STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
NYU requires that all students registered in degree-granting programs maintain health insurance. As an international student, you are automatically enrolled in the NYU-sponsored health plan at the highest level. If you maintain other health insurance coverage outside of the US that meets the University’s requirements outlined below, you may apply to waive the NYU sponsored plan by the appropriate deadline (see Enrollment Deadlines).
SEXUAL AND RELATIONSHIP RESPECT SERVICES

OFFICE OF EQUAL OPPORTUNITY
The vision of the Office of Equal Opportunity, in partnership with faculty, staff, and students, is to play a leadership role both at New York University and within the broader higher education community in promoting diversity, cultural sensitivity, and equal opportunity in academic excellence, research, teaching, scholarship, and service.
- New York University is committed to maintaining an environment that encourages and fosters appropriate conduct among all persons and respect for individual values. Accordingly, the University is committed to enforcing this Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy and Complaint Procedures at all levels in order to create an environment free from discrimination, harassment, retaliation and/or sexual assault.
- Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 (Title IX) states that “No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance.” It protects individuals from sexual or gender-based bullying, discrimination, harassment, and violence. This includes protection from being retaliated against for filing a complaint of discrimination or harassment.
- The New York University Bias Response Line provides a mechanism through which members of our community can share or report experiences and concerns of bias, discrimination, or harassing behavior that may occur within our community.
- If you are unsure whether to use the Bias Response Line, local Wagner staff can assist in managing your IDBEA-related concerns:
