CONGRATULATIONS!

After receiving over 800 applications, you were selected by the admissions committee to join your fellow artists, media extraordinaire in what will be an amazing 4 weeks of intense study in the arts. Please make sure to read every page thoroughly, make all deadlines, and share this blog with your family and loved ones.

We look forward to meeting you soon!

Reminder: Read Through Program and School Policies

Students need to familiarize themselves with all policies listed on the blog and are expected to adhere to them throughout the program. Please see the list below and feel free to ask us any questions about them.

Tisch Program Policies

Students will receive college-credit, but as minors there are additional policies you must adhere to, such as curfew times, the zero-tolerance policy, and attendance requirements. Please read through these policies again and make sure to discuss them with your family.

Academic Policies

Please read through this statement so you understand the guidelines for submitting or using original works.

Conduct Policies

Please read through these policies on substance use, harassment and community responsibility. Before arriving students must digitally sign indicating they understand these policies when they fill out their online supplemental forms.

Residential Hall Policies

Students should understand the noise policy, and other residential hall rules. Students will receive a full list of residential violations when they move in, but this should still be read in advance.


Students who violate policies will be subject to disciplinary action, including but not limited to dismissal from the program, without refund of tuition or fees. For more information about the residential student conduct process, please visit the Student Conduct Policy and Process page.

Tisch HS Forms and Travel & Emergency Contact Form

Please note you should have submitted your supplemental forms either through your NYU Profile or by emailing the forms in a single PDF to university.programs@nyu.edu or to tisch.highschool@nyu.edu . You should have also completed your Travel and Emergency Contact Information form by now. If you have not submitted these materials – please go to the “Important Deadlines” tab on this blog and send in these materials now.

Residential Life Events and Activities

As part of each of your program’s curriculum you will be attending events, shows, and meeting industry professionals. In addition, Weinstein will host events and activities you can sign up for, as long as it doesn’t conflict with any class work or required events for your program. There will be many events including;  baseball games, Broadway shows, museum visits etc.  To ensure that students get to attend some of these events there will be a formal RSVP process sent via email.

First, two weeks before the scheduled week of events, on Wednesdays, you will receive an email at your NYU email address with information about the upcoming week’s events, from Sunday through Saturday.  The email will include a link to an online Eventbrite RSVP form and you can sign up for the events of your choosing. The RSVP system will close the following Monday by noon.

After the RSVP deadline, you will receive an email by noon on Thursday confirming your space at an event.  If you do not receive an email confirming your space for an event you wish to attend, you can always go to the Weinstein Resource Center on the day of the event and fill out a rush lottery card. Just before the group is scheduled to leave, names will be picked from the rush lottery at random to fill any space that is available.

Residential Life events are popular, and staff will make sure they provide every opportunity possible so that every student gets to attend events of interest.  Because space is limited, you might not be able to attend every single event scheduled, but you will be able to attend at least a few each week if not more!

Watch your NYU email two weeks before the program begins for the first week’s RSVP form. Please note that you won’t receive your finalized department course and curricula event calendar until your orientation on Sunday July 9th. So be prepared to have to cancel any reservations with Residential Life staff if you have a conflicting class, curricula event or class event. Events and RSVP will also be discussed at orientation if you have any questions.

Enjoy the events this summer!

Requesting a Transcript After Completion of Tisch Summer High School

College Credit and Course Information

During the four weeks with the Tisch Summer High School Program, students will earn six college credits, accredited by New York University. Each college or university has their own transfer policy, so students will need to inquire how credits earned in the Tisch Summer High School Program can be applied once they are admitted to an undergraduate program.

All grades will be posted by September, but academic transcripts are not automatically sent at the end of summer. If students would like an academic transcript, they can make a request by:

  • Visiting the Registrar’s Office located at the Student Services Center (25 West 4th Street)
  • Mailing or faxing a letter to University Registrar.
  • More information can be found on the registrar’s website .

Transcripts can be requested at any time. When making requests in person, photo ID must be presented. Mailed or faxed requests require the signature of the student. Only the student can make a request for his or her grades.

Please note that any students who have not completely paid all charges attributed to their program will not be able to request a transcript until their Bursar account is settled. Students with questions about their account should contact the Office of the Bursar at NYU at (212) 998-2806 or bursar.studentaccounts@nyu.edu . Please include the student identification number or Nnumber in the email correspondence or have it ready when calling the Bursar Office.

Policy Reminder: Overnight Leave

As we get closer to the start of the program, this is a good time to make sure you’ve read and understood all Policies.

The specific policy on Overnight Leaves is that students are not allowed to be away overnight or on weekends except for extenuating circumstances or emergencies. In such cases, students are required to notify the Tisch High School program administrator and dormitory staff of any leave by submitting an Overnight Form . The form must be completed and signed by the parent or guardian on record for the student. Forms must be submitted 48 hours before the requested leave in order to receive proper approval from NYU and Tisch staff.

In addition, you will need to let your instructors and program directors know of any absences. Since much of the work done in the program is collaborative, any absence can have an effect on the group and the instructor will need to plan in advance for any student who may miss a class or project.  Please note that absences will affect your final grade and standing in the program.

Please make sure your family is aware of this policy, along with others!

Outdoor Movies, Theater Festivals, Concerts and More

The programs starts in less than a month and to get you even more excited about being in New York City, check out this great list of (mostly free) events around the city that the NYU Student Resource Center has compiled. You might even be attending some of these events as part of your program or residential life activities!

Although you’ll be pretty busy with classes, remember to discuss and decide upon appropriate boundaries and guidelines for travel off campus with your family before you get here. For more information about Public Safety, please check out this post.

Your Program Assistants

On July 9th you’ll be meeting 35 eager, helpful, happy, knowledgeable, PAs, who are counting down the days until your arrival on campus!  “That sounds great!,” you say, “but what is a PA?”

Weinstein Residence Hall will be housing Tisch High School, Steinhardt Music and Performing Arts Professions, and American Language Institute Global students this summer. PA is short for Program Assistant.  Program Assistants are NYU college students who will be living in the residential hall and will be your first source of information and support during your time at NYU.  All Tisch High School students will be assigned to one or more PAs.  Your PA will be hosting events  for your floor community, will be running Weinstein’s evening and weekend programs, and will be available to you when you have a question or concern about your time at NYU.  PAs are basically a walking guidebook about NYC and encyclopedia about all that is available to you at NYU!

Your PA wants to help you have a successful four weeks, so never hesitate to reach out to them while you are here.  They are spending this month preparing for your arrival, so believe it when we say they cannot wait to see you in a few weeks!
