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:

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.
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 Jamie Lloyd, Assistant Director, Advisement & Student Services. Please email Jamie Lloyd 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.
NYU offers various resources to PhD students throughout their time in the degree program. These include specific office, staff, and access to resources dedicated to off-campus living, transportation, child care, research support, and student engagement. The Student Resource Center is a one-stop location for various questions about graduate student life.
