Welcome to NYU! We're so happy you're here.
Now for some serious information: the US government requires all new NYU international students to report their arrival to NYU. To do this, follow the steps listed on this page. And please remember, if you don’t follow these steps, you risk losing your ability to remain legally in the US.
You won’t be able to provide us with these documents until after your arrival to the US. You could scan your documents for free at NYU ITS locations. You will need to have copies (pdf or jpg) of these documents available to complete the form:
Learn the basics of keeping legal in the US as an F-1 or J-1 international student, employment in the US, cultural adjustment and coping skills, US classroom culture, safety and security, and more.
If you see your school name next to a session below, it's best for you to go to that session. Please note, if you see a session with a school name, only attend it if you are in that school (for example only CAS students should attend the International Student Orientation for CAS) because the session is specifically designed for students in that school. If your school isn't listed below, feel free to attend any session without a school name included in the title.
