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.
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.
Please read through this statement so you understand the guidelines for submitting or using original works.
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.
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.
Please note you should have submitted your supplemental forms either through your NYU Profile or by emailing the forms in a single PDF to email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org . 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.
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!

NYU College Fair

This annual fair will feature over 75 colleges and universities from all over the United States. Come with questions and learn more about what each school has to offer its students!

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 firstname.lastname@example.org . Please include the student identification number or Nnumber in the email correspondence or have it ready when calling the Bursar Office.
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!
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.
Students have the option of purchasing their linens through Dorm College Packages, facilitated by the NYU Bookstore. Previously, pick-up was set to be made at the NYU Bookstore. However, if you choose to purchase these packages, pick-up will now be at Weinstein Hall located at 5-11 University Place.
