Email is our primary method of communication. All communications regarding your enrollment, including your admissions decision, will be communicated to you via the email address that you designate as your primary email address on the enrollment form. Please check this email account regularly, as you will be receiving communications that are often time-sensitive and require a response.

Make sure to allow emails from tisch.special.admissions@nyu.edu, tisch.special.services@nyu.edu, and university.programs@nyu.edu to be viewed. 


You must submit the following items:

  • Your completed online enrollment form for Summer 2021. 
  • If applicable, email tisch.special.admissions@nyu.edu with your English language proficiency test results (non-native English-speaking applicants only).


  • Once you submit the enrollment form, you will receive a message confirming the form has been submitted; however, this does not guarantee your spot in the course.

  • Please wait to receive an email from tisch.special.admissions@nyu.edu confirming your enrollment status (enrolled or waitlisted).

  • Further communication from Smashcut (the online course platform), University Programs, and Tisch Special Programs will be sent to you closer to the start date of the class.


  • Enrollment forms are processed on a rolling basis and registration is first come, first served.
  • To secure enrollment, your notification email will include a required deposit payment and a final payment deadline.
  • Tisch Special Programs will register you after the course deposit is received.
  • If enrollment for a course reaches capacity, additional registrants will be added to a waitlist. Waitlisted candidates will be notified if additional space in the class becomes available.


A deposit of $2,152 and the final payment can be made via NYU eSuite, NYU's eCheck system. International students must confirm your participation by paying via Flywire, NYU's wire transfer system. Instructions for third-party payments are available on the NYU Bursar's website.

NYU does not accept credit card payments.

Tisch Special Programs reserves the right to rescind admission to any student whose full payment is not received by the Bursar by the payment deadline.

It is important that you review and understand the Tisch Special Programs Cancellation Policy prior to submitting your payment.
