We have created a series of emails just for our new and transfer international students. These emails contain very important immigration information and various resources to help you acclimate to NYU and the US.

They are compiled here in a list and are added to this page as we send them. International students with with Spring 2023 (January 1 - March 1) start dates begin receiving these emails in November 2022; students with Summer 2023 (May 15 - July 15) start dates begin receiving these emails in March 2023; students with Fall 2023 start dates (August 1 - October 1) begin receiving these emails in July 2023.
