Need further clarification? No worries, we'll get back to you ASAP.
CAN I APPLY TO MORE THAN ONE SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM?
Students are welcome to participate in multiple summer study abroad programs as long as the program dates do not overlap. Please make appropriate program selections on the summer application.
CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IN A SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM IF I AM GOING TO GRADUATE IN THE SPRING?
Yes! If you are an NYU student, please make an appointment to talk to your advisor about taking courses over the summer prior to applying. If you are an international student, please contact your advisor about the possibility of extending your visa status.
If you are a visiting student you are also welcome to apply! Please note that if you decide to participate the only classes available are undergraduate courses, and you would still be responsible for all associated program fees, tuition costs, housing, etc.
DO I NEED A VISA TO STUDY ABROAD THIS SUMMER?
All admitted students are automatically referred to NYU's Office of Global Services for review, but ultimately, it is the student's responsibility to make all necessary arrangements to obtain a visa, if one is needed for travel on a summer abroad program. There are many resources at NYU to assist you, including the Office of Global Services, and tools like GlobalChek Plus located on NYU Home. You can access additional resources on the Visas for NYU Study Abroad page.
Please note that depending on citizenship, obtaining a visa can be a lengthy process. Students are encouraged to plan well in advance.
In addition, depending on your nationality and destination country, you may need a separate transit visa to make a connection in a foreign airport or cross through a foreign country. A transit visa is a visa that is valid for a very short period. Some countries have both transit visas and airport transit visas.
If required to transit through one or more countries to reach a destination, the traveler should check with their embassy and airline or authorized travel representative to determine whether one or more transit visa(s) are required. If required, it will be the traveler’s responsibility to secure the appropriate transit visa(s) prior to departure.
We encourage you to learn more about Transit Visas for Europe and U.S. Transit Visas.
DO I NEED A PASSPORT TO PARTICIPATE IN A SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAM?
Most students will require a passport to participate in a summer study abroad program. Please check to make sure you have a passport that will be valid for your intended program.
Passport Agencies and Centers may still be experiencing long processing delays due to the pandemic. In some cases processing has been delayed 3-4 months. Please check the State Department's Passport Services webpage for updates. Other countries may or may not be experiencing delays with processing. Please be sure to check your local passport services office for information.
HOW DO I CONFIRM MY SPOT IN THE PROGRAM ONCE I HAVE BEEN ADMITTED?
You will receive instructions about confirming your spot on your personalized enrollment portal.
WHY DO I HAVE AN ADVISOR HOLD FOR SUMMER REGISTRATION?
All students are required to receive advisor approval prior to registering for summer classes, as is the case for Fall and Spring semester registration. Students should make an appointment with their academic advisor.
WHEN IS MY SUMMER BILL DUE?
All payment deadlines for summer are determined by the NYU Office of the Bursar. Please check payment deadline dates. For both graduate and undergraduate students, Summer 2024 bills will be posted on April 10, 2024 and are due by May 7, 2024.
WHAT IS THE PAYMENT SCHEDULE FOR SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS?
Once a student has confirmed admission and registered for the proper amount of credits, the Office of the Bursar will issue a billing statement. You can visit the NYU Bursar website for complete billing information and instructions.
Please note that other costs associated with a summer study abroad program, such as housing, and the program and activities fee (if applicable), are generated throughout the spring and will be applied to your summer bursar bill.
WHAT FINANCIAL AID IS AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER STUDY ABROAD PROGRAMS?
There are financial resources available to both NYU and visiting students who wish to participate in a summer study abroad program.
Summer financial aid is available for all NYU students who are taking at least 1 credit during the summer term. It can be applied to on-campus summer courses as well as CAS Summer Abroad courses. Read more about Summer Financial Aid on their website. The CAS Dean's Opportunity Fund for Study Away is a need-based scholarship designated for eligible CAS matriculated students. Please note that you must be accepted to the program and secure your spot by confirming your place in the program before applying for this funding.
Visiting students, please speak to your home institution about applying financial aid to a CAS Summer Abroad program through a consortium agreement.
There are also many external study abroad funding resources that you can research independently. Please note that these opportunities are not administered by NYU, and students must contact the organizations directly for more information. Deadlines are coming up, so make sure to review soon. Some such extrernal resources are listed in the Financial Resources page.
WHEN IS THE MOVE-IN/MOVE-OUT DATE FOR MY PROGRAM?
NYU Housing is only provided for the exact dates of your summer program. The first day of the program is the day you are expected to arrive, and the last day of the program is when you are expected to depart.
Should you arrive earlier or leave later than your program's exact dates you will need to find alternative accommodations.
HOW DO I APPLY FOR A HOUSING EXEMPTION?
In most cases, it is mandatory for participants on an NYU summer study abroad program to stay in NYU provided housing for the duration of the program. NYU provided housing offers an immersive, community experience in locations carefully chosen for their safety, convenience and offered amenities.
Housing exemption requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis, and they are granted in very specific circumstances. The deadline to submit housing exemption requests is April 15. To make a request, you can view the link listed in your Enrollment Portal Checklist, or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING WITH ME WHEN I STUDY ABROAD?
Each NYU provided housing site offers different amenities. Please contact the program email listed on the program website with specific questions.
HOW DO I REQUEST MY OFFICIAL TRANSCRIPT?
If you would like an official transcript once you have completed the program, you must submit a transcript request to the Office of the University Registrar. The Transcript Request form is available on the NYU Office of the Registrar's website.
Please contact NYU's Office of Registrar directly with further questions.
In accordance with the general practice of colleges and universities, complete official transcripts and certifications are sent directly by the University. A partial transcript of a University record may not be issued. Once a final examination period has begun, no transcript will be forwarded for any student who is currently enrolled in courses
