We look forward to having you join us!

Before the Program Begins

How to Access Your NYUHome Account

  • Activate your Net ID - Go to http://start.nyu.edu and follow the instructions. Your NetID is your login and username for your NYUHome and e-mail accounts. When you do this, you will at the same time also enable your NYUHome portal and NYU email accounts.
  • Log in to NYUHome - Go to http://home.nyu.edu and enter your NetID and password. Visit the various tabs to familiarize yourself with the layout and information available.

  • Log in to Albert - From the NYUHome Welcome screen, click on the tab labeled “Academics.” On the upper left side of the Academics page, click the box labeled “Albert Login.” You will now be at the Albert Welcome screen. Albert is NYU’s student information system.

  • Accept/Decline Your Admissions Offer - Once logged into Albert, “Applicant” should appear at the top of the page. Click on “Application Status” under “Visiting Students.” You will be directed to a page to “Accept” or “Decline” your admissions offer. Please follow the instructions carefully.

Confirm Your Acceptance to the Program

Your acceptance email explains what you need to do in order to confirm that you plan to attend the program. You will need to submit a confirmation deposit.

After you confirm your place in the program, you will receive an email to your NYU email address with important program forms via Slate to complete and submit. One of those forms includes a housing license form - completing this form opts you into housing, which is mandatory for the Summer High School Residential Program. Please follow the instructions closely as a housing application is no longer required. To secure your space in housing, you must complete the housing license form no later than May 27, 2024. Tisch Special Programs will be sending a list of all confirmed participants to NYU Housing so your space is secured.

You will need to have your NYU Identification number or Nnumber handy when contacting the Office of the Bursar. You may also visit their website.

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. Students should identify as participating in the Summer 2024 program and OGS asks they select "Visiting Students/High School" as the program the student has been admitted to.

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 - please include your NYU students identification number or Nnumber and your full name when corresponding with OGS. 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 who are in-residency 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 $372 for international students. These summer health insurance rates are valid for the length of the Tisch Summer High School program taking place between July 7th and August 3rd, 2024. 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 Wellfleet Student at (413) 733-4540 or https://wellfleetstudent.com/. 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 please contact Wellfleet Student at (413) 733-4540 or https://wellfleetstudent.com/. 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.edu or 212-998-4720.

In-Person Arrival and Check-In

Getting to NYU

Please note that all students are responsible for making arrangements to get themselves to the residence hall for check-in. For directions, call the NYU Information Center, 212-998-INFO (212-998-4636) or visit Getting to NYU visitor information site.

Please note that if you will be using a car service (e.g. Uber, Lyft, Juno), airports may have designated pickup and drop-off service locations. Visit the website of your airport of arrival to find this information; our closest airports are JFK, LGA, and EWR.

Prior to the check-in date, please note the residence hall can not accept any types of packages or luggage for students. Items for students will only be accepted by the residence hall after July 7th, when the students have officially checked into the residence hall.

Check-In Information

All students will be housed in double rooms in a shared suite of 4 students. Each suite will share one bathroom. All housing assignments are done by the NYU Housing Office and are randomly generated; therefore, no housing roommate requests are accepted for this program. Students enrolled in the Dance, Drama, Drama: Production and Design, Dramatic Writing, Film, and Photography tracks will live in Manhattan. Students enrolled in the Game Design and Recorded Music tracks will live in Brooklyn.

Students must check in to the residence halls on Sunday, July 7th, 2024. The residence halls will open for check-in at 9:00 a.m. The precise locations will be sent to students via email by NYU Housing. The residence halls will not be open before check-in time and you will not be able to check in to your residence hall before July 7th, 2024. If you are arriving in New York before the start of the program, you must secure your own housing arrangements until you are able to check in on Sunday, July 7th, 2024.

It's important to note that many students will be moving into the residence halls on Sunday and patience and positivity will be key during check-in. For that reason, we strongly urge Tisch Summer High School families to move into the hall according to the check-in information that will be sent to you via email. Students will be given orange wristbands for parents to assist with move-in on that day; they will be allowed in the hall for a limited time.  Students can proceed to the front desk of the residence hall where you will be greeted by program assistants (PAs). You will be given your room assignment and key to your room. Students should also bring a separate photo ID such as a learner’s permit or driver’s license or passport.

Department orientations and residence hall meetings will begin later that afternoon into the early evening. After students check-in and get settled in their residence hall room, we encourage students to eat lunch before afternoon events.

NYU ID CARD

The Office of Residential Life and Housing will send all residential students a pre-arrival confirmation email to their NYU Home account with instructions on how to submit a photo to create your NYUCard. Students who submit their photo online prior to check-in day will receive their NYU ID at their residence hall during check-in day. 

Students who do not submit their photo online will be issued a temporary ID card when they check-in to their residence hall. The temporary ID card will allow students access to their residence hall for only 72 hours after their check-in. Within 72 hours of check-in, students MUST visit the NYUCard Center at Washington Square or Brooklyn to get their NYUCard.

In Washington Square, the NYUCard Center is located inside the lobby on the ground floor of 7 Washington Place (at the corner of Mercer Street). In Brooklyn, the NYUCard Center is located inside of 2 MetroTech Center on the ground floor.

What to Bring for Move-In

For the Residence Hall:

  • Cleaning supplies for your room and bathroom
  • Alarm clock
  • Personal items from home to make your room comfortable
  • Linens: students will need to bring sheets, blankets, and pillows for extra-long twin beds and a set of towels.

Below is a suggested list of items to bring for the program:

  • Comfortable shoes
  • Reusable water bottle
  • Sunscreen and sunglasses
  • Umbrella

Housing Information for In-Person Programs

Curfew

All students living on campus must check-in to their residential hall no later than 11:00 p.m. every night of the week and weekend. Students may leave the hall after 7:00 a.m. each day. All students must be in their rooms and adhere to quiet hours at 1:00 a.m. nightly. Students are required to submit their NYUCard to the residence hall front desk each night by curfew in order to be in compliance.

Roommates

Living with someone else, getting to know your roommate, and learning how to respectfully share your space is one of the great benefits of living on campus as a college student. Because of limited space in the residential hall and the goal of the residential experience to allow students to broaden their experiences and meet new people, students are not allowed roommate requests.

Visitors & Guests

Students are not allowed to have guests, including friends and family. Guests are only allowed into the building on move-in and move-out days. Anyone visiting a student during the program is welcome to meet them in the residential hall lobby.

Overnight & Weekend Leave Requests

Residential students are not allowed to be away overnight or on weekends. Absence from their program can negatively impact a student’s experience. In the case of extenuating circumstances or emergencies, the parent/guardian on record for the student may submit the below form. Overnight leave requests must come from parents/guardians; requests received from students will automatically be denied. 

Overnight Leave Request Form–NYU High School Programs

Requests must be submitted at least 48 hours in advance of the leave and will be reviewed Monday-Thursday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Once the form is received and processed, the student and parent will receive an email notification whether the leave is approved or denied. Should the leave request be denied, the student is expected to remain in residence on campus and comply with curfew. (NOTE: The overnight leave review process is very strict so if your request is denied, the student is expected to comply with the terms of the denial).

If the leave request is approved, the student cannot leave campus before 7:00 a.m. on the day of departure, and they must return to their residence hall by 11:00 p.m. curfew on the day of their return. The overnight form is not intended as a means to stay out after curfew, and students cannot be on the NYU campus while on leave. Students and families with questions may contact the Building Leadership Team of your student’s residence hall. Please note that our leadership teams’ office hours are Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Founders Hall: founders.hall@nyu.edu
Othmer Hall: othmer.hall@nyu.edu

Residential Hall Staff

Each hall floor has its own Program Assistant (PA), an NYU college student who will be the students’ main resource and guide during the program.

The residence hall is led by a team of professional administrators who oversee building operations, supervise the PAs, help plan and execute the events and activities offered during the summer, and serve as an important resource for students whenever they have a question or need.

Free Time During the Program

NYU does not have an enclosed campus. While students will be accompanied by program staff while on program-sponsored events, students can leave campus on their own during their off time if they choose. More information about the policies and rules for leaving campus is available in the NYU High School Programs Handbook. Students, parents, and guardians are encouraged to carefully review the Handbook and discuss among themselves expectations for off-campus travel and safety in the city.

 

To learn more about housing and living on campus, please refer to the NYU Campus Housing website here.

Health Insurance
212-443-1020

NYU values the health of its students and wants to guard against financial hardships that may result from high healthcare expenses. All students are encouraged to carry their health insurance cards at all times during the program in case of an emergency.

Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis; however, examples include extended time on exams, a smaller proctored testing environment, supplemental class notes, and housing accommodations.

Students are strongly encouraged to contact CSA well in advance of the beginning of the program to allow necessary time to review disability requests and implement accommodations. Please contact CSA with any questions you may have about their services.

NYU CAMPUS INFORMATION

NYU DINING SERVICES

As part of the residential 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. Dining schedule and locations can be found here.

Students also have the option of swiping their card to use a meal plan towards getting a to-go sandwich during breakfast time prior to heading to class(es) for the day if their classes are off-campus and/or they have curricular events later in the day. If looking to explore this option, students will have to swipe their ID card twice in the morning at the dining hall to take advantage of this. 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 AskCampusServices@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.

Summer Meal Plans - 2024 (prices below):

  • 10 meals and $30.00 dining dollars per week /$192.00 per week ($768 total) **For all students, this is your current plan**
     

  • 12 meals and $30.00 dining dollars per week /$213.00 per week ($852 total)*
     

  • 17 meals and $30.00 dining dollars per week/ $274.00 per week ($1,096 total)*
     

  • 21 Meals and $30.00 dining dollars per week /$306.00 per week ($1,224 total)

CAMPUS CASH

Campus Cash activates your NYU Card to work like a bank debit card. Money can be deposited into your Campus Cash account and can be drawn upon for purchase of goods and services at many locations, including the NYU Bookstore and NYU Dining. All you do is swipe your NYU Card card and your account is debited. Campus Cash can be used at several locations on campus, including: NYU Dining locations (tax-free for students), most vending machines on Campus, the NYU Bookstore, Reprographics/Mail Services, NYU Skirball, the Student Health Center, and select other locations. 

Health and Wellness

Health Insurance for Residential Students

Only international residential students are enrolled in NYU student health insurance. All domestic high school students are required to maintain their own domestic health insurance. 

The NYU Student Health Center (SHC) provides students with urgent medical evaluation and support services. Students in need of urgent medical advice can call the SHC to request to speak with a triage nurse. Upon evaluation, the SHC will either provide urgent care or refer the student to a local urgent care clinic or hospital so they receive the best care for their immediate needs. Call 212-443-1000 with any questions regarding medical services.

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 residential 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 and over-the-counter medications they may need, by either securing enough medication for the entire duration of the program or plan for access to a local mental health professional who can write prescriptions while they are in the residential program.

Campus Safety

New York University Department of Campus Safety has uniformed security officers who are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year; an emergency number (212) 998-2222; emergency call boxes located throughout the main campus, green light buildings staffed 24 hours a day by Campus Safety Officers, Safe Havens, and transportation services. To learn more about NYU's open campus and how to stay safe, please visit their website.

NYU Alerts

NYU has the capacity to send blast messages via text, email, or voice message to your mobile device in order to provide you with direct and timely emergency information in case of an emergency. These messages will be important to safeguard your personal safety. Please be sure that your "abroad" number is updated in Albert in order to receive these alerts.

Mobile Campus Safety App

Safe NYU is New York University’s free mobile campus safety app, developed by the Department of Campus Safety and its Division of Emergency Preparedness and Communications.

The app provides safety and security services at the tap of an icon, including:

ACADEMIC INFORMATION

Academic Requirements

When looking at your schedule, you may see the dates of your classes on Albert taking place during the Summer Session II term, but the actual dates of your program are what's listed on your program-specific website, as our program takes place within NYU's Summer Session II. Please note that for 2024 the dates you should follow and adhere to are Sunday, July 7th for check-in through Saturday, August 3rd for check-out.

About one month prior to the start of your program, your department will send you via NYU email academic information on specific requirements needed in preparation for your program. Such academic information may include attire requirements, coursework preparation, etc. If you have questions about this, you may reach out to your academic department directly for more information.

Student Conduct Standards

Students and parents/guardians should discuss with each other the rules and policies set forth here. Please be advised that due to the particular nature of NYU summer programs, certain student conduct policies are considered to be fundamental to the success of the program. 

Failure to comply with the rules and policies of the University and/or of NYU summer programs may lead to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from a program with no refund of tuition or fees.

These policies can be found on the NYU Summer High School Programs Handbook website.

Program Metrocards

Please wait until after you meet with your departments during the in-person residential orientation to buy your personal MetroCard. Each department is providing MetroCards to their students so that they can attend program specific activities/events (amounts vary with departments). The amount of rides varies based on department and studio. As a reminder, please make sure not to lose it! It is not replaceable. If you want to travel during your downtime, you will need to purchase your own MetroCard.

Here is what each in-person residential department will provide in terms of transportation:

  • Dance: 8-ride Metrocard

  • Drama:
    Atlantic Studio — 30-day unlimited Metrocard
    Experimental Theatre Wing Studio — 8-ride Metrocard

For more information about MetroCards, please visit the MTA website.

For more information about getting to NYU, please visit the Getting to NYU Page.

College Credit and Course Information

During the 4 weeks with the Tisch Summer High School Program, students will earn between 4-6 college credits. Each college or university has its own transfer policy, so students will need to inquire how credits earned in the Tisch Summer High School Program can be applied once they are admitted to an undergraduate program.

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)

  • Mailing or faxing a letter to the University Registrar.

  • 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 with questions about their account should contact the Office of the Bursar at NYU at (212) 998-2806 or bursar.studentaccounts@nyu.edu. Please include the student identification number or N# in the email correspondence or have it ready when calling the Office of the Bursar.

Residential Check-Out Information

Please note that all residential students are responsible for making arrangements to get themselves home after the program ends. The last day of the program is Friday, August 2nd, and all students must check out of the residence hall on Saturday, August 3rd by 12:00 p.m. (noon). On August 3rd, a student is allowed one guest helper to assist with move-out; they will be allowed in the hall for a limited time. Students cannot check-out after this date and the residence hall will not hold onto packages for students after August 3rd. Students may leave with their parents on Friday evening; however, parents or friends will not be allowed in the hall to assist with move-out. 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 campus safety. Upon completing these envelopes, place your key and NYU ID card inside it and drop it in the box.
