Academic Support Program

The Academic Support Program (ASP) is a semester-long program where academic advisors provide support for students to be successful in their academic journey. Students meet with academic advisors on a regular basis and we strive to help students realize their potential - at the University and beyond. 

Program Requirements

During the program, the advisor will work with students to tailor a program to identify their academic strengths and interests and connect them with resources that will enable the student to successfully achieve goals at NYU Shanghai. Participating in the academic support program, students are expected to 1) check emails & attend meetings promptly; 2) prepare for meetings; 3) communicate with and make use of support services and staff; 4) set and make progress toward goals.
