I-20/DS-2019 and Visa Information

NYU requires students enrolling in courses (this includes summer students) to be at a ststus that would allow study such as a F-1 or J-1 visa. The NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) can assist you in obtaining an I-20 or DS-2019 to process your F-1 or J-1 visa. Once you have completed a program application, you will receive instructions for submitting the I-20/DS-2019 documentation. Contact OGS with specific visa related questions at newinternationalstudents@nyu.edu. You must be enrolled as a full-time student. All MPAP Programs are full-time and zero credit courses. 

* International students are NOT permitted to study on a B-1 (tourist) visa

Please Note: International students currently studying in the US (at NYU or at another academic institution) who currently are in a F-1 or J-1 visa status are not required to submit additional visa documentation in order to enroll in summer courses at NYU. Unless they need to transfer their SEVIS record to NYU.  Please contact OGS directly if this is the case.

International Student Check-In

Upon arrival in the United States, all international students must attend an International Student Check-In with the NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) in order to be in compliance. Prior to the start of your program, you will receive information from OGS about your scheduled check-in date and time.  

Mandatory Health Insurance

  • At NYU, Student Health Insurance is required for F-1 and J-1 students.
  • International students are automatically enrolled in a Summer Term health insurance policy at a flat rate (comprehensive plan), but students have the option to downgrade to the basic policy if eligible.
    • To downgrade your Health Insurance plan, you must  contact the NYU Student Health Center to see if you are eligible. For more information, visit the Student Health Center website.
