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.

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!

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!

Living in the Residence Hall

For many of you, this will be the first time you’ll be on your own. This will give you an opportunity to experience college life; learn how to be independent and responsible for yourself, as well as live with new people. This can be very rewarding, but you may also experience some homesickness, which is normal. You’ll have opportunities to speak or Skype with your friends and family which can help you get through feelings of homesickness, but we also encourage you to get out and meet your classmates and floormates! In the Residence Hall, you’ll meet students from your program, from other Tisch departments, as well as Pre-College students.

As a resident, you have support networks within the Residence Hall. Each floor will have Program Assistants (PAs) who are NYU college students and serve as your floor leader. Your PAs will organize floor events and gatherings, so there will be many opportunities for you to get to know the members of your floor. And whenever you have a question or issue, your PA is your first resource–never hesitate to reach out to your PA!

You’ll get the chance to meet a variety of people in the residence hall,  your home away from home at NYU.
