To schedule an appointment, log into your Tisch College Central account at www.collegecentral.com/tisch and then select "Appointments" from the Dashboard to see available appointment slots and book a time. Please note that open appointment slots appear on the Tisch College Central platform on a rolling basis so if you don't see any available slots in a given week, check back later to see if more have been added.

Note: After your appointment is booked through Tisch College Central, you will be sent a Google Calendar invite that contains additional details (e.g. the appointment Zoom link, if that's the format you've chosen). If you do not receive the invite within 1 business day, please check your spam filter. For any questions about this process, please contact tisch.career@nyu.edu.

During our busy season, wait times for an appointment can be up to three weeks. For time-sensitive career questions (e.g. job/internship applications), we strongly encourage you to utilize our Express Chat services. Please be considerate of your fellow Tisch students and alums by keeping your appointments.
