Schedule an Online Appointment with an OGS Advisor
Can’t make it to our office? Out of the NYC area and need to speak with an OGS advisor one-on-one? Schedule an online appointment!
Please note that this service is intended for newly admitted and currently enrolled NYU students in addition to NYU alumni. If you are a prospective student, please review NYU admissions information. If you are an NYU staff or faculty member, please contact us.
To make an appointment, make sure you are logged into your NYU email or your preferred email account for OGS to contact you regarding your appointment.
In the same browser that you are logged into your preferred email account, click the link to access the OGS Appointment Calendar. Please be sure that the email address you’re using makes clear who you are so that an OGS advisor will know who will be attending the appointment.
Select the slot on the calendar that you wish to book. Press save. Please do not type anything or change any of the text before clicking ‘save.’
Pro Tip: Pay attention to the time zone that is currently associated with your Google calendar when you schedule your appointment. Use Google Calendar in different time zones for more information. All OGS Appointments have a time zone attached to them--and everyone will see the appointment time in their own time zone.
Receive a confirmation email once you’ve scheduled your appointment time. Google automatically sends this to you as confirmation that your appointment is booked.
Pro Tip: If you want to give the advisor some information on the topic you’d like to discuss during your appointment, once you’ve booked it and received the confirmation email, click the “more options” link in the section of the email that asks if you are going.
If you then hover over the advisor name listed between your name and the “OGS Appointments” organizer, you will see the email address of the advisor you will be speaking with. Feel free to email them ahead of time with the details of your topic. Keep in mind that this is completely optional.
Before the meeting, please review how to join a zoom meeting if you haven’t used Zoom before.
At your scheduled appointment time, be sure to have a good internet connection (WiFi is recommended) and a quiet place, if possible, to speak. Having a headset or earphones can help make your surroundings less distracting and minimize the noise level around you. Go to the Zoom meeting room linked in your appointment confirmation email. Type your name to enter the room at your scheduled time. Please use the same name associated with your appointment. If the name is too different, it is difficult for an advisor to tell if the person waiting to enter the meeting room is the same person who made the appointment for that time.
Once you enter the meeting room, please be prepared to show your passport photo page or NYU ID card at the start of your appointment so that we can confirm your identity. Also, be on time! Our appointments are scheduled one right after the other, so if you show up late, we still need to end at the same time. If you will be more than 10 minutes late, it’s best for you to reschedule for another appointment.
