Graduate Orientation

Welcome to the Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development! NYU Steinhardt Graduate Orientation is comprised of several components designed to welcome you to our vibrant community and allow you to get connected, be involved, and stay informed.

Orientation Programming for New Students

  • Watch a video from your department's chair
  • Learn about your program's process for advisement and registration
  • Understand your major and degree requirements
  • Learn how to use the ALBERT registration system
  • Discover services and activities to help you grow and develop academically and professionally

International students will:

  • Review and take steps toward satisfying Steinhardt's faculty policy on English proficiency
  • Understand the requirements for registering for the appropriate number of credits
  • Register for the New Graduate International Student Seminar
  • Attend the mandatory OGS check-in workshop (F1, J1 visa holders only) - dates listed below

Statement on Academic Integrity
The relationship between students and faculty is the keystone of the educational experience at New York University. Mutual trust, respect and responsibility are foundational requirements. Thus, how you learn is as important as what you learn. A university education aims not only to produce high quality scholars, but to also cultivate honorable citizens.

Please complete the Academic Integrity Tutorial. Once you complete this tutorial your Departmental Academic Advisor will be notified.

New Graduate Student Welcome

At the beginning of each semester NYU Steinhardt hosts a welcome session to commemorate the arrival of new graduate students. Please join us to learn about policies and procedures at NYU Steinhardt that guide graduate study, find out about student resources in the school and university, and meet your colleagues. Stay tuned for more information.
