calendar. It may be different than ET.)
- Click "save" for the appointment slot you wish to make. (Please try to make one appointment only.)
- The appointment and the details should then show up on your own Google calendar.
- On the day and time of your appointment, return to your own Google calendar and click the Zoom link.
- Wait for the StudentLink Counselor to admit you into the Zoom meeting.
You can also email your questions to StudentLink and a Counselor will review your account and respond to you. Email firstname.lastname@example.org from your NYU email and our staff will get back to you within two business days.
International students and students studing away continue to be supported by the Office of Global Services remotely. However, some in-person services are resuming. Check the options below for more information.

Students are encouraged to conduct and receive digital documents in order to minimize in-person contact. Due to the COVID-19 situation and based on recent guidance from the US government, Office of Global Services staff are currently issuing digitally signed I-20s. This means that if you are a student in F-1 status and you apply for anything requiring a new I-20 (for example, a travel signature, OPT, CPT, etc.), you will receive a digital I-20 at your NYU email account instead of receiving a new, printed I-20 once your document is ready.
Students in J-1 status will still receive a printed DS-2019 if they require a new DS-2019 as government guidance has not yet been released on digital DS-2019s. Students that must physically pick up their documents may do so at the StudentLink Center.
Students who only need to pick up their OGS document do not require an appointment. Before arriving at the Center, students should check for the following:
- Received an email from OGS notifying them that the document is available at the StudentLink Center location,
- Check the document pick up location on the email, and
- Do not arrive before your document pick up time. Due to social distancing, the StudentLink Center locations will not have sufficient waiting spaces.
Although OGS does not advise for you to travel internationally at this time, if you are traveling and need a travel signature on your I-20 or DS-2019, you may request a travel signature remotely by completing the OGS document release form.
Students looking to make in-person payments (cash, check, or money order) or pick up petty cash reimbursements may do so at the Manhattan StudentLink Center location. Those looking to pick up their payroll check, please refer to this map for your assigned pick up location. Payroll pickup location is based on your work location.
IMPORTANT: Between June 21st and August 27th, payroll checks usually picked up in Brooklyn will be available in Manhattan.
Once you're ready to come in, simply select which center you'd like to visit and then select the service that best fits your needs to get a spot in line. An appointment is not needed for these services.
- Payment Only: Make a payment using cash, check, or money order
- Payroll Pickup: Pick up a paycheck
- Petty Cash: Pick up cash for a student reimbursement
Students and alumni are encouraged to submit a transcript request online which NYU will send by mail (free of charge) or email.
Should you need your transcript more urgrently, in-person transcript requests have resumed at both of our centers. Simply make an appointment and we'll provide your transcript on the spot.
Students are highly encouraged to request an enrollment verification online which can be downloaded immediately from Albert. If you cannot access Albert, NYU can also send by an enrollment verification by mail or email. Alumni may also request a degree verification letter.
Enrollment and Degree Verifications can also be provided in-person at one of our centers. Please make an appointment should you prefer this option.
Students should request your diploma to be mailed by contacting Graduation Services. Due to the the health and safety guidelines, alumni are not able to access campus buildings at this time.
Passport Photo Services
Passport photo services are currently only available at the Manhattan StudentLink Center.
This service is available Monday - Friday, 9:30am - 4:30pm. No appointment is needed.
Your passport photographs can be taken and printed the same day. Every passport photo meets strict U.S. government requirements (2 inches by 2 inches). Please check to determine if these requirements also meet your consulate/application requirements. Payment must be made with a credit or debit card online prior to having your photograph taken.
Please note that a digital copy is not provided.
NOTE: While in our centers, all visitors are required to comply with NYU's health protocols. This includes wearing a mask, keeping six feet of distance from others, and being authorized to be on campus (including the completion of the Daily COVID-19 Screener).
Due to current NYU guidelines, we are only able to allow current students, faculty, and staff who have met building access protocols into our centers for passport photo services. Alumni and NYU community members who do not have building access clearance, are unable to use this service.
If you're in New York City, and require an original notary signature on a document, you may book an appointment to have a StudentLink Counselor notarize your document. Please ensure you bring a government-issued photo ID when having documents notarized. It is important that documents remain unsigned until in front of one of our notaries.
New York Executive Order 202.7, which allowed for remote notarial acts, expired on June 24, 2021. The StudentLink Center is no longer able to offer online notary services.
