ALL Music Graduate Students must report at 9:30 a.m. for Theory and Aural Comprehension Placement, as well as Music History. There are NO exceptions.
New York State law and/or New York University requires all newly admitted students complete several health-related requirements. For complete information, visit www.nyu.edu/shc/about/health.requirements.html
All NYU students are assigned an NYUHome account with free access to email, a vital link of communication between the University and you. You may access your account from computer labs around campus and from your home computer. Activate your account at start.nyu.edu.
International students should review this section carefully and contact Jill.Stephenson@nyu.edu with any questions.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) requires F-1 and NYU-sponsored J-1 students to check in with the Office of Global Services. For details, click here. Failure to attend a check-in workshop may jeopardize your ability to remain legally in the U.S.
You are responsible for maintaining your immigration status. Report any change in your local address immediately. For questions regarding your visa status, permission to work, and traveling outside the United States, contact: Alison Jackson, 561 LaGuardia Place, 212 998 4720, firstname.lastname@example.org, www.nyu.edu/ogs.
You are required to take the English proficiency exam at the American Language Institute (ALI) if English is not your first language or if you did not graduate from a college or university where English was the language of instruction. A TOEFL score does not exempt you from the ALI English proficiency exam.
Your academic department may require the exam regardless of your English proficiency. It is your responsibility to be proficient in English in order to meet academic course requirements.
Space at ALI exams is limited, so you must sign up for a test by clicking on the link below for the date and time you prefer. Sign up for one test only. If your first choice is no longer available, click on other links until you find a test time when spaces are still available.
Students may complete the ALI exam only once within any 12-month period. If you take the test twice, your second set of scores will be discarded.
Exams are given at the American Language Institute: 7 East 12th Street, Room 821 (phone number: 212 998 7040). A $20 testing fee must be paid on the day of your exam. The evaluation will take approximately two hours.
Review ALI Results with Student Services Staff
Students who take the ALI English Proficiency Exam must meet with a Steinhardt Student Services staff member to review the results. Register here.
ALI Class Registration
Students who are matriculated in NYU Steinhardt will register for ALI courses in Albert along with their other courses. Students may only register for ALI courses approved for their proficiency level.
Students must register for ALI classes by 5:00 pm on Wednesday, January 29th in order to be guaranteed a seat in an ALI course. After this date, the ALI can accommodate students on a space available basis only.
PLEASE NOTE: If your visa status is F-1 or J-1, you are required to register for full-time study, 12 credits or more unless you are taking courses at ALI. If you are required to take classes at the ALI, it may take more time than you had originally expected to finish your required studies and there will be additional tuition charges. Courses taken at ALI are designed to improve your proficiency in English; they do not count as credits toward degree requirements. If you are attending NYU as an F-1 or J-1 student, you must obtain permission from OGS in order to register for an ALI course in your first semester while you are also registered for at least 6 academic credits in your program. After your first semester (if an F-1 or J-1 visa holder) you must register for at least 12 credits as well as whatever ALI course your academic program requires.
New Student Seminar
New Student Seminar for International Graduate Students (SAHS-GE 2003) is an opportunity to connect with other new students and obtain valuable information about working on- and off-campus, conducting library research, New York City, NYU Steinhardt, your academic experience, and more. (Required of NYU Steinhardt international graduate students during their first semester of study.)
Please enroll yourself in one of the following spring 2014 sections:
The seminar runs for eight weeks and does not meet during the first week of classes; the first meeting will be during the second week of classes (Monday, February 2 through Friday, February 6).
6:20 PM - 7:35 PM
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM
Every graduate student is assigned a program advisor. Your advisor will help you to understand degree requirements, electives, and academic options; plan your program schedule; evaluate academic progress; and acquaint you with specialized services open to you as a member of the University community.
Meet with your academic advisor for advisement and guidance: www.steinhardt.nyu.edu/advisement.
Once you have met with your academic advisor, you are ready to register for classes. You may not register for classes before being advised. Register on-line through Albert via the "Academics" tab in your NYUHome account. A useful webinar on how to search for classes and register on Albert is available at https://www.nyu.edu/registrar/sis/student_center_training.html
For payment and billing information, go to the NYU Bursar at 25 West 4th Street or visit www.nyu.edu/bursar.
