NYU welcomes international students! In most cases, international students must obtain a student visa in order to attend. It is important to allow plenty of time between admission and the start of the program to ensure that all visa steps are completed. As such, all international students must submit their I-20 application to the Office for Global Services by the April 1, 2017 deadline. Permanent residents and individuals in the U.S. pursuant to certain non-immigrant visa categories are not required to submit visa documentation to enroll in courses. Please contact the NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) with specific visa related questions at email@example.com.
All international students MUST check in with the NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) in order to be in compliance. All students who receive a visa for this program will be required to attend a OGS check-in workshop which will be facilitated by Tisch.
Currently studying IN the United States
International students studying in the US (at NYU or at another academic institution) who has a F-1 or J-1 visa are not required to submit additional visa documentation to enroll in courses at NYU.
Currently studying OUTSIDE the United States
NYU requires international students enrolling in courses to have an F-1 or J-1 visa. The NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) can assist you in obtaining an I-20 to process your F-1 or J-1 visa. After accepting your place in the program and payment of your confirmation deposit has been received, you will receive instructions for submitting the I-20/DS-2019 application. The I-20 is the immigration document used to apply for your F-1 student visa. In order to obtain the I-20, students will need to turn in a complete application to the OGS office. You will need your student identification number or Nnumber to fill out the application. This Nnumber will have been included in your acceptance email to the Tisch Summer High School Program.
A complete application includes:
1) the 3 page application form – [Sections A-D]
2) a copy of your admission email
3) a copy of passport photo page
4) $50 application fee payable to NYU
5) students must show that they have sufficient funds to cover their tuition/fees, health insurance*, and living expenses during the course of their program. Living expenses are calculated at $500/week. (This proof can be shown in the form of a bank statement, but there are other options listed in the I-20 instructions.)
Incomplete applications will be placed on administrative hold until a complete application is received. Please send in complete application in one PDF to firstname.lastname@example.org. To ensure adequate time for visa processing, send applications to OGS as soon as you can.
Processing within the Office of Global Services takes about 2 weeks. When your I-20 is ready, they will send the document to your preferred address. Once you receive the I-20, you will see your SEVIS** number over the barcode. You can use your SEVIS ID to pay your SEVIS fee and schedule an appointment with the US Consulate abroad to obtain your F-1 student visa. You shouldn’t schedule an appointment at your embassy without the I-20 form, but we encourage you to visit their website so you know what the timeline may be for any required security checks.
