Information for International Students

Currently studying IN the United States - International students studying in the US (at NYU or at another academic institution) who have a F-1 or J-1 visa are not required to submit additional visa documentation to enroll in courses at NYU.

Currently studying OUTSIDE the United States - NYU requires international students enrolling in courses to have an F-1 or J-1 visa. The NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) can assist you in obtaining an I-20 to process your F-1 or J-1 visa. After accepting your place in the program and payment of your confirmation deposit has been received, you will receive instructions for submitting the I-20/DS-2019 application. The I-20 is the immigration document used to apply for your F-1 student visa. In order to obtain the I-20, students will need to turn in a complete application to the OGS office. You will need your student identification number or Nnumber to fill out the application. This Nnumber will have been included in your acceptance email to the Tisch Summer High School Program.

Please go to the OGS portal to complete your application.

Incomplete applications will be placed on administrative hold until a complete application is received. If you have any questions related to this application, please contact OGS at newinternationalstudents@nyu.edu. To ensure adequate time for visa processing, send applications to OGS as soon as you can.

Processing within the Office of Global Services takes about 2 weeks. When your I-20 is ready, they will send the document to your preferred address. Once you receive the I-20, you will see your SEVIS** number over the barcode.  You can use your SEVIS ID to pay your SEVIS fee and schedule an appointment with the US Consulate abroad to obtain your F-1 student visa. You shouldn’t schedule an appointment at your embassy without the I-20 form, but we encourage you to visit their website so you know what the timeline may be for any required security checks. Contact them with specific visa related questions at newinternationalstudents@nyu.edu.

*Please note - International students are required to have NYU health insurance or equivalent and will be automatically enrolled in the comprehensive plan. The cost of comprehensive NYU health insurance for one month is $300 for international students. These summer health insurance rates are valid for the length of the Tisch Summer High School program takes place between July 12th and August 8th. Please visit here for a waiver or call (212) 443-1020. Contact the Student Health Insurance Services at (212) 443-1020 for any insurance-related questions. Each student and dependent who is enrolled in the Comprehensive Plans will receive an insurance identification card at their permanent address within the United States. Instructions on how to access the complete plan brochure online will be included with the ID cards. If your permanent address is outside the United States, please contact CHP at (877) 373-1170 orwww.chpstudent.com/nyu and provide them with your local address. If you do not receive the ID card within three weeks of the effective date of the policy or within three weeks of your request to enroll in the plan (whichever is later), please contact CHP at (877) 373-1170 or atwww.chpstudent.com/nyu. An online ID card can be obtained by going to the CHP web site shown above. Click the link for “Online ID Card.” We encourage you to carry your NYU and health insurance cards at all times

**Please note - It is the policy of New York University that an International Student Fee ($90) is charged to an international student every time the student registers for class. Students enrolled for summer classes will be charged only once for the summer. Additionally, students will be responsible for paying the SEVIS fee, a U.S. Government fee that supports the operation of the Student Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).

Note to international students from NYU Office of Global Services (OGS): Individuals who enter the U.S. on a B visa (tourist) or visa waiver are not eligible to participate in a course of study at NYU as a visiting student. An F-1 or J-1 student is a nonimmigrant who is pursuing a "full course of study" to achieve a specific educational objective at an academic institution in the United States. Once the educational objective has been achieved, the F-1 or J-1 student is expected by the U.S. government to depart the U.S. Pursuant to these guidelines, University Programs sessions at New York University are designed to be singular academic experiences for international students. Therefore, international students are encouraged to have one such experience per year, and should not plan to apply for more than one University Programs session per year. Please contact OGS to clarify any questions related to your particular educational objective.

**Remember when entering the U.S.: Be sure to show your F-1 or J-1 student visa and I-20 (also their SEVIS fee receipt) to Customs and Border Protection (CBP) and make sure they mark "F-1 D/S" in your passport. Do not enter on the tourist visa of your parent or guardian at the airport.** 

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security requires all international students with a J-1 or F-1 visa facilitated by NYU to report their arrival at NYU to the Office of Global Services(OGS). OGS will host a check-in to help you meet this requirement. Check-in for Washington Square-based students will take place during the first couple of days of the program. Required documents to bring to check-in are:

  • Passport

  • I-94 record

    • Print-out of electronic I-94 record/Paper I-94 card

    • Or print-out of "Not found" page from CBP.gov/I94

  • I-20 or DS-2019

Failure to check-in may jeopardize your ability to legally remain in the United States. Information about the mandatory check-in is online at the OGS website.

International students with any questions about their student status or experience at NYU prior to or during the program should contact the Office of Global Services at ogs@nyu.eduor 212-998-4720.

Counseling Services (212-998-4780) provides free consultations, short-term psychotherapy, psychiatric services, group therapy, and outreach services.  Though the Counseling Service does not provide long-term psycho-therapeutic or psychiatric services, they can provide referrals and help students utilize a variety of options in the community.

Moses Center for Student Accessibility

New York University is committed to providing equal educational opportunity and participation for students with disabilities. It is the University’s policy that no qualified student with a disability be excluded from participating in any University program or activity, denied the benefits of any University program or activity, or otherwise subjected to discrimination with regard to any University program or activity. The Moses Center for Student Accessibility (CSA) determines qualified disability status and assists students in obtaining appropriate accommodations and services. CSA operates according to an “Independent Living Philosophy”, and strives in its policies and practices to empower each student to become as independent as possible. Our services are designed to encourage independence, backed by a strong system of support.

Any student who needs a reasonable accommodation based on a qualified disability is required to register with the CSA for assistance. Please visit here for information.

The Student Health Center

The Student Health Center (212-443-1000) offers an array of services directed at student wellness and prevention, including programs dealing with substance abuse, nutrition and eating concerns, and relationship issues. Medical services for urgent care only are available at the Health Center. Please refer to the guidelines and more information about what constitutes as "urgent care" and how to make an appointment. Medical Service hours can be found here.

NYU CAMPUS INFORMATION

NYU DINING SERVICES

As part of your program, most students are automatically enrolled in a 10 meal and $30 Dining Dollars per week plan. You will use your NYUCard to "swipe" for each meal and use it as a dining debit card when purchasing snacks and items with Dining Dollars. You can increase your meal plan before you arrive (other meal plan options are listed below).

Changes and cancellations are effective the first Sunday following the date the request is received. To change your meal plan, please visit the NYU Meal Plan Portal. If you have questions about your meal plan, please email dining.services@nyu.edu. Let them know you are a Tisch Summer High School Program student. You will also need to include your N# or Student ID number which you will have received in your acceptance email to the program.

*Note: Film students are strongly encouraged by the Film department to enroll in a 17 meals a week plan due to their shooting schedule.*

Summer Meal Plans - 2021 (prices below are estimates from summer 2020; summer 2021 rates will be announced soon)

CAMPUS CASH

Besides being your valid form of NYU identification, your NYUCard may be activated like a debit account; a convenient alternative to cash. The Campus Cash account is provided to students (taking credit bearing courses), faculty, and staff at New York University. Summer Housing residents may also participate in the program. Working much like a bank debit card, money can be placed in an account that can be drawn upon for purchase of goods and services at over 250 locations across campus and can be used to operate the laundry room in the residence hall. If you have questions about campus cash, you can email AskCampusServices@nyu.edu or call 212-998-4900.

Health and Wellness

Health Insurance

Only international students are enrolled in NYU student health insurance. All domestic high school students are required to maintain their own domestic health insurance. While ALL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS have access to comprehensive services at the Student Health Center (SHC) through appointment or walk-in services (all visits to SHC's Urgent Care area will incur a $10 fee), students should check with their own insurance provider to see if the NYU Student Health Center is included in their network and to determine which clinics and/or doctors in New York City are within network. If a student's domestic coverage does not include the NYU Student Health Center, students will be billed on an out-of-network basis.

Students should be sure their insurance coverage provides both mental health and general health benefits and covers both in-patient (hospital) as well as out-patient services. Even with insurance, students may pay out-of-pocket for some services then submit claim forms for reimbursement and should plan for both on-going and possible emergency costs to be paid out-of-pocket.

All students are required to bring a copy of their insurance card with them to the program and to carry it with them at all times in case of an emergency.

Wellness

During the high school program, students will experience exciting opportunities that will enrich their lives and give them a better sense of themselves and the world around them.  As with all new experiences, however, there are potential stressors as well. In some cases, students may need the support of medical and mental health professionals. Although spending time at NYU will, in many ways, be a new beginning, it is important that students continue any counseling or medical treatment while here (and continue to take any medication they may already be taking) to make sure they are feeling their best and can fully enjoy their experience.

It is important for you to arrange beforehand to have mental health or related services available here. NYU does not offer long-term psychotherapy or ongoing psychiatric services for students.  Instead, students who need regular and frequent care are encouraged to get referrals to private mental health providers in the city. There may be a delay in making an appointment depending on availability, so it is best to start this process as early as possible. Also, students should make sure to have access to the prescription medications they may need, by either securing enough medication for the entire duration or plan for access to a local mental health professional who can write prescriptions.

Wellness Exchange is the key to accessing NYU's extensive health and mental health resources. A central feature common to all these services is a private, 24/7 hotline that puts students in touch with professionals who can help them address day-to-day challenges as well as other health-related concerns including medical issues, academic stress, depression, sexual assault, anxiety, alcohol and other drug dependence, sexually transmitted infections and eating disorders. The Wellness Exchange is also available for students who just need to talk—for whatever reason.  You can access the Wellness Exchange anytime at 212-443-9999 or at www.nyu.edu/999.

COLLEGE CREDIT AND COURSE INFORMATION

All grades will be posted by September, but academic transcripts ARE NOT automatically sent at the end of the summer. If students would like an academic transcript, they can submit a request by:

  • Visiting the Registrar’s Office located at the StudentLink Center (383 Lafayette Street, 1st Floor)

  • More information can be found on the registrar’s website.

Transcripts can be requested at any time. When making requests in person, photo ID must be presented. Mailed or faxed requests require the signature of the student. Only the student can make a request for his or her grades. Please note that any students who have not completely paid all charges attributed to their program will not be able to request a transcript until their Bursar account is settled.

Students may leave with their parents on Friday evening, however, because the evening is looked at as the “completion” of the program, we strongly encourage your child to be in attendance. More information on the final day's events will be posted later this summer. 

In order to successfully check out of the residence hall, please follow the steps below:

1. PACK ITEMS AND REMOVE ALL TRASH - Pack up and remove ALL personal belongings and trash from your space. Failure to do so will result in a minimum $150 fine!

2. GO TO THE RESOURCE CENTER AND GET YOUR ROOM INSPECTED - After packing ALL personal belongings and removing all trash, go to the Resource Center to request a room inspection. A staff member will come to your room to verify that the room is ready for check-out and check for any damages.

Note: Although we will try to inspect your room right away, please allow for a one-hour wait when requesting a room inspection

3. GO TO THE RESOURCE CENTER TO SIGN OUT AND RETURN YOUR KEYS AND NYU ID - Once your room has been inspected, your items are out of the space, and you are ready to leave the residence hall, please bring your NYU ID Card and ALL keys to the Resource Center.

CHECKING OUT WHEN THE RESOURCE CENTER IS CLOSED? (12:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m.) - Get your room inspected during the previous evening before the Resource Center closes and upon your departure from the building utilize the express check-out box — located in the lobby near public safety. Upon completing these envelopes, place your key and NYU ID card inside it and drop it in the box.

QUESTIONS? Contact your residence hall staff.
