We use the phrase "Orientation Over Time" to describe our approach to welcoming new students to our community. We see orientation as a series of activities and resources designed to prepare you for the beginning of your first term at Wagner and to help you get the best possible start to your graduate school journey.
Some of the early activities take place online, but the most intensive mandatory ones take place in New York during the three weeks before the first day of class.
Orientation Over Time
First Advisement Webinars
The Student Services team presents these web-based sessions, organized by degree program. The one-hour webinars include question and answer time with your Program Advisor. Participation in one First Advisement Webinar for your program is mandatory for all students.
The Student Services team will present a mandatory, in-person Academic Orientation Sessions prior to the start of the term. This session orients you to important policies, procedures, and resources at NYU Wagner and the University.

The International Student Orientation is mandatory for all students on an F-1 or J-1 visa and covers resources available at the University and NYU Wagner, immigration regulations, as well as advice from your fellow students.
