Contact Avery to schedule an appointment with Anita, or to reach Devon, contact him directly.


The Student Engagement Team helps support students through all aspects of student life.

For questions about student clubs, organizations, and leadership opportunities, or events like Salute, Orientation, or Parent & Family Day, reach out to Caroline or Tom.

Graduate Admissions Team

Applying to or thinking about applying to one of our Graduate Programs?  Grad Admissions is here to assist.  Peter handles application and tech support and can help you with questions you may have about the application process itself.  John oversees graduate student Financial Aid, credential evaluation, and grad housing.  Laura is here to assist with any general questions about graduate programs and should be your first point of contact if you need to get in touch with the Graduate Admissions team.  Get her contact info in her bio or send an e-mail to tisch.gradadmissions@nyu.edu to get things started.


If you're interested in applying to an undergraduate program at Tisch but aren't sure where to start, Patricia is ready to get your questions answered.  Whether you're just finishing up high school or are looking to transfer from one department to another within Tisch, reach out to her.  She can also assist with general admissions questions, readmission questions for student looking to return, and can help with the process of declaring a second major with Tisch.

Tisch Counseling and Wellness

Counseling is a professional relationship that helps you clarify issues, discover your true wishes and feelings, and deal effectively with problems. Tisch is fortunate to have two designated counselors with experience helping students in the arts, but you should never hesitate to reach out to the NYU Wellness Exchange 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to discuss anything that's on your mind.
