CHECKLIST OF THINGS TO DO
- REGISTER FOR THE WAGNER INTERNATIONAL STUDENT ORIENTATION
Confirm that you will attend the mandatory International Student Orientation (January 21). This session will be offered online. The registration link is available on the Orientation Activities page.
- OBTAIN YOUR NYU ID CARD
First, visit photoid.nyu.edu and upload a photo to be used on your NYUCard by following the guidelines and instructions on the site. You must have activated your NYU NetID to access the system. Photos submitted and approved by 3 pm can be picked up (with proof of ID) on the following business day at the NYU Card Center at 7 Washington Place.
- REPORT YOUR ARRIVAL TO NYU BEFORE SCHOOL STARTS (OGS)
The U.S. government requires all new and transfer F-1 and J-1 students report their arrival to NYU to OGS. To report your arrival, go to the New International Student Check-in and Orientation. Use the OGS Arrival Checklist as a guide to help you when you arrive to New York.
- FILL OUT IMMUNIZATION FORMS
Be sure to read and respond to the information you receive from NYU's Student Health Center about the required health insurance plan and immunization requirements. Please note that the spring deadline is January 15, 2021.
- REVIEW NYU-SPONSORED HEALTH INSURANCE POLICY
All new students are automatically enrolled and charged for the NYU-Sponsored Comprehensive Insurance Plan. Be sure to review the plan policy and take note of the deadline to submit a waiver as well as the deadline to downgrade to the Basic Insurance Plan. You will remain enrolled in the Comprehensive Insurance plan unless you complete the online enrollment/waiver process before the semester deadline. The deadline to waive the plan is February 10, 2021.
