NYU Shanghai Textbook Policy
It is the policy of NYU Shanghai to purchase required textbooks in bulk in advance with the cost applied to students' bursar bills. This is done as a service to students for a number of reasons, including to ensure that textbooks are available in a timely manner and to ensure compliance with applicable copyright laws. NYU Shanghai works with approved vendors, prioritizes e-textbooks, and strives to minimize cost. Students are charged at cost, and therefore no profit is made by NYU Shanghai.
If you are taking a course for which every student must have an individual copy of a required textbook, you will be notified of the related charges prior to the course. If the textbook is provided as an e-version and you have a non-pirated hard copy, you may contact the Graduate Semester Study Office about verifying the hard copy and avoiding the e-version charge.
Health Insurance Information for Semester Study Students
Semester study students will be automatically waived out of the Wellfleet Plan and enrolled in the NYU-sponsored GeoBlue health insurance plan for the Fall semester. The cost of the GeoBlue plan will be covered by the Student Health Center; students will not be charged for the GeoBlue insurance. Their Bursar account will be adjusted accordingly to reflect these changes.
