Admitted PhD Students

Congratulations on your admission to the PhD program! Here are some resources to help you navigate your next steps at NYU Wagner. To begin, please complete the 4 steps to accepting your offer.

 

1. REPLY TO YOUR OFFER OF ADMISSION

After you have viewed your acceptance letter on your Application Status page, reply to our offer of admission by completing the "Reply to Offer of Admission" form on your Forms checklist. 

2. ACTIVATE YOUR NYU NETID

You must activate your NetID to access student resources and submit your enrollment deposit. 

Visit NYU Start and follow the prompts to activate your NYU NetID. Activating your NetID provides you access to a number of student resources and services. Your NetID is a unique alphanumeric code found in your acceptance letter. It is not your University ID. Your University ID, also known as your N number, is a 9-character ID number starting with a capital N. For help, contact the NYU ITS Help Desk at 212.998.3333 or email askITS@nyu.edu

3. SUBMIT YOUR OFFICIAL, SEALED TRANSCRIPTS

Admitted students are required to hold a four-year bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university in the United States or an equivalent degree from a foreign country.

Please login to your Application Status page to check whether we received your official, sealed transcripts with final degree conferral on your Forms checklist. If your Application Checklist indicates that an official copy of your transcript is required, please contact the appropriate college or university to request that they send a copy of your official, sealed transcripts to: 

NYU Wagner Admissions
295 Lafayette Street, 2nd Floor
New York, New York 10012

4. SUBMIT I-20 APPLICATION TO THE OFFICE OF GLOBAL SERVICES (INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS ONLY)

International applicants may need a visa before beginning graduate work at NYU Wagner. The NYU Office of Global Services (OGS) cannot process your I-20 visa application if you have not accepted our offer of admission and submitted your $1000 USD non-refundable enrollment deposit. 

All new international students should review this pre-arrival information and email OGS at ogs@nyu.edu with any questions. You may also reach them by phone at 212.998.4720.

Instructions on how to start your I-20 application

Come to visit us in New York City! It is very important that you arrange a time to come to campus and meet with your faculty advisor and Diana Beck, the staff member overseeing your program. Please email Diana Beck as soon as you accept your offer of admission to make arrangements. 

After you accept your offer and complete the other required steps, you will receive a registration guide via email, which contains registration information and important dates. Stay in touch with your faculty advisor; they'll assist you in mapping out your program. 

You should contact wagner.financialaid@nyu.edu if you have any questions about your financial aid package. Feel free to set up an appointment with Sandra Oliveira to discuss your award and account logistics.
