Admitted Students

Congratulations on your offer of admission to NYU Shanghai's Class of 2024!

We are thrilled to welcome you to the NYU Shanghai family. Each year, NYU’s applicant pool becomes larger and more competitive, and you should be very proud of your accomplishment. On this page, you’ll find important information about the steps you need to take to confirm your enrollment at NYU Shanghai. You'll also learn how to complete other relevant items so you're all set by the first day of classes.

When you were admitted, you were given a NetID and password. This will allow you to access your student portal. You'll need this information handy as you go through the links below.

Respond to Your Offer of Admission and Confirm Your Enrollment


Go to NYUAlbert and click on “View Application Status.” Click on "Admitted Student's Portal."

for replying online or by mail

  • Early Decision I: January 3
  • Early Decision II: March 1
  • Regular Decision: May 1

Please respond to your offer of admission by the deadlines stated above. After the deadline passes, we may relinquish your place in the class. Keep in mind, if you accept our offer, you must withdraw any applications you have pending at other colleges or universities.

Set Up Your NYU Email And Enroll in Multi-Factor Authentication

Email is an important tool NYU uses to pass along critical information about the enrollment process. Soon after you confirm your enrollment, you’ll be assigned an NYU email address and given instructions on how to create your account. Once created, please check your email regularly. Contact NYU’s global IT Service Desk at if you have trouble creating your account.

NYU uses Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) to help protect your sensitive information online. Visit to enroll in MFA. MFA will become mandatory for newly enrolled NYU students one day after the Census Capture date on the NYU Shanghai Academic Calendar.

Submit Housing Deposit

NYU Shanghai students have guaranteed housing on campus for all four years of undergraduate study, and are required to live in student housing for the first two. You’ll be prompted to submit your non-refundable $1,000 housing reservation, online housing application and your $500 tuition deposit (see “Respond to Your NYU Admission Offer” above) once you accept your offer of admission. Please note that the $1,000 housing deposit is a separate payment from the $500 tuition deposit and is due by June 1.

We will be in touch with you in the coming months with more information. In the meantime, you can learn more about housing and dining at NYU Shanghai.

Submit Your Final Transcripts

We understand that the ongoing challenges associated with COVID-19 has created significant interruptions to many students' education, and prolonged school closures may result in a delay in final transcripts or examination results becoming available. Please do your best to submit final transcripts by August 1. However, we will work with anyone who may need special accommodations as a result of the impact of COVID-19.


For Students Attending Non-U.S. Institutions: All matriculated students who have attended an institution outside of the United States are required to have their final graduation documents authenticated by our partner, Educational Credential Evaluators (ECE). Please review our Proof of Graduation Requirements for Students Attending Non-US. Institutions for instructions.
