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

After submitting your tuition deposit, you will receive an e-mail that includes information on your next steps as a new graduate student. All new students must review the material in our Graduate Orientation Portal. Through this portal you will:

  • 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
  • Schedule their mandatory OGS check-in workshop (F1, J1 visa holders only)

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.
