Once you receive notification of acceptance, be sure to do the following:
Submit your Admissions Deposit
Information about submitting your admissions deposit to NYU is available in your letter of admission.
Activate your NYU Email Address
Your NYU email account will be the primary form of communication used between you and the University. Be sure that you activate your NetID and NYUHome account, which will give you access to your NYU email. Your NetID, which can be found in your admission letter, is used to sign into systems at NYU. To activate this NetID and set your password, go to the NYU Information Technology Services (ITS) Start page.
Look for Communication Regarding Class Registration
All new students starting their courses will be contacted via NYU e-mail by a professional academic advisor from the Office of Advising and Academic Services to discuss course advisement and registration procedures. You will have the opportunity to meet the advising staff, as well as your faculty advisor, at Orientation prior to the start of term. You will be assigned a faculty advisor within the first two weeks of the semester.
Please note: Before registering for courses, students will be asked to enter an emergency contact, including their cell phone number. Please ensure that the information you see in Albert is correct.

Submit University Immunization Documents
New York State Public Health Law 2165/2167 states that if you are taking six or more credits in a degree-granting program you must provide proof of immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella and acknowledge receipt of information regarding the disease meningitis. Visit the Student Health Center health requirements website to learn about the University's policy on health requirements. You must comply with the University's immunization requirements in order to remain enrolled in classes.
For more information about the NYU Student Health Insurance plan, please visit the Student Health Insurance website. In addition, if you currently have insurance that you will keep during your time at NYU, you should determine your eligibility to waive the Student Health Insurance. If you elect to waive the NYU health insurance plan, you must complete the Enrollment/Waiver Form online at Enrollment Waiver Form
